Description

Complete specimens 10-19 mm long, 0.8-1.3 mm wide with 8 thoracic chaetigers and 42-61 abdominal chaetigers. Radiolar crown with 13-16 pairs of radioles. Radioles with subdistal eyes in most radioles, spherical. Those from dorsal-most radioles are the largest (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 A-C1), then gradually decreasing their size towards lateral and some ventral radioles (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 A-B). Ventral-most radioles with ocular spots (lacking ommatidia) (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 C2). Dorsal margins of collar fused to faecal groove. A triangular keel present, projecting ventrally between dorsal lips (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 E). Dorsal pockets present (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 E). Length of thoracic tori is the same in all segments and not contacting the lateral margins of ventral shields (Fig. 9 View Figure 9 D).

Taxon discussion

Widely reported in the Gulf of California and Nayarit ( Tovar-Hernández and Carrera-Parra 2011), this worm has been found being parasitised by Gastrodelphys dalesi   , a cyclopoid copepod attached to the radioles, the inner base of the radiolar crown, dorsal lips and attached to the dorsal pockets of collar ( Gómez and Tovar-Hernández 2008). A full description and illustrations are available in the revision by Tovar-Hernández and Carrera-Parra (2011).
