Original Description

Cephalis and thorax nearly of the same form and stricture as in Sethoconus facetus, but larger and wider, with the same delicate, hexagonal network (Pl. 55, fig. 1); it differs from the latter by the wider, more convex and campanulate form, but mainly by the armature of the surface, which is densely covered with thin, arborescent, bristle-shaped spines, irregularly branched, and four to eight times as large as the cephalis.

Cephalis 0.02 diameter, thorax 0.32 long, 0.4 broad. [dimensions in mm]
