Original Description

This species differs from the form described from the Isthmus of Tehuantepec I having more elongate chambers. These are, however, not as attenuate as those of H. jarvisi Cushman (Contr. Cushman lab. Foram. Research, vol. 6, 1930, pt. 1, p. 15). The terminations are also smooth and rounded and never spinose as in the latter species.
