Original Description
Cephalis large, campanulate, trilobed, with irregular, roundish pores, numerous spines, and a large pyramidal horn on the top, which is connected by three constricted arches with the base of the horizontal collar beams. From the latter arise as centrifugal prolongations three stout, curved, primary ribs of the flatly vaulted thorax, and each of these gives off at the base two opposite, lateral, secondary ribs. These nine ribs are spiny, and connected by irregular, arachnoidal network.

Cephalis 50µm long, 70µm broad; thorax 80µm long, 180µm broad.
