Small, spherical to subspherical, autophragmal, peridinioid cysts densely covered with short, solid, evexate, hair-like processes expanded proximally and often tangled distally. Archeopyle large, mesoepicystal, with ventral extension (tab) into the archeopyle, probably representing paraplate 1′ and/or preapical plates. Dorsal margin of archeopyle suture smooth or angular and sometimes suggesting a bipesoidal, hexa-style of tabulation.
