Sicula short (about 1.8 mm long) and slender conical, suspended by means of a delicate nema, which attains four times the length of the sicula and has not been observed in grown specimens, from a chitinous disk that in diameter approximately equals the length of the sicula pl.2, fig.1. Primary thecae ("funicle") growing in direction of the sicula, rhabdosome hence apparently beginning with four or more branches. Rhabdosome attaining a diameter of 40 mm, consisting of numerous (upward of 40) branches of the last order.

Branches of six orders observed; the bifurcation of the first branches takes...
