Depth range Deep-sea context derived from a specimen depth data search [details]

Diagnosis Paramytha with 20 thoracic and up to 12 abdominal chaetigers [details]

Etymology authors: "From Latin ossicola, living in/on bone; gender feminine". However, -cola (-dweller) names are compound nouns, usually masculine, recommended not declined to agree with the first noun or the genus. Os (bone) is a neuter noun. [details]

Habitat reported as living on bone, but "most likely a deposit feeder exploiting the organic enrichment that results from the carcass decomposition, but possibly also the enhanced flow conditions on the bones. Further research is necessary to understand whether P.ossicola sp. nov. bores into the bone" [details]

Type locality Setúbal Canyon, off Portugal, northeastern Atlantic, 38.2808°, -9.1113°, 1000 m [details]
