“Nine sharp points”

The Novenocentridae is currently described from two species. They are considered by occlupanologists to be a newly developed taxon, only because it is inconceivable that such a terrifyingly huge occlupanid could have evaded notice for any length of time. With a thick integument of nearly 2mm, they are a sight to behold. Novenocentrids are identified primarily from the large oral groove fringed with either nine sharp dential processes, or a large oral groove fringed with eight flower petals, depending on how one feels that day.
