Day (1967: 44) provided an amended diagnosis of Alentia Malmgren, 1865 "to include Hololepida Moore, 1905" but with no further comment. Subsequent authors (eg Fauchald, 1977; Imajima, 1997) have retained Hololepida and Alentia as valid genera.

Diagnosis Moore's diagnosis is short but he identifies three characters for his genus: "The body is much elongated; anteriorly elytra and dorsal cirri alternate in the usual manner, but in the middle and posterior region all segments bear elytra only; a large free nuchal plate overlaps the prostomium dorsally." [details]
