We have been struggling with a specimen and your advice would be
greatly appreciated on the following clues for a sand-dwelling polychaete in
-Parapodia are uniramous
-Two types of setae present (and only one per fascicle): a straight,
tridentate seta with two small teeth that form a crest over the larger
tooth, and a straight, smooth acicular seta.
-Parapodia with a short, swollen dorsal cirrus.
-Head rounded and not longer than wide
-Pharynx muscular, without "pineapple" markings of the typical syllid
If it is a syllid, Fauchald's Pink book key gets us to Augener's
_Haplosyllides_ reported from the West Indies because it appears to lack
palps. Once again, any assistance in this matter would be helpful.
