Test a low trochospire, equatorial periphery trilobate to quadrilobate. Axial periphery rounded. Wall calcareous,

with 3-4 chambers in the final whorl. Distinct radial sutures on both umbilical and spiral sides, depressed and

NB The short diagnoses are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus. They have initially been copied from the diagnostic characters/distinguishing features sections of the Eocene and Paleocene Atlases, they will be edited as the site is developed.
