Original Description
"Dorsal side almost completely flattened, with only a slight central elevation, umbilical side strongly convex. The periphery of the test is lobate. On the dorsal side there are in general 3 whorls visible, the chambers of the innermost; whorl appearing indistinct. The sutures of the dorsal side are strongly curved opposite to the direction of coiling. The number of chambers in the last-formed whorl is 7-9; on the umbilical side they are very slightly overlapping, their sutures slightly curved. The sutures of the central whorls of the dorsal side, and in some specimens those of the first 3-4 chambers of the last-formed whorl on the chambers in most specimens show small, irregular rugosities; on tsome specimens the 3-4 last-formed chambers of the test tend to drop below the normal plane of the dorsal side, in such a manner that their upper side is lower than that of the other chambers. Because of the high number of chambers and the relatively high test, the species appear robust. Greatest diameter of the holotype 0.76 mm; greatest thickness 0.40 mm."
