Original Description
Translated from French. Test calcareous, perforate, planispiral, slightly compressed, symmetrical, the two parallel and slightly evolute sides displaying one and half whorls of the spire. Each side, subcircular in outline, is provided with an umbilical cavity fairly broad and slightly depressed. The chambers, numbering seven for the base of lower Gargasian forms to eight in upper lower Gargasian specimens, are subject to an almost nil increase in size as added , thus, appear to be all the same size, as high as broad, well separated by radial straight sutures and slightly inflated. The first chambers of the last whorl are often rugose and the last chamber may display a more or less noticeable lateral broadening. The symmetrical aperture, located at the base of the last-formed chamber, extends toward each side until meeting the penultimate chamber; the aperture is bordered by a lip, and, besides, one has to take into account the presence of intraumbilical apertures.
