Original Description
Test small, almost planispiral; chambers globular in all stages, usually nearly spherical, in last whorl possessing from one to three long, distal, tubular extensions sometimes more than twice the length of the diameter of the globose part of the chamber. If only one tube occurs it lies in the median plane, if two they lie one on either side of this plane, and if three occur one is median and the others paired beside it. The tubes join the bulbous chamber quite abruptly with very little flaring. There are usually three chambers in the last whorl though occasionally four.
