Original Description

Cephalis subspherical, with a stout prismatic horn twice the length, bearing three denticulate edges. The uppermost part of the thorax is supported by three diverging, radial beams arising from the deep collar stricture. Thorax wide, conical, nearly twice as long as broad, with slightly convex, thorny outlines; its delicate network is composed of very irregular, polygonal meshes of different sizes, separated by stronger bars, and of numerous very small polygonal pores separated by very thin bars inside the former. The central capsule of the figured specimen exhibited in the upper third of the thorax four large club-shaped lobes, which arose from a very small sphere enclosed in the cephalis and containing the nucleus.

Cephalis 0.02 long, 0.03 broad; thorax 0.4 long, 0.3 broad. [dimensions in mm]
