Uropodal basis about as long as broad, inner distal angle rounded, unarmed, hardly extending beyond narrowly rounded pleotelsonic apex. Body with broadly rounded median raised area on pleotelson and Vth to VIIth pereional segments, becoming a double, more defined ridge on perieonal segments I to IV.
