Lateral lobes on segments 2 and 3, poorly developed. Branchiae, 3 pairs on segments 2 to 4, dichotomously branched. Notopodia from segment 4, continuing for 21 segments; notosetae narrow-winged capillaries, with serrations along one margin, some appearing flail-tipped. Neuropodia beginning on segment 5 (setiger 2) and continuing to pygidium; uncini of anterior thoracic segments typically with posteriorly elongated bases, following uncini lacking elongated bases. Uncini arranged in single rows initially, in double rows from uncinigerous segment 7 to mid abdominal segments, posterior abdominal neuropodia with uncini arranged in single rows.[details]
