McLeay says: „Cleistotoma oculis magnis, testâ laevi haud pilosâ lateribus integris nec granulosis nec postice divergentibus, manibus brevibus; pedum pari tertio longiori, femoribus infra laevibus.

Krauss adds no further information and Stebbing states: „I do not know whether McLeay's species has been since recognised.,, The material, collected by Dr Brongersma and Dr Engel in South Africa, contains 33 specimens of a Cleistostoma species, collected at Knysna, probably Cleistostoma edwardsii McLeay.
Gordon (1931, Journ. Linn. Soc. London, vol. 37, p. 550) gives a figure of the ♂ pleopods of Paracleistostoma leachi (Audouin). The pleopods of our species differ from these and from those of the two other species (depressum de Man and cristatum (Ortmann)) figured by Gordon.
