Original Description
Shell of about the same form and structure as in the two preceding species, but larger and more robust, and differing in the spiny surface. Length of the two joints = 1: 5, breadth = 1: 4. Here also the lower half of the spherical cephalis is submerged in the ellipsoidal thorax, and from the collar stricture arise three strong, internal, divergent beams. 'The bars of the hexagonal pores are much thicker than in the two preceding species.

Cephalis 0.03 diameter; thorax 0.16 long, 0.12 broad.
