Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Day (1963: 403): 'Prostomium with three ovoid frontal antennae. Palps small, ventral, partially fused. Pharynx straight without obvious teeth. Proventriculus poorly developed. A single pair of small tentacular cirri. Dorsal cirri ovoid. Ventral cirri absent (fused to setigerous lobe). Setae compound anteriorly but simple posteriorly.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Diagnosis by Fukuda et al. (2016: 291): ''Elongate, relatively large bodies, with numerous segments. Palps short, ovate, ventrally bent. Prostomium rounded, with 4 eyes in trapezoidal arrangement, and 3 short antennae. Peristomium with one pair of cirri. Dorsal cirri throughout short, rounded to ovate; ventral cirri apparently fused to parapodial lobes. Compound chaetae as falcigers only; some chaetae secondarily simple, due to loss of blades and enlargement of tip of shafts. Pharynx slightly sinuous posteriorly; proventricle shorter than pharynx, barrel-shaped. Pharyngeal armature not well known. Reproduction unknown.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The name of the genus refers to the resemblance of the type species to a very long Exogone.  [details]
