Taxonomy Incertae sedis pending type examination (if available). Borda et al (2012:315) state "Amphinome longosetosa Horst 1886; with its distinctive swimming capillary chaetae, is based on a single adult specimen that is probably a sexually mature swimming stage of Amphinome rostrata". However, note that Horst had two specimens, one 200 mm and one 100 mm. At this large size both must be adult. Also note the chaetae are unusually feathered, not the simple long capillaries usually found in reproductive forms that become swimmers. Borda et al do not state whether the specimens are known to be lost.  [details]
