The genus is characterized by specialized collar chaetae, absence of sickle chaetae, a bulbous operculum; P. pavimentata has a pavement-like ornamentation on the operculum. This is the first record of this genus from Japan although another species of Pseudochitinopoma are known from the northeast Pacific.
