Tetreres Caullery, 1913

Tetreres Kirtley, 1994: 188 . Capa et al., 2012: 269 View Cited Treatment .

Type species. Hermella varians Treadwell, 1901 , designation by Kirtley, 1994.

Type locality: Mayagüez Harbour , Puerto Rico .

Diagnosis. Characterised by the arrangement of the inner paleae in a short ventral line on each inner margin of the opercular lobes. Nuchal hooks are large and with broadened shafts, unique among sabellariids.

Remarks. This genus currently contains ten species plus the one described in this paper, with most known from deep water (188–4825 m). Traditional diagnostic characters of these species, based almost entirely on paleal and nuchal hook characters (as in Kirtley, 1994) are listed in Table 5.
