Original Description

Test quadrilateral, composed of about two coils arranged in a low trochoid spire; chambers inflated, very little appressed, rapidly enlarging with the last two about equal in size, four comprising the last whorl; sutures deep; finely perforate; aperture obscured, undoubtedly in the relatively small umbilicus.

Diameter of type specimen, 0.35 mm.; thickness, 0.2 mm.

Extra details from original publication

Occurrence: This species occurs as a rare form in the middle and upper Mendez, becomes quite abundant at the very base of the Velasco and only slightly less so throughout the lower part of the Velasco.
This form is similar to G. bulloides of some authors, but its relative size and arrangement of chambers, as well as the fact that it cannot possess an aperture of the size or position comparable with the latter species, prevents its inclusion in that species.
