Extra details from original publication
Remarks: This new subfamily differs from the Heterohelicinae Cushman in having early planispiral stage followed successively by tri-, bi- and uniserial stages and by having a terminal aperture on a distinct neck with lip and non-porous cover plate. It also differs from members of the Guembelitriinae Montanaro Gallitelli in having a planispiral initial part and triserial stage followed by biserial and uniserial stages, in the characters of the aperture, and in lacking quadriserial arrangement.
