Cephalis cap-shaped, with an oblique, slender, conical horn of twice the length, and small circular pores. Thorax with three slight almost obliterated ribs and three vaulted sides between them, with irregular roundish pores. The three ribs are distinct in the proximal, not in the distal part. Peristome with a double coronal of smaller squarish pores and numerous divergent spines; the larger spines are irregularly branched and as long as the diameter of the cephalis.
