|C. G. Barras 2007||Stem group Atelostomata with a clearly disjunct apical disc containing a small number of complemental plates (Fig. 2C). The complemental plates preclude the direct contact of oculars II and IV. The periproct lies at the posterior of the test in a slight depression, the remnant of a periproctal groove (Pl. 2, fig. 1c). The genus retains the primitive short phyllodes (Fig. 10G) and the peristome lies in a slight depression (Pl. 2, fig. 1b).|
