Identification
Branched projection ("spine") usually more than 5 times as long as wide, each branch with a single terminal seta.

Differs from a parascolus in being proportionally longer (parascoli typically 2-3 times longer than wide) and bearing setae rather than chalazae.

Differs from a sentus in being branched and bearing setae only at the tips of the branches.
