Original Description

"Shell globigerinelliform plano-convex, oval outline, consisting of 2 whorls with 4 chambers to the last whorl, rapidly increasing in size and closely packed together. The chambers to the last whorl, as is usual in the genus, are strongly inflated. Dorsal side compressed, ventral convex. The chambers on the dorsal side are clearly defined and compressed whereas on the ventral side they are inflated and hemispherical. The last chamber is particularly large and is almost spherical. Sutures short, very slightly curved almost straight. On the dorsal side they are not deeply incised, on the central side they are strongly incised. Peripheral margin broadly rounded and coarsely scalloped. Umbilicus always distinct though small and having the form of a shallow depression in the middle of the ventral surface. Orifice slit-like, usually with small, indistinct lips forming a lamelliform border to the slit. Orifice along marginal suture. Dimensions: diameter 0.28-0.50 mm, thickness 0.12-0.24 mm."
