Thorax nearly spherical, with regular, circular pores, and small conical spines. Abdomen cylindrical, with eighteen stout, parallel, vertical ribs, which are connected by six to eight horizontal, circular rings; therefore regular transverse and longitudinal rows of square or circular pores occur. Mouth truncate, circular.
