Original Description

Test subglobular, trochoid, dorsal side rather convex, ventral side very deep due to the very rapid increase in height of the chambers except for the last one. which is always very low and flattened; periphery lobulate; edge broadly rounded, only a very slight shoulder ; whorls about three, the last having nearly four chambers; sutures considerably- depressed, slightly curved; wall rather coarsely reticulate but fairly smooth; aperture a moderately high arch on the septal face of the final small chamber opening above a very small umbilicus. Common.

Diameter, 0.53 mm; thickness, 0.46 mm.

Extra details from original publication
The contrast of the antepenultimate and penultimate chambers with the small, flattened last chamber is a characteristic which easily distinguishes this variety from G. rotundata d'Orbigny (see Fornasini, 1898 p. 208, tf. 3).
