In members of this genus there are 5 prostomial appendages (antennae + palps) and one pair of tentacular cirri on the peristomial segment. Branchiae commence on 5, continue for the remainder of the body and have a maximum of 8 filaments each but 3 short filaments by about chaetiger 50. Maxilla II has 5 teeth. The separation of the two peristomial rinks is distinct on all sides (unlike Eunice antennata). Recorded up to 15 cm, probably grows longer.
These worms are muscular, active, long-lived carnivores.
Estuaries, embayments, continental shelf, sand, mud and weed beds, to depth of 80 m.
