Diagnosis [ San Martin (2005) & Agudao & San Martin (2008) ] Body small, meiofaunal, surface smooth. Prostomium with three antennae; usually four eyes, sometimes also with two eye spots. Palps well developed, completely fused to each other or with terminal notch. Single pair of minute tentacular cirri. Dorsal cirri usually small, papilliform to oval, present on all segments or absent on chaetiger 2 in adults of some species. Compound chaetae with heterogomph articulations, falcigers all similar in shape and blade length, sometimes pseudospinigers with simple shaft tips, blades relatively similar to falcigers but longer. Dorsal simple chaetae similar throughout body, tips unidentate or bidentate, with both teeth similar. Ventral simple chaetae on posterior parapodia. Two usually long anal cirri present. Pharynx with anterior margin surrounded by soft lobes, with anterior tooth. Mature females carrying eggs ventrally, developing to embryos and juveniles, lacking capillary notochaetae (natatory chaetae); mature males with long natatory chaetae; some species viviparous

Status Parexogone raised from subgenus to genus by Böggemann & Westheide (2004), because (p.433) of differences from Exogone in heterogomph falcigers and supra-acicular simple chaetae plus "a different reproductive mode" (mode unstated but in Aguado et al (2008) stated that females carry progeny ventrally with some species viviparous.)
