Pores equal in size, occasionally larger on the cephalis; branches of the cephalic spines rectangular or occasionally confluent. Length without spines 8O µ. Maximum width 47 µ. Length of spine 31 µ, cephalis 47 µ. Approximately 3 separate pores in 23 µ. An elegant species. (Translated from Latin by E.M.R. and W.R.R.)]
