Original description: (Translated from French) Biconvex test formed by three trochospiral whorls. More convex in the spiral side than in the umbilical side. Eight to nine chambers in the last whorl. Chambers of the last whorl having roughly same size. Chamber increase in size is moderatly lobate. Umbilical sutures are radial with an accessory aperture located in the narrow umbilicus. The primary aperture is interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical.

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Rotalipora klausi

Emended description: (according to Gonzalez Donoso et al. 2006 This species is larger and with an higher trochospire than Pseudothalmanninella ticinensis. Although the umbilical sutures are depressed, there are periumbilical ridges (not represented in the drawing of Klaus, but clearly visible in the figured specimen, i.e., the holotype of P. klausi, as observed recently by us).
