Taxonomic information across the Internet

Spionidae

Tube builders with an elongate body. The prostomium may be blunt, have frontal horns or be pointed. A pair of long grooved palps are present (although these are easily lost during collection/processing) and occasionally an occipital tentacle may occur. Parapodia are biramous and contain simple capillaries and hooded hooks. Dorsal digitate branchae are usually present on a variable number of segments.
