[None. Introduction starts as:]
Orbiniids are moderately large-bodied worms, distinctly divided into two regions. The anterior thoracic region consists of relatively smooth, flattened segments. The long, tapering, abdominal region consists of numerous segments which appear ragged due to the dorsally projecting branchiae and parapodia. The prostomium is smooth, pointed to nearly square in front, without any sensory appendages or palps. Eyes are seldom present. The peristomium is also smooth and generally bears a pair of nuchal organs anterolaterally. The proboscis is unarmed and typically sac-like.
