Original Description

Cephalis very small, hemispherical, hyaline, without pores. Thorax flatly pyramidal, with nine concave, triangular faces and nine little curved, stout, radial beams. Between these are interpolated numerous incomplete secondary beams, which are absent in the apical part of the thorax. The radial beams being connected by numerous (thirty to forty or more) horizontal, ring-like threads, a delicate, arachnoidal network with small, quadrangular pores is produced. Peristome nine-angled, with a peculiar vertical gallery, composed of four horizontal, parallel, nine-angled rings, which are connected by numerous vertical, parallel bars, therefore with three transverse rows of square pores. This peculiar species is very different from the preceding and may represent a separate genus, Craspedilium.
