Ehlers, 1913 p. 523, pl. xxxix, figs. 1-7.


St. 167. 20. ii. 27. Off Signy Island, South Orkneys. 60° 50' 30" S, 46" 15' 00" W. 244-344 m. Gear N 4-T. Bottom: green mud. Nine specimens.


REMARKS. The largest example measures 34 mm. by 2 mm. The number of chaetigers is 28. The specimens correspond exactly to the description and figures of this species. They have gills on every chaetiger except the 1st and the last four modified chaetigers. The anal cylinder is very faintly and irregularly ringed, and its dorsal peak is much more prominent than the ventral.”
