Original Description
Test plano-convex, dorsally slightly elevated, rotaliform. Dorsally with 2 visible whorls, the first being small and much obscured by supplementary shell growth. The last whorl has about 7 chambers, separated by limbated sutures, which have a roughened surface and are for most part raised, but not always clearly demarcated from the finely perforate chamber surface. Border subacute, sometimes slightly lobulate, with a narrow, deeply depressed sutures. At the center is a narrow deep umbilicus, sometimes partly filled with secondary growth, which may hide part of the aperture, which is an elongate slit extending from the umbilicus to near the periphery and situated at the base of the last chamber.

Size: Average diameter 0.6 mm.
