Nuchal organs with two pairs of ciliary bands, continue as metameric double-paired ciliary bands (=metameric dorsal ciliated organs) between transversal ciliated bands of consecutive segments. Branchiae present from chaetiger 1. Large glandular organs present in chaetigers of the middle body region (chaetigers 5- 10). Neuropodial hooded hooks with pair of apical teeth present in posterior chaetigers." [details]
