From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Comparatively large, sculptured temnopleurids with strongly crenulate tubercles and sharp gill slits. The pore-pairs of the ambulacra are uniserial, and the apical system is dicyclic. Strongly developed radiating sculpture on each plate may be lost during growth. The perignathic girdle consists of styliform auricles not united above the ambulacra. [details]
