(6-articul.), clavata laevis, capitulo parvo subgloboso inermi integerrimo. Artic. II primo angustior cum 3 sequentibus sensim dilatatis, latior quam longus. Artic. VI urceolato-ovatus. 4 medii articuli cellularum parvarum series transversas 2-4 gerunt. Artic. VI in anteriore parte minorum cellularum series transversas 5, in posteriore parte valde increscentes ibique sparsas gerit. In observato specimine postica pars non integra videbatur.
