Thorne gives an adequate description and illustrations of both males and females of this species. He remarks that this species resembles M. brachyuris but differs in having a longer tail and caudal glands arranged in tandem. Males of this species are rare and have from 10-14 supplementary organs. The tail is similar in form to that of the female. The spicules are strong, accurate, and with rather slender non-bifurcated accessory pieces.
