Fasciculi setarum capillarium a segmento buccali incipientes in 13 segmentis obvii, uncinis et toris uncinigeris omnino destitutis. Setae capillares lineares apice attenuato paulo curvato haud limbatae. Pinnulae minutae uncinigerae a segmento quatuordecimo, h. e. primo pone segmentum ultimum setigerum, incipientes, usque ad extremum corporis obvii. Uncini minimi hamati uniseriales vertice conspicue unidentato. Scuta ventralia distincta per paria disposita, unum utrinque in ventre segmentorum c. 8—10 setigerorum.[details]
