Editor's comment According to Scarabino (in Steiner & Kabat 2004: 669) a polychaete (thus a Ditrupa), but Fenaux explicitly stated that the specimens were collected living. One would suppose that the living animal would be easily recognised for a scaphopod or polychaete. The tube (Fenaux, fig. 5), as well as its description, indeed are reminiscent of Ditrupa arietina. [details]

Type species Scarabino, 1981, studied the specimens and confirms that belongs to Polychaeta [details]
