Original Description
The subelliptical closely coiled test is composed of four to six chambers which are inflated and increase gradually in size as added. They are longer than broad and slightly separated peripherally, especially in the last ontogenetic stages where they become somewhat bulbose. The sutures are sigmoidal, distinct, and fairly depressed. Spines, mostly broken off, are long and hollow, and always situated below the anterior sutures. The aperture is an arched tripartite slit with broad lateral projections extending into the umbilicus. The surface is smooth and the walls are finely perforate

Size: Maximum diameter without spines: 0.4 - 0.7 mm. (holotype .54 mm.). Length of spines: ┬▒ 0.2 mm. (holotype 0.18 mm.)
