C. E. Resser 1936Eyeless trilobite, oval in outline. Glabella tapered, with several sets of short, recurved furrows ; extends nearly to the anterior furrow. Deep marginal furrow extends all around the cephalon, being interrupted only at the genal angles. Two short diverging furrows cross the preglabellar area, joining the dorsal with the marginal furrow, thus making a distinct lobe anterior to the glabella. Eye ridges faint.
Thorax of 15 segments, with blunt tips. Pygidium fused, transverse
