Taxonomy Fitzhugh (1989) explains that Hartman (1969) established Sabellonga (and the family Sabellongidae) on the basis of the presumed presence of spioniform palps on the "prostomium." based on "palp scars". However, Hartman probably misinterpreted ventral lips or sacs for palp scars. The genus remains unique for large, falcate notopodial spines in the last five abdominal setigers, but is known only from the single original specimen. [details]
