"Test subglobular, the last three chambers making up nearly the whole periphery of the test, early chambers largely concealed by the ornamentation which is greatest over the early chambers; consisting of large projection bosses with a spinose surface, the succeeding chambers covered with a progressively decreasing ornamentation, the last-formed chamber with only a few short slender spines; aperture small, in the slightly open umbilicus of the ventral side. Diameter 0.60 mm."
