Ribs diverge in pairs and threes from nodes on the umbilical shoulder and extend radially outward onto the ventro-lateral shoulder, but do not cross the venter. Sides are flat, the venter steeply rounded, with an open bend or median groove running down the middle. Clutches of eggs attributed to this genus have been discovered in the Kimmeridge Clay.
