Diagnosis Emended diagnosis by Hutchings & Glasby (1990: 277): ''Tentacular lobe with numerous buccal tentacles. Lateral lobes on segments 2-4 and sometimes on peristomium. Branchiae, 1-3 pairs on segments 2-4. Notopodia from segment 4, continue for 17 segments; notosetae smooth-tipped, winged capillaries. Neuropodia begin on segment 5 (setiger 2); uncini of anterior thoracic segments typically with posteriorly elongated bases, following uncini lacking elongated bases. Uncini arranged in single rows initially, in double rows from uncinigerous segment 7 to end of thorax, abdominal uncini arranged in single rows.''

Diagnosis of Lavesque et al (2021) "Transverse prostomium attached to dorsal surface of upper lip; basal part as a thick crest, eyespots sometimes present; distal part shelf-like. Buccal tentacles all uniformly cylindrical. Peristomium restricted to lips; upper lip relatively short, hood-like; lower lip swollen, cushion-like and mid-ventral. Segment 1 reduced dorsally, with pair of lobes of variable size and position; segment 2-4 also with pairs of lobes of variable size and position, sometimes extending for a few more segments. Anterior segments highly glandular ventrally, with discrete, smooth to slightly corrugated, rectangular to trapezoidal mid-ventral shields. One, two or three pairs of arborescent, pectinate or plumous branchiae from segment 2, typically two pairs, on segment 2 & 3, less typically a single pair, and rarely 3 pairs. Conical to rectangular notopodia beginning on segment 4, typically extending for 17 segments, until segment 20; notochaetae all distally winged, frequently broadly-winged. Neuropodia beginning on segment 5, as low ridges in conjunction with notopodia and short pinnules posteriorly; neurochaetae as long-handled avicular uncini, at least on anterior neuropodia, frequently until segment 10 or end of notopodia, then short-handled; uncini in partial to completely intercalated double rows on segment 11-22, in a face-to-face arrangement. Nephridial papillae present on segment 3, genital papillae on a variable number of segments, usually on segment 6-7, posterior and dorsal to notopodia. Pygidium smooth to slightly crenulated.  [details]
