Diagnosis according to Fernandez and Khosla (in press): Spherical eggs 140-200 mm in diameter; nodes ornamentation, eggshell 1.0-1.70 mm thick; average node diameter about 0.60 mm; fanshaped spheroliths distinct or even partially fused; height/width ratio 2.32:1; pore subcircular to elliptical; swollen-ended, variably spaced basal caps (0.2-0.3 mm in diameter).
