Diagnosis Medium sized sculptured temnopleurids with strongly crenulate tubercles, the adoral margins of the bosses of which are scalloped. The sculpture is confined to a few elongate granules toward the centres of the adoral plates, and also on the plates of the apical system. Bare median areas extending below the ambitus are present in the ambulacra and interambulacra, and adapically the tuberculation of the interambulacra is confined to the central portion of the plates. The auricles are united above the ambulacra, and the gill slits are poorly defined.  [details]

Etymology The genus is named for Professor Ralph Tate, whose contributions to Australian Tertiary palaeontology prior to the turn of the century did much to elucidate the character of the whole fauna. [details]
