Carapace:0.95 times longer than broad. Eyes:AER nearly straight; PER recurved; PME larger than AME, PLE largest, ALE smallest; eye diameters, AME 0.15, ALE 0.03, PME 0.18, PLE 0.30; interdistances AME-PME 0.10, PME-ALE 0.28, ALE-PLE 0.30. PME-PME 1.00. ALE-ALE 1.83; ocular quadrangle AME-AME 0.38, PLE-PLE 1.80. Legs:leg formula 4321 (Muma, 1953); spination not available, legs completely disarticulated.
