Original Description
"Test planispiral, rather tightly coiled, involute, biumbilicate, compressed, subquadrate in equatorial profile; equatorial periphery moderately lobulate; axial periphery rounded. Wall smooth, finely perforate. Six, ocassionally 5, chambers in the ultimate whorl; early chambers increasing evenly in size; last 2 or 3 chambers greatly enlarged in size over the earlier ones; chambers inflated, subspherical to ovoid in shape, moderately embracing; last two generally make up half the test size. Sutures radial, moderately depressed. Test biumbilicate, umbilici small and shallow. Aperture interiomarginal, equatorial, symmetrical, consisting of a low narrow discontinuous lip. In large adult test the ultimate chamber becomes attached at the axial periphery, thus making the primary aperture bipartite. Greatest diameter 0.40 mm.; greatest thickness 0.24 mm.
