Original Description

Very large, robust; moderately elevated sinistral trochospire, moderately loosely coiled in later whorls, both parallel and perpendicular to axis. Equatorial outline weakly trilobate; lateral outline highly umbilicoconvex. Chambers ovate parallel to axis, extremely closely appressed, over 8 (137), 3 in final whorl, 3i in second-last whorl; increase moderately rapid until third-last chamber when much reduced. Dorsal view: chambers much longer concentrically, slightly inflated; sutures weakly depressed; intercameral sutures slightly anteriorly directed, recurved posteriorly close to periphery giving effect of lateral overlap by next chamber; chambers broadest posteriorly, thus increasing lobation. Ventral view: chambers vaulted halfway to umbilicus, thus leaving a wide umbilicus and reduced intercameral contact; intercameral sutures radial where present; aperture umbilical, covered by foreign material. Lateral view: dorsoperipheral shoulder smoothly rounded; ventral face slightly flattened; umbilical shoulder acute; apertural face steep. Wall cancellate with large, dense pores.

Length, 460 µm; width, 490 µm; height, 570 µm.

Latin. tres, three; camera (f.), chamber; -atus, provided with.
