Original Description

Has the four primary spines, D, Lr, Ll and A, as well as the ventral, sagittal one, V. The dorsal, sagittal one, D, is bent strongly downwards. The lateral, basal spines, Lr, and Ll, are also bent downwards, being as usual directed half forwards and half sideways (so as to be ventral lateral). The ventral, sagittal spine is rather thin, almost straight, bent strongly downwards and converges distinctly towards the dorsal, basal spine, D.

The principal difference between this and the previous genus

Plagiacantha] lies in the ventral, sagittal spine.
