indentifying feature. Lip region rounded, not twisted as frequently

visible pores. Spear 10u long with dorsal side extended much
farther than ventral with very short aperture. Guiding ring narrow,
refractive. Esophagus with posterior enlargement about 21/2 body
widths long and 1/3 body width. Cardia conoid. Intestine with
rather large, dark refractive granules, especially in anterior portion.
Prerectum length 4-5 times body width, rectum much longer than anal body
diameter. Vulva with muscular labia. Vagina extending about
halfway across body. Uterine branches acting as elongate spermathecae,
often packed with great numbers of sperms. Ovaries reflexed 1/3 distance
to vulva. Males numerous, their tails usually bent dorsally.
