Original Description
Test comprising two to three whorls coiled in a low trochospire, partially evolute and concave on spiral side with six chambers in the last whorl, inflated, subglobular (h/L=1 approx.). The first chambers in the last whorl, when seen on the spiral side, are slightly longer than high, but as high as long in the last three chambers. The dorsal side is flat to concave. The umbilicus is small (u/uh=0.3 approx.) and deep and the aperture is a narrow slit. Perforation cones have not been found on this species.
