Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Amended generic diagnosis (Sato & Nakashima, 2003): Eversible proboscis with conical paragnaths on both maxillary and oral rings. Four pairs of tentacular cirri; parapodia biramous except for the first 2 chaetigers. Notochaetae homogomph spinigers. Neurochaetae homogomph spinigers with or without heterogomph spinigers, and heterogomph falcigers with or without homogomph falcigers. One or a few thick simple chaetae present in the supra-acicular fascicle in posterior neuropodia[details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy "Species of Hediste are recognized by the presence of a large and stout fused falciger in the dorsal fascicle in the posterior neuropodia. Species of Simplisetia have similar fused falcigers, but differ from Hediste in lacking oral ring paragnaths." [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Erected at genus rank originally solely for Nereis diversicolor Müller [details]
