Ventral interradius covered by slightly smaller scales, but similar to those on dorsal surface (Fig. 5b). Oral shields diamond-shaped (Fig. 5c). Adoral shields broadened laterally, almost united medially. Two elongated and broadened oral papillae on each side of jaw angle (Fig. 5c). Infradental papillae rectangular and robust. Dorsal arm plate broader than long, with proximal margin rounded and distal margin almost straight (Fig. 5d). Ventral arm plates pentagonal (Fig. 5e). Three to four elongate and blunt arm spines, the second or third with hyaline denticles on tip (Fig. 5f). Two perpendicular tentacle scales, inner scale slightly larger than outer.
