Description

Body 15 mm long, 1.4 mm wide, radiolar crown 3.2 mm long with 12 pairs of radioles, thorax with eight chaetigers and abdomen with 30 chaetigers. Solitary fan worm from soft bottoms. Branchial crown cone-shaped when it is open. Radioles united by a long palmate membrane that occupies 3/4 of their length (Fig. 11 View Figure 11 A, C). Radioles with broad flanges (Fig. 11 View Figure 11 C). Ventral shield of collar half-circle shaped. Anterior peristomial ring lobe triangular, exposed partially above the collar margin (Fig. 11 View Figure 11 D). Glandular ridge of chaetiger 2 narrow all around, it is whitish in unstained worms or stained with methyl green (Fig. 11 View Figure 11 A-B).
