Distinguishing features: Small (holotype 3.3 µm), with wide central plate with multiple perforations.


Morphology: "A small species of Calculites, comprising a narrow rim enclosing a multiperforate plate (six perforations, two larger ones situated at each end of the lith and four smaller ones arranged around the outsides of the middle of the plate). The plate goes dark upon rotation. Differentiation: The new species is smaller than most Calculites species and has symmetrically-distributed perforations around the central plate, which distinguishes it from other species." [Lees 2007]

Size: Holotype dimensions: L = 3.30μm, 2.20μm.
