Female (from 25.09°N, 119.08°E); B-C, habitus (dorsal and lateral, respectively).

- Cephalothorax accounting for 66% of body length.
- Oral papilla midventrally 0.28 mm of the way back along cephalothorax.
- Pair of relatively large ocelli, rounded, pigment cups moderately developed , medially conjoined, intensely pigmented at inner margins only.
- No cuticular ornamentation observed on the remaining surface of the cephalothorax.
- Cephalothorax incorporating 1st thoracic pedigerous somite. 1st thoracic pediderous somite and 3 free succeeding pedigerous somites , each bearing pair of legs. Pedigerous somites 2-4 accounting forv 21.8% of total body length in dorsal view.

Armature element 1 present on segment 1:1d1. Segment 2 with 2d1 and IId. Segment 3 with elements 3: 3d1 and IIId. Segment 4 bearing element 4d1, 4v1-3. Element 5 absent. Last segment with one small aesthetasc on distal margij. 6 (1) and 6 (2) present.
- P5 single lobed, medially separated, each lobe with 1 segment (1.5 times longer than wide). Lobe armed with 3 naked setae, subequal in length and breath.

*: total body length measured from anterior end of head to posterior margin of abdominal somite.
Rem.: New species closely related to Cymbasoma bowmani, species collected by Suarez-Morales & Gasca (1998) in a reef area on the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico). For the authors, another species that merits mentioing is Cymbasoma quintanarooense Suarez-Morales (1994) because it also has P5 with a single lobe armed with 3 setae subequal in length and breath; however, the new species C. cheni can be distinguished by several other characters.
