Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis From Preiede et al. (2012): "Two thirds of the width of the collar is accounted for by a pair of gradually tapering lateral lips, each three times longer than its anterior/
posterior dimension basally. A conical nuchal protuberance projects dorsally from the anterior dorsal ridge of the collar on either side of the midline." [details]
