Original Description

Small robust; low sinistral trochospire, very tight parallel and perpendicular to axis. Equatorial outline very weakly lobate; lateral outline oval. Chambers globular, closely appressed, at least 10 chambers, 3i in the final whorl; increase slow. Dorsal view: chambers longer concentrically, barely inflated; sutures barely depressed; intercameral sutures directed and curved posteriorly. Ventral view: chambers inflated; intercameral sutures radial to curved, almost meeting at closed umbilicus; aperture an umbilical moderate circular arch, slightly pushed distally, with a distinct wide lip. Lateral view: smoothly rounded. Wall regularly perforate but considerably thickened by coalescing of interpore ridges.

Length, 175 µm; width, 165 µm; height, 150 µm.

Latin, compatus, thick, firm.
