Its stomatal cavity consists of an anterior buccal chamber and 2 toothed posterior pockets. In females, vagina short and well muscled. Male with complete spicular apparatus showing 6 precloacal supplements, the 4 anterior ones bigger than the 2 posterior. Distance between S3 and S4 especially marked. Spicula thin and slightly curved. Gubernaculum delicate. Tail with subterminal seta. The springs in which the species is found also show marked physical and chemical characteristics.
