Original description: Test trochoid, compressed, composed of 2 to 2½ whorls, spire low, umbilicus large, open; chambers distinct, seven in the adult whorl, very little increasing in size as added in the adult; sutures distinct, depressed, radial; wall rough, probably due to the original spinosity of the surface; aperture opening into the umbilicus.
