Original Description
Translated from French. Test slightly convex or flat dorsally, very strongly convex ventrally. Chambers very rounded in the lower part of the test. On the dorsal side, the chambers of the internal whorls are semicircular in shape, but become roughly trapezoidal in the last whorl. The test displays a circular outline, the chamber sutures of the last whorl meeting the periphery at a well-marked angle. Profile- Slightly concave or flat dorsally, strongly convex ventrally.
Keel- On the dorsal side the test is bordered by a beaded keel at the beginning of the external whorl, becoming plain in the younger chambers. The beaded ornamentation is stronger along the spiral sutures. The first spiral suture is not clearly perceptible, the central part of the dorsal side being filled with pustules bigger in size than the beads. The keel appears to be broader on the dorsal side than in profile view, its axial projection being a continuous slightly undulated line.
Chambers: 1) The shape of the chambers of the internal whorls quite differs from the shape of the chambers of the external whorl. In the penultimate whorl, the shape is rather semicircular becoming trapezoidal, with a large convex base and an opposite concave base. This particular shape is not always conspicuous in each peripheral chamber; nevertheless, some display it quite well. The outline of the dorsal side is circular not lobate. 2) Shape of the chambers of the last whorl on the ventral side: roughly elliptical in shape, being separated by radial sutures or convex in a frontward direction, shaping grooves between the convex chambers. The inflated surface of these chambers is covered with small pustules lined up along the sutures or around the edge of the umbilicus. The last chamber and the one before are often devoid of this ornamentation. 3) Shape of the chambers in profile view: In profile view, the shape of the chambers is totally similar to that of the Globotruncana lugeoni type; their lower part having the shape of an acorn, their dorsal part being flat and bordered by a keel. The axial projection of the keel is a continuous, slightly undulated line.
Umbilicus: Broad, hexagonal in shape, the convex sides being directed toward the center. The edge of the umbilicus is produced by a periumbilical thickening of the test. This umbilical edge is bounded by pustules on one side and by this epigenetic filling on the other side. The umbilicus is deep, his depth being equal to the height of the shell. Its diameter is more or less half the size of the test diameter.
Axial section. The axial section displays the exact shape of the profile of the test (dorsal side flat, ventral side more convex than a half- circle), the thickness of the test- which is rather reduced- and its internal structure. The chambers become more and more elongate along an axial, inside- outside direction. The chambers of the internal whorls are single-keeled.

Dimensions: Number of whorls: three (the initial whorl being less noticeable). Number of chambers in the last whorls: six to seven.
