Short description

The large and stout body is covered uniformly with fine pits, which are marks of the attachment of small lanceolate scales. The rostrum is usually shorter than the carapace. The branchiostegal spine is small, supported by a very small carina. A distinct dorsal carina is present on the second to sixth abdominal somites. The carinae of the third to sixth somites ends in large teeth. The telson bears 3 pairs of dorsolateral spines.
