Parapodia of first chaetiger reduced, lacking notopodial postchaetal lobe and with small neuropodial postchaetal lobe. Subsequent parapodia larger, well-developed with rounded noto- and neuropodial postchaetal lobes. Posterior notopodial lobes connected by low dorsal ridge. All notopodial chaetae capillary. Posterior neuropodia with long-shafted, multidentate hooded hooks, with complete hood. Sabre chaetae present. Pygidium morphology uncertain, possibly rounded with pair of small anal cirri." (Aguirrezabalaga & Ceberio, 2005: 276-277) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The generic name is composed by the root Spio, from the name of the type genus of the family Spionidae, Spio Fabricius, 1785, and the Latin noun galea, meaning 'helmet', and refers to the presence of chitinous plates surrounding the prostomium, with the appearance of a helmet.  [details]
