Definition: Lip region offset with rounded lips. Body cuticle
fairly coarsely annulated. Spear of variable length, 8-14u, of two
parts, the anterior pointed, the posterior thicker, its lower end hardly
thickened.. Cheilorhabdions forming a short guide-ring around the oral
opening. Procorpus narrow, cylindrical, bulb elongate, spherical
with prominent valves. Oesophageal glands lobe fairly long and prominent.
Excretory pore usually about 2 body-widths behind bulb. Vulva posterior
with a characteristic flap of cuticle covering it; vagina sloping forwards
from the vulva; post-vulval sac long, stretching about halfway to the anus.
Tails of both sexes conoid, the terminus sometimes narrowing suddenly dorsally
being cylindrical for a short distance before ending in the usually 4 (sometimes
?3) stalked and fringed tubercles. Male tail with apparently 3 pairs
of caudal papillae, 1 pre-anal level with the proximal ends of the spicules,
1 adanal and 1 post-anal about halfway down the tail. Testis tip
may be reflexed slightly. Spicules curved with prominent apex, rounded
rostrum and rather wide shaft with typical dorsal and ventral limbs.
The male tail figured by Fuchs is obviously of some other genus.
