Original description: Spiral side flattened to gently convex; periphery lobulate chambers increasing rapidly in size; nepionic chambers spherical; later chambers becoming markedly ovate and highly compressed; early chambers coarsely spirose; last 2-3 chambers smooth, often a modified hemispherical shape with a sharp dorsal keel which appears to be radial, hyaline, perforate; sutures depressed, radial, slightly curved on both spiral and umbilical sides; aperture interiomarginal; appears to be a low arch, extraumbilical in position; large umbilical flaps extend into a broad umbilicus from each chamber.

Plot of occurrence data:

Dec 2017 - Plotting of Neptune data has been re-enabled on the Mesozoic pages following revision of the age-models in Neptune. The data is, however, still very sparse for the Early Cretaceous
