Diagnosis: Animals about 2–3 mm long, with a general body form resembling a smoothing iron. Visible eyes absent. Two types of zoochlorellae present, small round ones and long ones. Male copulatory organ probably of the duplex-type IIIA. The area where the vasa deferentia enter the seminal vesicle is ciliated. Female genital system of the TYPHLOPS   - type.
