External morphology

25 mm x 21.5 mm. Small processes on outside of oral hooks.

Several specimens of this occlupanid have been observed so far. One white and two pale blue were found in our collection from unknown biomes. A small colony of red specimens we recently spotted locally attached to plastic mesh bags of moldy oranges. It is most similar to Unidentia wrightae, but with an oral groove not matched by any other Haplognathid yet observed. U. oblongoris’ oral groove is both deeper and less tapered than that of U. wrightae and among Haplognathidae is only smaller than that of the mighty Megavegivendus gigas. Discovered and described by occlupanologist C. Huning of DWORC.
