BMIL197, (2); BMIL498, (4); BMPL197, (3); BMIL197, (7); BMIL297, (5); BMIL498, (2); all specimens associated with Chondrila nucula, 1–2 m depth.
Length to 2.3 mm, width to 0.12 mm. Body small, slender; complete specimens with up to 33 chaetigers. Subulate antennae with enlarged median zone and long distal one. Median antenna longer than lateral ones. Prostomium with a pair of eyespots and two posterior pairs of eyes in trapezoidal arrangement. Compound unidentate falcigers with serrated blades (Fig. 1.18) and with smooth blades 1.19). In each parapodium one bidentate compound falciger with long basal serrations (Fig. 1.20). Slender, unidentate dorsal simple chaeta with slight serrations, from chaetiger 1–2. Ventral simple chaeta unidentate, only present on posterior chaetigers. Acicula subdistally enlarged with pointed tip (Fig. 1.21). Pharynx extending through 3 chaetigers, with dorsal rhomboidal tooth located near anterior margin; proventriculus through 3–4 chaetigers with 16–18 rows of muscle cells. Pygidium with a pair of cirriform anal cirri.
Salvatoria limbata is considered cosmopolitan, although San Martín (2003) pointed out that it could be restricted to the Northwestern Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean.
