Original Description

Tests small, elongate, wholly triserial. All foramina and the aperture are placed axially and perpendicular to the sutures, are slit-like elongate, with a distinct lip which is crenulate at the axial side of the border of the apertures, as in Chiloguembelina. It is like a Guembelina in which the biserial part is not yet developed, and may be the true ancestor of that genus. Both Chiloguembelitria and Chiloguembelina are monolamellar.
