Miers, 1884

The concave margin of each frontal lobe gives the front a quadrilobed aspect. The carapace is not much longer than broad and is subcircular in outline; groups of relatively coarse granules delineate several of the dorsal regions: 1M, the anterior margin of 2M, the neighbouring regions of the antero-lateral margins and the cardiac region. (Davie 1996)
