Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Støp-Bowitz (1948: 36-37): ''Body long with numerous segments. Prostomium reaching beyond the eyes. Two pair of lateral antennae and one median tentacle. Two globular eyes, comparatively small to be those of an Alciopid. Proboscis cylindrical with equal papillae round the opening; no long, cirriform papillae. Four (or three?) pair of tentacular cirri. Dorsal and ventral parapodial cirri long, ribbon-shaped (or cylindrical?). Pedal lobes with a short, papilla-shaped terminal appendage and long, protruding acicula. Two sorts of bristles, both capillary: 1. long, compound ones, and 2. shorter, simple ones. Small segmental glands. Large nephridial papillae. One anal cirrus.'' [details]
