Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Hartman (1947: 437-438): "The thorax and abdomen are not distinctly separable in external view. The thorax consists of 14 or 15 segments, the peristomium or first segment is achaetous and apodous. The second segment has notopodia only; the third to fourteenth segments are provided with fascicles of pointed setae in both notopodia and neuropodia; the fifteenth segment has pointed setae dorsally and long-handled hooks ventrally; thereafter at least to the fifteenth segment parapodia have only long-handled hooks in both rami of parapodia or the superior part of the fifteenth notopodium may continue to have a few pointed setae accompanied by a ridge of hooks. Lateral organs are present on all known segments, located between notopodia and neuropodia; on the thorax they are retractile, on the abdomen they are stationary, papillae. Nephridial apertures are visible on posterior thoracic segments; they have not been located on abdominal segments. The proboscis has coarse papillae on its proximal half and is smooth distally. Abdominal hooks are hooded; the beak has a major fang with a crest of 3 teeth. [details]
