Vertex in dorsal view short and narrow, a little longer than wide, about 1/3 of its total length projecting beyond the anterior margin of eyes, posterior compartments as long as anterior one, with shallow depressed areas marked on both sides, lateral margin ridged and slightly elevated above eye; submedian carinae arising near anterior margin of the eyes, near to lateral carinae, meeting shortly before the fastigium, delimiting a very shallow, small sub-apical areola continued into a simple nonfurcatedmedian carina; angle of vertex to frons: ca 85-90[degrees].
