Dear All,

Today at work I was keying out a very small (usually under 5mm) 
polynoid. I had keyed it before as Tenonia priops, but thought I would 
take another look at it (I am going to eventually re-confirm all of my 
id's). It still, mounted under high power, keyed out to Tenonia. The key 
feature is "Neurosetae the same thickness as Notosetae". But one thing I 
did notice is that the borders of the elytra had long, papillated 
tubercules. Is this typical of Tenonia? This feature is noted in the 
next couplet, had I chosen choice two. I would greatly appreciate a 
quick short description of Tenonia, if someone has such a thing.
                                            Thank you- Aaron
