Original description: "Test very low trochospiral, nearly planispiral in appearance, much compressed; equatorial periphery strongly lobate; axial periphery rounded. Wall finely perforate, delicately hispid. Chambers five, occasionally six, in final whorl, increasing rather rapidly in size, moderately inflated, ovate, elongate in direction of coiling compressed ovate in axial view. Sutures depressed and gently curved on spiral side, depressed and radial on umbilical side. Aperture a low arch, interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical, bordered by a thin lip; apertures of previously formed chambers open into the umbilicus. Greatest diameter of holotype 0.20 mm., greatest thickness 0.10 mm. Unfigured paratypes range from 0.15 to 0.24 mm. in maximum diameter, from 0.07 to 0.12 mm. in maximum thickness. Greatest diameter of figured paratype 0.26 mm., greatest thickness 0.10 mm. "

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
