Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Head acute, conical, mouth beneath. Body terete, composed of numerous similar segments, without any marked division into distinct regions. The upper fascicles on all the segments contain slender, acute, bent setae, usually mingled with some of different forms anteriorly. The lower fascicles contain shorter, mostly simple setae anteriorly, and bidentate uncini farther back.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy The species Areniella filiformis Verrill, 1874, the type species of the genus, was considered by Hartman (1947: 427) as being a junior synonym of Heteromastus filiformis (Claparède, 1864). For this reason, the genus Areniella is considered to be a junior synonym of Heteromastus.  [details]
