W. L. Crepet and K. C. Nixon 1989Fruits as Parvobalanus (arc small with an apical perigon and inferior ovary, elongate-rounded, triangular in lateral and triangular in cross section with wings at the angles) but generally wider (8.4 mm ave. width x 10.5 mm ave. length). Style and stigma morphology are not as well preserved as in Parvobalanus, but presumed to be similar based on partially preserved styles.
