Diagnosis in Südkamp, 2011: "The large, bowl-shaped cup is composed of three low infrabasals and two uninterrupted circlets of large, five-sided basals and radials. The angustary radial facets are horseshoe-shaped. The basals and radials have a striated surface sculpture (hexagonal concentric lines). The uniserial arms branch isotomously on primibrach three normally and heterotomously higher in the crown. The secundi- and tertibrachs have thorn-shaped plates aborally. The circular xenomorphic stem lacks a radix."
