Original description: Test wall microperforate with randomly scattered pores averaging 0.8 microns in diameter, surface smooth. Test small, low to rarely moderately low trochospiral, equatorial periphery subrounded, moderately to strongly lobate; weakly biconvex; chambers subglobular, usually reniform in equatorial view and a slightly compressed oval shape in edge view, dextrally or sinistrally coiled in two whorls of from 8 to 11 chambers that increase moderately in size, usually with 4, rarely 3 and up to 5.5 chambers in the final whorl; sutures depressed, radial, straight; umbilicus shallow, moderately wide, averaging 24% of the test diameter; aperture an extraumbilical low arch that extends from the equatorial peripheral margin almost to the umbilicus, bordered by a narrow lip that usually broadens to an imperforate portical flap that may partly cover the umbilicus, with relict portici surrounding 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]
First occurrence (base): at base of M. renilaevis zone (0% up, 113.1Ma, in Aptian stage). Data source: zonal marker (from Timescale Creator)

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
