From editor or global species database
Diagnosis A species of Micropedina with compound ambulacral plates composed of three included simple elements. Except for few
compound ambulcaral plates (in each half ambulacrum) close to the apical disc and close to the peristome, the pore pairs are arranged in slightly oblique triads, in which the adoral pore pair is located away from the adradial suture and the adapical one is the closest to that suture. [details]
