Original description: Low to medium height trochospiral test, macroperforate wall; oval to circular outline, asymmetrical lateral profile with convex spiral side and slightly concave umbilical side; pinched margin; equatorial periphery at the beginning of the last whorl with randomly distributed pustules in primitive specimens; advanced specimens show two alignments of pustules separated by a relatively narrow imperforate peripheral band; four to five chambers in the last whorl. Spiral side with globular chambers in the inner whorl and petaloid to crescentic chambers moderately to rapidly increasing in size in the last whorl; chamber surface pustulose and slightly inflated; sutures curved, raised and marked by alignments of pustules in the inner whorl, weakly raised to depressed in the final whorl. Umbilical side with globular chambers; chamber surface inflated and pustulose; sutures straight and depressed. Primary aperture extraumbilicaleumbilical, umbilical area rather small about 1/4 of the maximum diameter.
