Original Description

Test small, strongly convex, turret-shaped, consisting of 3 whorls; there are 4-5 highly inflated rounded chambers in the final whorl; these chambers are closely adjacent to one another so that the whole test looks like a disorganized accumulation of spherical chambers. The chambers grow very uniform in size. The sutures are short, slightly curved, almost straight. The umbilical aperture is a large slit in the extraumbilical area. The aperture has a small raised lip. Wall smooth, finely porous. Average dimensions: Diameter 0.15 mm; greatest thickness 0.10 mm.
