Etymology Not stated. The specific epithet arenaceodentata is composed by the Latin word arenaceo, form of the adjective arenaceus and meaning 'sandy' or 'covered with sand', and the Latin adjective dentata (masculine: dentatus), meaning 'toothed' or 'having teeth'. It refers presumably to the disposition and appearance of the paragnaths on the areas V-VIII of the basal ring of the proboscis, described as follows: ''All of the areas of the basal ring have united into a continuous zone somewhat narrower on the dorsum, covered thickly and uniformly with small, grainlike, bluntly conical, horny papillae'' (Moore, 1903: 722). [details]

Taxonomy Moved to different genus.

Habitat Mussel beds just below low water. [details]

Specimen Holotype (ANSP 1076) and possible paratype (ANSP 1075 plus ANSP slide 4.3, with parapodia) deposited at the Academy of Natural Sciences (ANSP), Philadelphia, USA. [details]

Taxonomy Moved to different genus. [details]

Type locality Woods Hole, flat between Devils Foot and Ram Island, Massachusetts, Atlantic coast of the USA (gazetteer estimate 41.5222, -70.6809), mussel beds just below low water. [details]
