Dorsal view: chambers much longer concentrically, weakly inflated; sutures fairly deeply incised; intercameral sutures directed and curved posteriorly where present; apertures on posterior proximal spiral sutures of final, second-last, and third-last chambers. Ventral view: chambers inflated; intercameral sutures curved; umbilicus tight; large apertures opposite second-last--third-last and third-last--fourth-last intercameral sutures. Lateral view: smoothly rounded. Wall densely perforate, deeply cancellate.

Length, 390 µm; width 375 µm; height, 405 µm.
