Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Pettibone (1971: 31): ''Prostomium subpyriform, with paired frontal antennae, biarticulate palps, and two pairs of eyes. Tentacular segment apodous and achaetous; four pairs of tentacular cirri with distinct cirrophores. Parapodia of first two setigers subbiramous; notopodium represented by dorsal cirrus and single ligule. Dorsal cirri at bases of upper notopodial ligules. Notopodia with two ligules, upper one sometimes fused with dorsal cirri (in posterior notopodia of zebra; from setiger 3 on, in bahamensis). Neuropodia with acicular lobes and lower ligules. Ventral cirri short, tapered. Notosetae homogomph spinigers and, more posteriorly, homogomph falcigers. Neurosetae homogomph and heterogomph spinigers and heterogomph falcigers. Pygidium with paired anal cirri. Pharynx with paired jaws, without paragnaths or papillae (latter present on oral ring in bahamensis).'' [details]
