Original Description
Description. — Test free, planospiral, consisting of about three coils, chambers few, usually about five in the adult coil, laterally compressed, wall finely or coarsely perforate, sutures distinct and depressed, each chamber at least in the adult with a stout peripheral spine with a hollow center, aperture tripartite one arm running along either side of the base of the chamber, the other extending peripherally in the apertural face of the chamber.

Extra details from original publication
In the Tertiary of America there are at least four species and to this genus should be referred Hantken's species [Siderolina kochi]. These are all described below and figures are given of all of them. They seem to mark the Uppermost Eocene in Alabama and elsewhere on our Gulf Coastal Plain and the Mexican species from the Alazan are closely related. Hantken's species is from the Clavulina Szdihoi beds of Hungary.
