Taxonomic discussion: Made up of more crystallographically distinct blocks than other species of Daktylethra.

Distinguishing features: Cavate holococcolith, seen in side-view, comprising a thin proximal plate and rim that are crystallographically distinct from a large, perforate, domed distal process. Typically, birefringent at 0° in XPL, darkening when rotated to 45°.
