This earthworm is morphologically similar to D. udei; with minute prostatic setae, hastate spermathecal setae, quadrithecate condition, and dorsal vessel single anteriorly. The internal calciferous gland lamellae are free. It differs from udei in the structure of the spermathecae and the structure and arrangement of the male field. en_US
