Status Polynoinae and Arctonoinae II sensu Wehe, 2006. Further to previous status note, Wehe, 2006 (following Barnich & Fiege, 2001, 2003) explains that the subfamily characters used by Hanley (1989) are variable and do not allow unambiguous subfamily classification of all genera. Following Wehe, 2006, Hololepidella, Malmgreniella, Paradyte, and Subadyte (originally placed in Arctonoinae by Hanley, 1989) are here placed in Polynoinae while Australaugeneria and Gastrolepidia are retained in the Arctonoinae. Definition and membership of Polynoinae and Arctonoinae is unstable and can be expected to change. [details]

Status Polynoinae and Arctonoinae I sensu Barnich & Fiege, 2001. In the context of discussion of Malmgreniella, Barnich & Fiege (2001:1121) were doubtful that all genera placed by Hanley in Arctonoinae belonged in the group, and suggested that a revision of the different genera grouped within the Arctonoinae and Polynoinae should be undertaken based on type material. Hanley had included Adyte Saint-Joseph, 1899; Paradyte Pettibone, 1969; Subadyte Pettibone, 1969; Pottsiscalisetosus Pettibone, 1969; Australaugeneria Pettibone, 1969; Hololepidella Pettibone, 1969, Neohololepidella Pettibone, 1969; Parahololepidella Pettibone, 1969; Minisculisquama Pettibone, I983; Disconatis Hanley and Burke, 1988.

Diagnosis Hanley (1989) gave a long diagnosis (below) without indicating defining character states which presumably centre on his earlier comments that in arctonoid antenna "... the ceratophores derive terminally or slightly ventrally from the prostomium and converge in the midline on the underside of the prostomium, represented by the genus Arctonoe. " Barnich & Fiege (2001) picked out also that tentaculophores were without chaetae, and parapodia sub-biramous with neuropodia deeply notched dorsally and ventrally.

Full diagnosis: "Body usually elongated, with numerous segments. Elytra usually numerous pairs on segments 2, 4, 5, 7, then variable in arrangement. Prostomium bilobed, with three antennae, paired palps, and two pairs of eyes, on the posterior half of the prostomium. Anterior lobes of prostomium rounded, with or without small peaks; median antenna with large ceratophore in anterior notch; lateral antennae with distinct ceratophores inserted terminoventrally or ventrally, converging midventrally. Tentacular (first) segment not visible dorsally, tentaculophores lateral to prostomium, with acicula, achaetous, with two pairs of dorsal and ventral tentacular cirri resembling antennae. Second or buccal segment with or without nuchal lobe, with first pair of elytra, subbiramous parapodia, with ventral buccal cirri longer than following ventral cirri. Parapodia subbiramous, notopodia small, subconical, sometimes vestigial, on anterodorsal side of larger neuropodia, with notoacicula, notosetae usually few in number or absent; neuropodia deeply notched dorsally and ventrally, with rounded to pointed presetal lobes and shorter, rounded, postsetal lobes. Neurosetae relatively few, variable. Dorsal cirri on non-elytragerous segments, with cylindrical cirrophores posterodorsal to notopodia and distal styles; dorsal tubercles usually inconspicuous. Pygidium usually with pair of anal cirri. Pharynx usually with 9-11 pairs of papillae and 2 pairs of jaws. Often commensal."  [details]
