( Figs. 11 View FIGURES 1 – 12 , 70–73 View FIGURES 61 – 72 View FIGURES 73 – 81 ; Tab. 2 View TABLE 2 )

Eggs spherical; light green prior to embryonic development; operculum broadly round and convex; chorion translucent and granulated ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 1 – 12 ). The eclosion line is not evident under SM, and the AMPs are circularly arranged in a row around the anterior pole, slightly displaced posteriorly, translucent, short, and clubbed ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 1 – 12 ). The chorion surface is granulated under SEM, with perfectly circular projections evenly distributed ( Figs. 70, 72 View FIGURES 61 – 72 ). Although the egg may be described as spherical, the posterior pole is flatter than the anterior pole and bears traces of the adhesive material secreted by the female to glue the eggs to the substrate ( Fig. 70 View FIGURES 61 – 72 ). The operculum is similarly sculptured ( Fig. 71 View FIGURES 61 – 72 ), and the eclosion line is present as a narrow strip very near the AMPs, with smaller granules placed closer to each other ( Fig. 72 View FIGURES 61 – 72 ). Except for the eclosion line, the surface of the egg is remarkably uniform. The AMPs are very small, club-shaped, with circular and apical openings ( Figs. 72 View FIGURES 61 – 72 , 73 View FIGURES 73 – 81 ). Under higher magnification, the surface of the processes is slightly spongy ( Fig. 73 View FIGURES 73 – 81 ).
