Original Description
Both arms different in size and form; larger arm club-shaped, four times as long as broad, at the distal end three times as broad as at the base, and twice as long as the smaller arm, which resembles a stalked knob, with thin basal peduncle and spherical distal part. Ends of the two arms thorny (with numerous smaller, and three to five larger spines); one very large conical terminal spine on each pole of the main axis.

Radius of the larger arm 300µm, of the smaller 150µm; distal breadth of the former 60µm, of the latter 40µm; basal breath 20µm.

Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Amphibrachium clavula under the subgeneric name Amphibrachura, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.
