Diagnosis Small, regular echinoid with a large apical disc whose plates are not firmly bound to the corona. Ambulacral plating simple and uniform, with every third element bearing a primary tubercle; pore-pairs small and uniserially aligned. Interambulacral plates bear a single large primary tubercle with a small, perforated mamelon and strongly crenulated platform. Teeth trapezoidal in cross-section, incorporating large triangular secondary plates. Spines simple, needle-like and much longer than the diameter of the test. [details]
