Original Description

Moderate in size, robust; moderately elevated dextral trochospire, fairly loose parallel to axis, tight perpendicular to axis. Equatorial outline barely lobate; lateral outline highly spiroconvex. chambers ovate parallel to axis, weakly appressed, at least 9 (13?) in total, 31 in final whorl, in second-last whorl; increase moderate. Dorsal view: chambers much longer concentrically, slightly inflated; sutures fairly deeply incised; intercameral sutures directed and curved posteriorly. Ventral view: chambers inflated; intercameral sutures curved; umbilicus tight, covered by flap with a very small, lipped opening on the second-Iast--third-last intercameral suture. Lateral view: dorsoperipheral shoulder rounded; ventral face very slightly flattened; umbilical shoulder recurved, not smoothly curved. Wall densely perforate, but partially covered by thickening, including joining of interpore ridges.

Length, 350 µm; width 360 µm; height, 350 µm.

Greek, epityche (f.), flap.
