Clypeus straight in front view, vertical in lateral view, high, ALE separated from edge of carapace by their radius or more, median projection absent; setae absent. Chilum absent. Eyes six, well developed, ALE largest, ALE circular, PME squared, PLE circular; posterior eye row straight from both above and front; ALE separated by less than their radius, ALE-PLE touching, PME touching throughout most of their length, PLE-PME touching.
