From editor or global species database
Classification Hesionides and Microphthalmus (Microphthalminae) are interstitial animals traditionally placed in Hesionidae. However, as noted by Rouse & Pleijel (2003) and others, morphological and molecular studies indicate they lie outside, with uncertain position within Nereidiformia [details]

Diagnosis Diagnosis emended (Salazar-Vallejo et al 2019). Body small, delicate, rarely longer than five mm. Prostomium with 0_2 eyes. Antennae filiform. Palps filiform, sometimes missing. Tentacular cirri usually on 2_3 distinct segments. Dorsal cirri thin, smooth, thread-shaped. Parapodia biramous or subbiramous, lateral, rarely directed ventrally or dorsally. Pygidium transformed into an anal membrane, with angular or lobate anal cirri. No jaws. Free-living, rarely symbiotic with sand dollars, polychaetes or sipunculans.  [details]

Status Microphthalminae was raised to family level by Salazar-Vallejo et al (2019) [details]
