Diagnosis Apical disc monobasal with 4 gonopores. Petals with equal columns of respiratory podia. Ambulacral plates beyond petals with pores running along the middle. Interambulacrum 5 with 11–12 plates between basicoronal 5 and aboral edge of periproct. Naked zone along oral midline developed and pitted. Phyllodes short and with few occluded plates. Peristome transverse and pentagonal. Bourrelets bulged outwards because of internal depression on the basicoronal plates. Periproct aboral, longitudinal, and narrow. [details]
