From editor or global species database
Authority Alongside other well-accepted scaleworm families Kinberg (1856) included the family Iphionea [note spelling] for new genus Iphione for I. ovata n.sp. and I. muricata, formerly Eumolpe muricata. In her thorough review of the nomenclatural history Pettibone (1986:5) preferred to assign Baird (1865) as author of the family, on the sound basis that he first used Iphionidae with the 'idae' standard form of family name. However, Kinberg had recognised the taxon as a family-level group, and the code does not exclude early variant family name spellings based on the type genus. [details]

Classification Raised from previous subfamily status (Iphioninae) within Polynoidae by Norlinder et al. (2012) [details]

Diagnosis According to Gonzalez et al (2017 - edited quote) Iphionidae is distinct in morphology among Aphroditiformia for the "presence of stacked/feathered notochaetae. Additional characters included the loss of a median antenna and the presence of areolae or lattice-like structures on the elytra". Molecular results place these iphionid genera alongside Pholoe-group, and separated from polynoids and sigalionids [details]
