This genus differs from all other in the tribes Doryctini and Hecabolini by the presence of four distinct spines on the propodeum and having the neck of pronotum divided in two parts by a distinct submedian constriction . Echinodoryctes differs from Doryctopambolus (an other genus with spines on propodeum) by the micropterous wings, the propodeum globose and mostly smooth, the hind coxa with basoventral tubercle/tooth and all the femora with dorsal protuberances/blisters .
