Catalog entries: Tholospira dendrophora
Original description: Cortical shell covered with numerous (forty to fifty or more) branched radial spines, about half as long as the shell; each spine with two to six dichotomous branches. Perimeter of the lateral plane elliptical, one and a third times as long as broad. Eight internal egg-shaped gates, as in the foregoing species. One single wing of the sagittal girdle turns around the other in three to four spiral turns.
Remarks on original description: Haeckel listed Tholospira dendrophora under the subgeneric name Tholospirema, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.[comment from RadWorld database]
