He also highlighted potentially significant anatomical similarities including a peduncle posterior to the right eyestalk (distinct from the subocular tentacle) and hooded rachidian teeth in the radula, but pointed out that these may be plesiomorphic character states.

Rachidian with trigonal cusp and well-developed hood; base of cusp with weak transverse ridge; cutting edge coarsely dentate, central denticle largest, lanceolate and with 3 or 4 smaller denticles on each side.
Rachidian with broad, trigonal cusp, well-developed hood, and a distinct transverse basal ridge; cutting edge with a slender, acuminate central denticle and 2 or 3 progressively smaller, similarly shaped denticles on each side.
Radula possessing rachidian tooth; outer lateral teeth conspicuously larger than marginal teeth; inner marginal teeth small but not vestigial.
Rachidian about two-thirds length of innermost lateral; cusp broadly acuminate, slightly longer than its base-plate.
