Original Description
Translation from the Russian.]--Test convex with lobate and angular outline; initial whorls more convex, but protrude very weakly. On the dorsal side the chambers of the initial whorls are spherical and round, rapidly increase in size; granules on the first whorl small, not very distinct, in the later chambers of the second whorl take the form of unclear swellings without tuberculate incrustations; chambers of the last whorl flat, increase in size unevenly, strongly slanted toward the peripheral margin; last chamber often smaller than the two preceding; septal sutures radial, depressed between the chambers of the first whorl and arcuate, with convex tuberculate flanges between the remaining chambers; toward the end of the last whorl both the septal sutures and the dorsal keels become narrower and lose their tubercles. On the ventral, strongly flattened side the chambers are rounded-reniform, strongly inflated, but with flattened vertices; chambers increase in size very little toward the end of the whorl; septal sutures closed by flanges and depressed only between the last chambers; umbilical flanges and ventral keels merge into short ovals of almost equal size, forming a regular rosette pattern on the flattened ends of the chambers on the ventral side. Peripheral margin broad, very strongly inclined toward the ventral side. so that the dorsal keel stands above the ventral one as a distinct cornice, and it can be seen in ventral view that the diameter of the dorsal side is greater than that of the ventral one. The gap between keels is concave, ventral keels and umbilical flanges are broad and tuberculate at first, toward the end of the whorl become flat and compressed; both keels in general parallel.
