Diagnosis: MPs with similar sizes and acicular lobe with a (slender) projection. Bidentate and hooded HO, PA in different positions (except HOL, without PA) in first parapodium; PA varying in position in other MP; HOL more robust than others HO. Pectinate chaetae slightly asymmetrical, with 17–26 teeth. Inner callus of MI at an obtuse angle to its above portion. MIId without a convex curvature projected backwards. MIV not compressed laterally; inner arch of MIVd less pronounced; internal base of MIVd straight and thick.

Size: Holotype 220 mm long, 9 mm wide, 185 chaetigers, incomplete. Paratype series 23 to 80 mm long, 2 to 7 mm large, 37 to 113 chaetigers, all incomplete. One specimen (ZUEC 2974), number 27, complete, 75 mm long, 3 mm wide, 215 chaetigers. Widest specimen 175 mm long, 8 mm wide, 113 chaetigers.

Jaw apparatus ( Fig. 11): Colour light beige to dark brown; sclerotized plates darker, almost black in some specimens. Shaft of mandibles darker than maxillae. Calcareous cover white to yellowish. Inner callus of MI at an obtuse angle to its above portion (arrow). MI three times longer than plate of maxillary carrier (free portion of carrier sclerotized plate not included in measure). Prominent and generally blunt teeth of MII to MIV; the basal one, of MII and MIII, rounded. Right MII slightly larger than left one. Attachment lamella of MIII triangle shaped. Left MIV shorter than right MIV, being this one external base larger than internal base; inner arch of right MIV weakly pronounced. Internal base of right MIV almost straight. Both MIV with an inner callus near internal base and attachment lamella covering almost all outer edge. Rounded outer lateral edge of MV and‘L’-shaped inner edge. Maxillary formula: MI = 1 + 1, MII = 7 + 7–8, MIII = 7–8, MIV = 4–5 + 5–6, MV = 1 + 1. Mandibles (without calcareous cover) as long as MI + plate of maxillary carrier (without free portion of carrier sclerotized plate). Calcareous cover well developed, hard, well tied to cutting plate, projecting 1.5 times beyond base of inner cutting plate. Description based on paratype series .

Occurrence: Intertidal: States of Rio Grande do Norte (Natal, Ponta Negra Beach), Paraíba (João Pessoa, Pontas dos Seixos), Bahia (Tinharé Island, Morro de São Paulo, Gamboa and Third Beach), Espírito Santo (Aracruz, Coqueiral Beach). Intertidal to 5.3 m depth: São Paulo State (Ubatuba and Caraguatatuba cities).

Etymology: The name is given in honour of Marina Minucci Steiner, sister of Victoria Minucci Steiner and niece of Tatiana M. Steiner, one of the authors of this species.
