Original Description

"Test trochoid, calcareous, perforate, globose, almost as wide as high; chambers increasing rapidly in size; well defined chambers typically nine to ten arranged in three distinct whorls; the chambers of the first two four-chambered whorls globose; last chambers usually somewhat flattened and vary in size and shape; periphery distinctly lobulate between the globose chambers; wall structure the typical hexagonal pore structure of the globigerinids; multiple apertures along the suture lines varying in number from one in the last chamber to two in the last chamber or two others into earlier chambers; apertures vary in shape from low arched openings into the last chamber to round openings into earlier chambers; some apertures have poorly defined lip.
