|Classification and/or Status||
Supposedly differs from Gualtieria in having the peripetalous fasciole passing through the petals close to their end rather than at mid-length, and in lacking the strong tubercles on the basicoronal interambulacral plates surrounding the mouth. The distinction between the two seems very slight.
