Oral ring, conical paragnaths: Area V, present or absent; VI, present or absent, smooth bars present; VIĪVIII, present. Dorsal notopodial ligule similar in size in anterior and posterior chaetigers, or markedly elongate on posterior chaetigers. Prechaetal notopodial lobe present or absent, smaller than dorsal notopodial ligule on anterior chaetigers, usually reduced or absent posteriorly. Dorsal cirrus basally or mid-dorsally to subterminally attached to dorsal notopodial ligule on posterior chaetigers, lacking basal cirrophore. Neuropodia with postchaetal lobe (absent or present), acicular ligule and ventral ligule. Notoaciculae absent from chaetigers 1 and 2. Notochaetae: homogomph spinigers.
