Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Pettibone (1971: 19): ''Prostomium subpyriform, with paired frontal antennae, biarticulate palps, and two pairs of eyes. Tentacular segment achaetous and apodous; four pairs of tentacular cirri with distinct cirrophores. Parapodia of first two setigers subbiramous, notopodium represented by dorsal cirrus and single ligule. Dorsal cirri at bases of upper notopodial ligules. Notopodia with two ligules and usually additional presetal lobe in anterior parapodia (inconspicuous in W. glauca). Neuropodia with postsetal lobes and lower ligules; with or without presetal lobes distinct from acicular lobes. Ventral cirri short, tapered. Notosetae homogomph spinigers only. Neurosetae homogomph and heterogomph spinigers and heterogomph falcigers. Pygidium with paired anal cirri. Pharynx with paired jaws, without paragnaths; with papillae on basal or oral ring: large papillae dorsally (area VI) and single row of minute papillae ventrally (areas VII-VIII).'' [details]
