Diagnosis Moore's diagnosis is short but he identifies three characters for his genus: "The body is much elongated; anteriorly elytra and dorsal cirri alternate in the usual manner, but in the middle and posterior region all segments bear elytra only; a large free nuchal plate overlaps the prostomium dorsally." [details]
