Type material Type material NHMUK 19621042-43; 1 holotype + 1 paratype. Holotype size 2,7mm; Paratype 1,2mm. The holotype corresponds exactly to Powell's drawing. The protoconch is missing and the first post-larval whorls appear damaged too. Last half whorl uncoiled; aperture trumpet-shaped.
This species was considered incertae sedis by Bieler & Petit (2011:46), a status here confirmed.
It belongs in Annelida, yet it is as present not clear where it should be positioned. In that respect, the status incertae sedis is here maintained. [details]
