Carapace with large antennal, branchiostegal teeth; cervical, lateral, anterior grooves. Teeth on lateral carinae larger than those on rest of carapace. Antennular peduncle short, stout; exceeding scaphocerite. Scaphocerite broad, apex rounded, with small lateral tooth near base. Third maxilliped short, stout, setose, with exopod. Pereopod 1 subchelate, ischium with anteroventral tooth. Pereopod 2 subchelate right pereopod longer than left, both with multi-articulate carpus. Pereopods 3–5 similar, but third dactylus simple, dactyls 4, 5 more flattened. Abdomen with interrupted median dorsal carina along entire length. Abdominal pleura 1 rounded, pleura of somites 2–5 with two ventral teeth each, pleuron of somite 6 with prominent lateral teeth visible from dorsal aspect. Telson longer than uropods. Total length 110 mm.

Color in life. Red ( Faxon 1895).
