Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment The species seems to be a member of the family Hesionidae Grube, 1850.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet clavigera, is a Latin adjective, inflection of claviger, formed by clava ('club' or 'cudgel') and gero ('carry' or 'bear'), meaning 'club-bearing', and makes reference to the club-shaped dorsal cirri that the species bears.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat On stones.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIdentification According to Nygren (2004: 199), "there is nothing in the description that connects M. clavigera to Autolytinae. Ventral cirri is present, and chaetal types are not found in Autolytinae."  [details]
