Pharynx unbewaffnet, vorstülpbar. Borsten an den in einfacher Längsreihe angeordneten Parapodien einfach; am Mittel- und Hinterkörper auch einfache Haken.

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The name of the genus Pseudexogone is composed by the Greek prefix pseudo-, meaning 'false' or 'fake', and the name of the genus Exogone Örsted, 1845, and refers to the superficial resemblance of the new genus with Exogone: ''Sylliden-artiger Wurm, an Exogone erinnernd'' (Augener, 1922: 191). [details]
