Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis "Body elongate, arenicoliform. Prostomium T-shaped with lateral horns. Peristomium achaetous, surrounding prostomium dorsally and forming upper and lower lips of mouth ventrally. Parapodia of posterior segments with dorsal and ventral cirri; interramal papillae present; postsetal lamellae absent. Branchiae absent. Setae include capillaries, lyrate setae, and sometimes few inconspicuous spinous setae among capillaries of setigers 1‒2, blunt, pointed, or bifurcated, representing homologues of lyrate setae; large conspicuous spines absent. Pygidium with long anal cirri." (Blake, 2015: 74).  [details]
