External morphology

Secondary circular aboral vesicle 10mm diameter. Body size 35mm x 22mm.

The unique secondary vesicle distinguishes this occlupanid from other archignaths, indeed most occlupanids. Only the bizarre U. vaportubis shares its morphology. It was also discovered clutched on bags of dryer vent tubes.
