Original description: The test consists of about two whorls of chambers. 4½ chambers in the first whorl and 4 in the final whorl. The spiral side is almost flat; the umbilical side is more convex and has a narrow, deep umbilicus which is in breadth equal to about 1/8th of the test diameter. The chambers become reniform and depressed with growth, to become about half as high as long when seen on the spiral side. The aperture is a narrow slit, umbilical to extraumbilical, nearly but not quite reaching the periphery of the previous whorl, and is furnished with a porticus which is broadest at its umbilical end. The surface of the test is smooth and nonmuricate: it is uniformly microperforate, the microperforations being about 0.6 mu m in diameter but often broadened at their outer ends (through test erosion) to about 1.5 µm. "Test erosion (fig. 1b) also shows how the perforations are the external openings of canaliculi, which have erosion-resistant granular walls (analogous to those of benthic rotalines as described by Banner and Williams, 1978. Early stages of test surface dissolution (fig. 2b) also reveal the sutural margins between adjacent canalicular walls (compare Banner and Williams, 1978, pl. 2).
