Rostral horns subcylindric. Supraorbital eave rather narrow, producing to an acute supraorbital tooth. Hepatic expansion not very wide; hepatic projection more acute than postocular tooth. Surface nearly naked, but some setae are distributed somewhere; distinctly areolated. Regions more or less convex. In the medial line, there are three tubercular prominences, a gastric, a cardiac and an intestinal; the last is the most prominent.
