Diagnosis: the original description is “Animal à têt brun-bleuâtre, encroûté et comme recouvert de petits grains de sable, ovoïde, plus ou moins allongé ou raccourci; expansions filiformes très longues.” (= Animal test brown-bluish, encrusted and covered with small sand grains, ovoid, more or less elongated, with very long filipods)
