Original description: Test wall microperforate, pores randomly scattered, wall surface finely pustulose. Test moderate in size, low trochospiral, equatorial periphery rounded, equatorial outline weakly lobate, test thickness:diameter ratio averaging 0.56; chambers globular, increasing moderately in size, ultimate:penultimate chamber ratio averaging 1.0, antepenultimate:ultimate chamber ratio averaging 1.16, relatively tightly coiled dextrally or sinistrally in 2 whorls with 11 to 12 chambers in adult specimens, 4.5 to 5 chambers in the final whorl; sutures moderately depressed, radial on umbilical and spiral sides; umbilicus narrow, comprising 11 to 16% of the test diameter; aperture a low arch that extends from the umbilicus 1/2 to 3/4 of the distance toward the peripheral margin, bordered by a narrow lip that thickens toward the umbilicus.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within T. primula zone (107.39-111.84Ma, top in Albian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]

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
