(Dana, 1852)

The antero-lateral margins of the carapace have, behind the exorbital angle, 10-11 short and blunt teeth of irregular sizes, resulting in the subdivision of the usual teeth (2 and 3 for example being tricuspid). The surface of the carapace has the regions defined and coarsely punctate. The chelipeds have their supero-external surfaces coarsely reticulated. (Serène, 1984: 182)
