There are three pairs of lateral appendages along the margin of the sides, each of them has a ramified apex. "Each ramification of the apex has a rounded base and a long, thin and sharp prolongation. The whole length of each of these appendages is covered by little and acute ramifications."
There is a second type of lateral appendages: thin, long with many small sharp ramifications, and with an unbranched terminal filament. "These appendages are present on the sides of the body, foot, dorsum and oral veil in number 15-17 per side with 6 on the oral veil." The filaments give the body and the appendages a hairy appearance which gives the species its name [peludo = hairy in Spanish].
