Diagnosis: Cuticle abnormally inflated with fixation. Posterior
ventrosublateral oesophageal glands overlap intestine, or intestine anteriorly
partly overlaps oesophageal bulb, or both types of overlaps occur.
Dorsal oesophageal gland nucleus usually near beginning of oesophageal
enlargement. Female reproductive sustem amphidelphic. Lateral
body pores near vulva absent. Spermatheca present of absent.
Vaginal sclerotisation weakly developed. Males lie straight with
fixation. Caudal alae present. Copulatory muscles not extending
anterior to caudal alae. Spicules straight to arcuate, regularly
tapering, transversely striated. Suspensor muscles not prominent.
Two ventromedian supplements within caudal alae region, well separated
from anterior third supplement, which is often reduced. As an exception,
only one supplement may also be present. One or two pairs of large
post-cloacal ventrosub-median papillae present. Lateral cervical
pores, if present, at or close to level of excretory pore but not near
base of onchiostyle. Ventromedian cervical pores rarely more than
