Enantia clarissa 

( Plate 7 View Figure , Fig. 11).

The egg is 1281.4 µm long and 487.9 µm wide; it is 2.63 times longer than wide; the width/length ratio is 3/8. The maximum diameter is at the equator; there is a slight thinning and formation of the neck from the first basal fifth (Nh= 10). The egg is elongated, obpyriform; the cusp is obtuse and rounded, a little less wide than the base that is somewhat convex with grid patterns; the neck is well-defined and is slightly long and thin. They have 33 to 37 ribs (mode = 37);>coincident and alternating between the axes, the straight lines predominate because the curved ones are restricted to the base and are diagonal in the apical area. The intercostal spaces are of constant amplitude and are reduced toward the base where the ribs curve slightly (almost 2 times wider than long). The axes are straight, a little thicker than the ribs and of constant thickness. At the equator, there are 14 to 16 straight axes (LoA = 7 to 8 and ShA = 7 to 8). The ShA are separated from the perimicropylar area by 1 to 5 ribs (mode = 3). The grid is of somewhat wide rectangles that reduce its amplitude toward the base, becoming subsquare on the neck. They have a conspicuous roughness texture with staining. The egg is asymmetrical or with bilateral or radial symmetries.
