Remarks. A small (5 mm disc diameter) example, but showing the adult characteristics of a disc covering of closely set domed tubercles, with larger ones on the radial shields ( Fig. 6F, HView FIGURE 6). The girdle bands on the arms begin at the disc edge ( Fig. 6IView FIGURE 6), and the girdle hooklets have the typical single secondary hooklet. There is a single madreporite at the disc edge orally.
