Tube-living bristle worm with a cylindrical body up to 100 mm long. The head features a crown of six short, branched and membraneous gills. The segments number 30 and differ in length. The flexible tube of cemented sand grains and shell fragments is longer than the worm itself. The worm is able to withdraw from the end protruding from the sediment surface, which subsequently bends down.
