Morphology remarks: From the original description - "The central area is nearly filled by at least four platelike elements that are interrupted in the center by a pore. The central elements are discernible under the light microscope and form a distinctive extinct ion pattern"

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): in mid part of UC5a subzone (50% up, 94.3Ma, in Cenomanian stage). Data source: Burnett 1998, fig. 6.2
First occurrence (base): within Aptian Stage (112.95-126.30Ma, base in Aptian stage). Data source: Burnett 1998
