From editor or global species database
Diagnosis authors: "Members of Telothelepodidae are distinguished by the shape of the elongate, narrow ‘upper lips’ [character 14(0), ie., narrow elongate versus circular]. This is the only synapomorphy presented [...] that is not homoplasious."
In terms of recognising a Telothelepus the distinctive character is a large elongate upper tentacular lobe (cephalic lobe) on the head. The lobe is 'frilly' edged and carries numerous tentacles (see Day 1967:734).
