by monotypy and original designation
accepted valid name
- Systematics: This genus belongs to the group of blue-green genera, with the dorsal setae wide and lanceolate, the same shape as the cerarian setae. It is close to Hypogeococcus, but has numerous trilocular pores and the anal lobe cerarii are on distinct sclarotized areas. It also resembles Ventrispina, but all ventral median setae are slender, as compared to the conical to lanceolate setae in Ventrispina.
- General Remarks: Good definition and characters given by Williams (1985).
