Flabelligeridae

provided by wikipedia EN

Flabelligeridae is a family of polychaete worms, known as the 'cage worms', notable for their cephalic cage: the chaetae of the first chaetigers form a fan-like arrangement surrounding the eversible head.[1]

Mazopherusa is a possible fossil example from the Carboniferous; other fossil material is only dubiously assigned to the family.[1]
