Flabelligeridae

Papillated body of relatively few segments although surface may be partially obscured by mucus bound sediment. Prostomium carries eight or more branchial filaments and a pair of grooved palps but tends to be retracted and difficult to observe. Setae of anterior segments may be elongated to form a cephalic cage. Parapodia reduced to no more than 2 bundles of setae in most species. Notopodial setae are simple and often cross barred. Neurosetae either similar to noto- or modified simple or compound hooks
