Original description: Shape of test.- Early stage possibly very slightly trochospiral (usually not recognizable) later becoming planispiral, stellate. Wall. - Calcareus, finely perforate. Chambers.- Early chambers globular to subglobular, becoming more and more elongated; the five chambers of the last whorl each with a bulb-shaped extension (often broken off). Sutures.- Radial, depressed. Aperture.- An interiormarginal, equatorial arch, bordered by a lip; in position often slightly asymmetrical to the equatorial plane.

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
