Diagnosis "Prostomium small, bilobed anteriorly, the lobes produced to form antennae; proboscis without paragnaths; no eyes; parapodia without ventral ligules or dorsal rami, tip retractile." (Johnson, 1903: 213).  [details]

Etymology The generic name Lycastoides is formed by the name of the genus Lycastis Savigny, 1822 followed by the Latin suffix -oides, meaning 'in the form of' or 'resembling', and seems to make reference to the similarity of the new genus with what was considered to be the genus Lycastis sensu Audouin & Milne-Edwards, 1833.  [details]

Type designation According to article 68.2.1. of the ICZN, "The expressions "gen. n., sp. n.", "new genus and species", or an equivalent, applied before 1931 to only one of two or more new nominal species originally included in a new nominal genus or subgenus, are deemed to be an original designation if no other type species was explicitly designated." This way, Lycastoides alticola Johnson, 1903 is the type of the genus Lycastoides by original designation. [details]
