Original description: Thorax pronouncedly inflated-conical, and lumbar stricture distinct. Pores aligned strictly longitudinally on both thorax and abdomen, those of the abdomen somewhat larger than those of the thorax, separated by longitudinal ridges. Abdomen tapers distally to a mouth at least as narrow as that in the specimen illustrated by Riedel and Sanfilippo (1970, pl.12, fig.5). Abdomen in some specimens short, as if compressed, narrowing abruptly rather than tapering distally. The poreless peristome bears a variable number of short triangular teeth, rather than three spathulate feet
Remarks on original description: The pronouncedly inflated thorax, with pores aligned longitudinally and separated by longitudinal ridges is rather constant. The abdomen, however, is quite variable in length and in the degree of inflation, but always tapering to a constricted aperture. The thoracic pore rows, separated by longitudinal ridges, continue in the abdomen, but are variably expressed depending on the degree of inflation of the abdomen. Sometimes additional pore rows are inserted and thus Podocyrtis (Podocyrtoges) dorus
the longitudinal alignment is offset. Maximum width of the abdomen usually medianly, but varies from proximally to distally. (Sanfilippo, unpublished)[comment from RadWorld database]
