SPECIFIC CHARACTERS. A narrow, elongate species with up to about 200 chaetigers. A nuchal papilla is present and the tentacular formula is I + O [aI/aI] + B[aI/aN]. In the first few segments the dorsal cirri are broadly lanceolate, but in the middle and hinder region they are more or less rectangular. The ventral cirrus tapers to a point. The papillae of the proboscis are arranged in 13 rows of which one is mid-dorsal and 12 are lateral. There are about five papillae in the mid-dorsal row and nine or ten in the lateral rows.”
