Morphology remarks:  All plates with or without papillae, ca.12-15 papillae/μm, are radially veined, with veins dichotomously branching and anasto- mosing increasingly toward the margin, forming a wide inner ring of elongate areolae. Plates with radially-arranged papillae between the slit-like areolae, and two concentric rows of papillae on top of a low marginal rim. Small triangular spine covered by papillae usually present at plate centre. [Konno et al. 2007]

Size: Cells 1.9-2.5μm in diameter. Shield plates ca.1.3-1.6μm in diameter. Triradiate girdle plates ca.0.8-1.3μm long (measured along the dorso-ventral plane from end to central structure). Arms of dorsal plate, ca.0.8μm long. Ventral plate ca.1.1-1.8μm in diameter.[Konno et al. 2007]
