Original protologue

Pollen cone with numerous microsporophylls arranged helically on delicate axis. Each peltate microsporophyll consists of narrow and well-developed
triangular distal lamina. Epidermis consists of elongate cells. Pollen sacs numerous (about 5–8), very elongate containing nonsaccate pollen of Araucariacites-type. Pollen sacs free for most of their length, partially fused in basal parts at the place of attachment to the microsporophyll. Inaperturate pollen grains with psilate to slightly scabrid ornamentation.

Etymology

The epithet hispanicus is derived from Spain, the country where the specimens were collected.
