Carapace hexagonal, flattened for its most part of dorsal surface, with ill-defined regions. Front almost transverse, with a small median notch. Inner angle of supraorbital border more or less tuberculated, only slightly protruded forward behind frontal margin. Antero-lateral border strongly divergent, divided into three subequal lobes by two small notches, isolated by a triangular notch from epibranchial tooth which is also somewhat tuberculated and sharply pointed. Chelipeds stout, slightly more than twice the length of carapace. (Takeda, 1989)
