Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Emended diagnosis by Salazar-Vallejo et al. (2007: 473): ''Body cylindrical. No cephalic hood. Body papillae reduced, lateral papillae elongate, cirriform. Body covered by a thick tunic adhering foreign particles. Without notochaetae. Neurochaetae compound neurohooks, with outer chaetal cortex with successive bands of denticles. Branchiae two pairs in segments 1–2. Nephridial lobes not observed. Benthic forms.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology Not stated. The name of the genus is composed by the Latin noun flabell, designating a 'small hand fan' and referring to the family Flabelligeridae Saint-Joseph, 1894, in which the genus was originally placed, and the Latin noun seta, meaning bristle. Presumably the name refers to the fact that it was the single genus in the family lacking notochaetae.  [details]
