Original description: Test trochoid: lobulate peripherally. Chambers spherical. nearly as elongate as wide: about four or five in last whorl, rapidly increasing in size. Coiling predominantly dextral; sutures depressed, radial. straight to slightly curved spirally and umbilically. Umbilicus medium-sized and deep covered by tegilla with intralaminal and infralaminal accessory apertures in well-preserved specimens. Periphery occasionally with weakly developed double keel which occurs chiefly on the first one or two chambers of the final whorl. but usually keel-less with or without an imperforate peripheral band: nontruncate. Test surface either smooth throughout or somewhat rugose on the earlier chambers; last two or three chambers usually smooth irregardless of previous ornamentation. Primary aperture interiomarginal, umbilical in position. Outer wall except for rugosities, keels, and imperforate peripheraI band. raclial hyaline, perforate: rugosities ultragranular hyaline. imperforate; keels radial hyaline and ultragrnnular hyaline. imperforate; peripheral band radial hyaline imperforate.

Plot of occurrence data:

Dec 2017 - Plotting of Neptune data has been re-enabled on the Mesozoic pages following revision of the age-models in Neptune. The data is, however, still very sparse for the Early Cretaceous
