Legs well-developed, with tibio-tarsal articulatory sclerosis, metathoracic legs usually largest; claws without a denticle; claw digit ules, slender, knobbed; tarsal digitules knobbed, slightly longer than claw digitules.
Simultaneously inter-endothelial links, digitules which encircled the germs were registered within the endotheliocyte.
Legs well developed; tibio-tarsal articulation with an articulatory sclerosis; claw digitules both broad; claw without a denticle*.

The adult females of this new species of soft scale share character-states with the Eulecaniinae (absence of dorsal tubercles, pocket-like sclerotisations and dorsal tubular ducts; spinose marginal setae, and multilocular disc-pores extending anteriorly onto thorax and head) but the multilocular disc-pores have 7 or fewer loculi, ventral tubular ducts are absent, the legs have an articulatory sclerosis and the claw digitules are broad.
