Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Diagnosis by Petersen (2000: 502): ''Fauveliopsids with body relatively short, linear, of similar width throughout, weakly divided into two regions recognizable by features of segments and chaetae. Epithelium smooth, iridescent, mostly without papillae, or papillae minute and inconspicuous except for a few around anus. Segments weakly defined externally; parapodial lobes absent, chaetae emerging from low welts or directly from body wall. Interramal papillae small, mostly sessile and inconspicuous. Chaetae include weakly curved uni- or bidentate (in small specimens) aciculars, sigmoid aciculars and slender, flattened, smooth, pointed chaetae (capillaries). Last segment well developed, similar in size to preceding ones, bilobed in dorsal and ventral views, often with elongated chaetae and a few papillae. Pygidium usually recessed within last chaetiger. Habitat: Appears to be free living.'' [details]
