Original Description

Test biserial, sometimes twisted; wall calcareous per- forate; aperture a high arch, eccentric in position, extending from the base of the last chamber onto the apertural face. On the outside margin, a collar borders the aperture. Near the base of the inside margin, the collar and apertural edge are turned inward, producing a plate-like connection with the proximal margin of the collar of the previous aperture. The length of the test varies between 75 and 300 microns.

from streptos, Gr., twisted, + cheilos, Gr., lip, denoting the change to an inward directed lip.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks: This genus probably evolved from Chiloguembelina, which it resembles, through infolding of the inner margin of the aperture. In view of its apparent close affinity to Chiloguembelina, the rather simple modification of the interior does not seem to warrant exclusion of this genus from classification within the Heterohelicidae. No tooth plates, such as characterize the Bolivinitidae, occur in members of this genus, and no stage of development other than biserial was observed in any specimens assigned to this taxon.

Geologic range: Lower Miocene-Recent.
