- Neonotomastus glabrus Fauchald, 1972: 245, Pl. 50, figs a–c.
Baja California Sur, Colorado Point, San Jose Island Stn. 11792 [25°20'00"N, 109°58'30"W], 405 m, November 24 1967.
Holotype (LACM AHF POLY 1027).
México:Baja California Sur and Jalisco in abyssal depths (Fauchald 1972).
Fauchald (1972) described Neonotomastus, including the species Neonotomastus glabrus, but in his description of the genus he mentioned that the thorax had 10 segments with capillary chaetae. When examining the type material we found 11 thoracic segments with capillary chaetae. We consider this genus as valid. It is characterized by thoracic segments with capillaries, by the presence of a unirramous first chaetiger, a first abdominal chaetiger with notopodial capillary chaetae and the presence of neuropodial capillary chaetae and hooded hooks, the presence of capillary chaetae and hooded hooks in the notopodium and hooded hooks only in the neuropodium in the second abdominal segment.
