Prechaetal notopodial lobe present. Dorsal cirrus length about 2 times ventral notopodial ligule at chaetiger 10-20. Neuropodial postchaetal lobe present, at least on some anterior chaetigers. Ventral neuropodial ligule on posterior chaetigers reduced, up to half length of acicular neuropodial ligule. Ventral cirri paired. Commencing chaetiger 1.
