Diagnosis Original diagnosis by Hartman (1944: 264): "The thorax consists of 11 segments, including a well-developed, achaetous peristomial ring; segments 2 to 5 have pointed limbate setae only, and segments 6 to 11 have long-handled uncini. The abdomen has numerous segments, provided with long-handled uncini only. It differs from Heteromastus Eisig in having 11, instead of 12, thoracic segments, and in lacking the reticulations on the cuticle; it differs from Capitomastus Eisig in having normal hooks on the last segments and in lacking the heavy, copulatory hooks on the last thoracic segments." [details]
