While this species closely resembles butschlii in the size and form of the body it differs in the low, blunt, rounded labial probolae.  The arrangement of the pharyngeal plates, form of the esophagus and other internal organs.
In Utah this species is found only in the mountatins at elevations of from 8,000 to 12,000 ft which is above the known range of butschlii.  Several specimens were found in foothill soil near the Citrus Experiment Station, Riverside, California.  Also collected in the Poudre River Canyon, Colorado.
