From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Fauchald (1992:183) retained this taxon as valid, but it appears to be near indeterminable, at least from the holotype, which is a juvenile anterior fragment, in poor condition, with head dissected, most chaetae broken, posterior branchial distribution unknown (begin c.3).  [details]
