Horns (when present): Of equal length to one another; more than half the length of the capsule, but never longer than capsule.
Lateral keels: Relatively deep compared to other eggcase species, up to 10mm deep (when intact).
Fields: Present at both ends of capsule. Deep.
Characteristic features: Extremely deep lateral keels (when intact). A relatively fat and ‘square’ capsule when compared to other species of eggcase.
Similar Eggcases: Blonde Ray (Raja brachyura) and Spotted Ray (Raja montagui).
