Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Emended diagnosis by Nogueira & Hutchings (2007: 12): ''Prostomium at base of upper lip, basal part relatively large, distal part forming thick transverse shelf-like process of uniform width, sometimes expanded to form tongue-like longitudinal process, extending along dorsal side of upper lip. Upper lip narrow and elongate, lower lip expanded. Anterior segments forming raised crests dorsally and laterally. Segment 1 ending laterally to lower lip. Segment 2 ventrally oblique around and below lower lip. From segment 3, segments highly glandular. Two pairs of branchiae on segments 2–3, each pair with simple filaments, progressively tapering to tips. Notopodia beginning from segment 3 and extending for 15 segments, with distally limbate notochaetae on both tiers, those on anterior tier shorter. Neuropodia beginning from segment 12, present as low ridges throughout. Uncini higher than long, with short triangular heel, developed prow and dorsal button closer to tip of prow than base of main fang.'' [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Original diagnosis by Hutchings (1977: 11): "Elongated tentacular lobe, numerous simple unbranched gills on segments 2 and 3. Smooth tipped notosetae from segment 3, 15 pairs. Neuropodial uncini from setiger 10 (segment 12), continue onto abdomen. Uncini short based, with subterminal dorsal button just behind prow. Lateral lobes absent."  [details]
