  1. Valves nearly linear, sides nearly parallel
  2. Apices capitate
  3. Stauros shaped like a bow tie
  4. Proximal raphe ends straight and weakly expanded

Valves are linear-elliptic to linear-lanceolate with nearly parallel sides and abruptly protracted and distinctly capitate apices. The stauros is relatively broad and shaped like a bow tie. The axial area is narrow and linear. The proximal raphe ends are straight and weakly expanded.
