Original description: Spines three-sided prismatic, straight, or in the basal half slightly curved, verticillate; each spine with six to eight three-branched regular verticils, tapering gradually towards the distal end. All branches of each spine lie parallel in three equidistant meridian planes, and are connected by delicate parallel threads, perpendicular to the branches. Therefore the skeleton consists of four pine-shaped trees and twelve delicate triangular wings with rectangular meshes.

Length of the spines 0.25 to 0.3, of the basal branches 0.1 to 0.15.
