Opheliidae

Torpedo or grub-shaped with relatively few segments and often a ventral groove. Cirriform branchae usually present above some of the notopodia of the poorly developed parapodia; lateral segmental eyes are sometimes present. The prostomium is pointed and the proboscis unarmed. The pygidium is often elongated and tubular. Setae are simple capillaries throughout.
