Description

This species is relatively small and has short, bluntly rounded arms. The aboral surface is covered in small overlapping plates, with six longitudinal rows or papulae along each radius. Fringe spines occur along the body margin, which are joined into distinct clusters. The specimen figured from Belize was green when collected (has bleached due to preservation in alcohol) typical of larger specimens, with smaller members being yellow or orangey-red.
