Hide encfs file-systems from being show in file manager. I tried using 99-hide-disks

I have an encrypted folder with encfs that are automatically mounted in my Documents folder. So that it's always showed in nautilus.

I guess I should simply change the mount point such as /mnt/whatever, so before giving up I'm searching if someone of you could know if there is a way to achieve hide the encfs volume from nautilus.

I tried adding this line to /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hide-disks.rules without result:
SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="fuse.encfs"

In fact I don't want any fuse filesystem be showed in nautilus. Do you know what filesystem I should type after "ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="?

mount | grep fuse
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw,relatime)
encfs on /home/miku/Texts/Documents type fuse.encfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=1000,default_permissions)

Aditional information:
uname -a
Linux debian 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.35-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thanks in advance
