Original description: "Test free, low trochospiral coil of two and one-half whorls, broadly umbilicate, periphery rounded, peripheral outline lobulate, five to six globular chambers in the final whorl, rarely seven, chambers increasing gradually in size as added; sutures distinct, strongly constricted, radial, straight; wall calcareous, finely perforate, surface coarsely hispid, but spines less prominent on final chambers; primary aperture an interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical arch, oriented somewhat toward the plane of coiling, a narrow bordering rim flaring at the backward margin into a prominent lip, behind which is a secondary opening into the chamber, just anterior to the adjacent structure. Greatest diameter of holotype 0.63 mm. in maximum diameter.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within M. schneegansi zone (89.91-92.56Ma, top in Turonian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]

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
