Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editordescription Prostomium without appendages; palps absent. At least one asetigerous anterior segment present. Proboscis a ventral muscular pad. Parapodia uni- or biramous; all setae simple. Parapodial lobes absent. Members of this order are very small, generally grub-shaped polychaetes that tend to turn up in massculture in aquaria more frequently than in the field (especially true for the ctenodrilids). Specimens of Ctenodrilus also have turned up associated with Flabelliderma commensalis at Santa Catalina Island and have the same dark purple pigmentation on sea urchins as these commensals do. [details]
