Original Description

Test more convex on the dorsal side, chambers elongated, arched, tending to become petaloid and strongly oblique to the plane of coiling in the adult stage. They are rapidly inflated but irregularly increased so that the second chamber is considerably developed, often bigger than the last one. The sutural elevations are round and thick, being absent on the ventral side. A large, blunt, thick peripheral keel is present which splits somewhat into equally rounded blunt keels in the early stages. The test is rough and the umbilicus narrow. The presence of an umbilical lip could be observed through the hard matrix filling the umbilical cavity (fig. 5-b).

Dimensions of holotype: Width 0.44 x 0.35 mm.; thickness, 0.25 mm.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks.—The form is closely related to Glt. intermedia intermedia Bolli which differs because of its more regular arrangement of chambers and its finely beaded, not so strongly diverging keels.
