Cephalic cage chaetae short, covered by a thick tunic, chaetae barely exposed or not exposed at all. Notopodia lateral, displaced laterally in series; neuropodia ventrolateral. Notochaetae very long, mostly uncovered by tunic, articles restricted to short, distal region; neurohooks multiarticulated or anchylosed, crest entire. Free-living."
