Elytra numerous pairs, on segments 2, 4, 5, 7, alternate segments to 23, 26, 29, 32, 33, 35, alternate segments to end of body (may be some irregularity in posterior region). Elytra very small, smooth, leaving middorsum and parapodia uncovered. Prostomium bilobed, subtriangular anteriorly, with or without distinct cephalic peaks, with 2 palps and 3 antennae. Ceratophore of median antenna in anterior notch; ceratophores of lateral antennae distinct, inserted ventrally. Tentacular segment (I) with 2 pairs tentacular cirri, with single seta; with conical facial tubercle. Buccal segment (II) with long ventral buccal cirri; without nuchal fold. Parapodia subbiramous. Notopodia small, conical; notosetae short, stout (not as stout as neurosetae), tapering to blunt tips. Neuropodia with longer rounded presetal lobes bearing subaciciilar digitiform processes and shorter rounded postsetal lobes; neurosetae stout, with faint spinous regions, and slightly hooked, entire tips. Dorsal cirri with cylindrical cirrophores, bulbous basally. Dorsal tubercles inconspicuous. Ventral cirri tapering. Nephridial papillae short, bulbous." [details]
