dc.description.abstract [eng] Long-bodied sphaerodorids (Annelida, Sphaerodoridae) is the common name for members of the three closely and morphologically homogenous currently accepted genera of benthic marine bristle worms: Ephesiella, Ephesiopsis and Sphaerodorum. Members of this group share the presence of two dorsal and longitudinal rows of macrotubercles with terminal papillae, and two longitudinal rows of microtubercles, features that are unique among sphaerodorids. Genera are distinguished by the chaetae morphology. Members of Ephesiella are characterised by having compound chaetae (except, sometimes, simple chaetae in the first chaetigers), Sphaerodorum bear only simple chaetae, and Ephesiopsis have both compound and simple chaetae in all parapodia.
