Fasciculi setarum capillarium a segmento quarto, h. e. tertio branchifero, incipientes in 17 segmentis. Setae capillares apice paulo curvato attenuato anguste limbatae. Tori uncinigeri a segmento secundo setigero incipientes, pone ultimum segmentum setigerum in pinnulas uncinigeras apice rotundatas mutati, per totum corpus obvii. Pinnulae uncinigerae deorsum vergentes per latera ventris plani decurrentes. Uncini pectiniformes 5-dentati, dentibus validis curvatis acuminatis, uniseriales, in segmento uncinigero septimo et novem sequentibus autem biseriales. Scuta ventralia antice conspicua.[details]
