Additional information Absence/presence of branchiae is not currently considered a valid diagnostic character at genera level of Eunicidae (Fauchald, 1992).  [details]

Synonymy Currently Lysibranchia is placed as a synonym of Marphysa based on the observations of Cinar (2005) placing Lysibranchia paucibranchiata, which was based on a juvenile eunicid, as a synonym of Marphysa bellii. However, this would automatically make Lysibranchia a senior synonym to a subsequent genus, Paucibranchia Molina-Acevedo, 2018, containing Eunice bellii Audouin & Milne Edwards (= Marphysa bellii) as its type species. Until the identity of the holotype of L. paucibranchiata has been re-examined further in a publication the existing statuses of Lysibranchia and Paucibranchia are retained. [details]
