  1. Habitus
    Body brownish, with eyes.

  2. Cuticle
    Cuticle cuticle covered with numerous tiny, shallow and rounded depressions (pseudopores). Under PCM pseudopores are visible as light spots with blurry edges. Two cephalic papillae positioned laterally.

  3. Buccal apparatus
    Six peribuccal papillae (ventral papilla smallest) and six peribuccal lamellae (of equal size) around the mouth opening. Buccal tube funnel-shaped, wider anteriorly (on average the posterior diameter is 73% of the anterior diameter). Pharyngeal bulb elongated, pear-shaped and without placoids or septulum.

  4. Legs and claws
    Claws of the Milnesium type, slender. Primary branches on all legs with small accessory points on the top of the branch. Secondary claws of all legs with rounded basal thickenings (lunules) (sometimes barely visible). Claw configuration: [2-3]-[2-2]. Single, long transverse, cuticular bars under claws IIII present.

  5. Eggs
    Oval, smooth, deposited in exuvia.

  6. Remarks
    None.
