Etymology Not stated by the author. The name is composed by the generic name Nereis preceded by the Latin prefix lepto-, meaning 'thin', 'fine', or 'slender', and according to Hartman (1945: 22) it refers to the expanded dorsal lobes of the atokous parapodia: "The phrase 'branchiis superioribus corporis medii et posterioris permagnis' refers to the very greatly expanded dorsal lobe ot atokous parapodia (Plate 3, Fig. 5), for which the generic name was coined." [details]

Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Kinberg (1865: 179): "Papillae pharyngis desideratae; partes laterales segmentorum sensim mutantes branchiis superioribus corporis medii et posterioris permagnis, elongatis, compressis, cirris dorsualibus terminalibus; setae verutae articulis longis et brevioribus.[details]

Diagnosis Emended diagnosis by Pettibone (1971: 7): "Prostomium subpyriform, with paired frontal antennae, biarticulate palps, and two pairs of eyes. Tentacular segment achaetous and apodous; four pairs of tentacular cirri with distinct cirrophores. Dorsal cirri at bases of upper notopodial ligules in anterior region. Notopodia with two ligules, upper one gradually increasing in size, becoming greatly enlarged, oval, scalelike, with minute dorsal cirri inserted terminally in middle and posterior parapodia. Neuropodia with setigerous lobe and lower ligule. Ventral cirri short, tapered. Notosetae [homogomph?] spinigers only. Neurosetae homogomph [?] and heterogomph spinigers and heterogomph falcigers with rather long blades. Pharynx with paired jaws, without paragnaths or papillae." [details]

Etymology Not stated by the author. The name is composed by the generic name Nereis preceded by the Latin prefix lepto-, meaning 'thin', 'fine', or 'slender', and according to Hartman (1945: 22) it refers to the expanded dorsal lobes of the atokous parapodia: "The phrase 'branchiis superioribus corporis medii et posterioris permagnis' refers to the very greatly expanded dorsal lobe ot atokous parapodia (Plate 3, Fig. 5), for which the generic name was coined." [details]
