Original Description

"Test planispiral, rather deeply umbilicate, equatorial periphery subangular to angular, lobulate in outline, with either a keel or irregular rugosities or both, wich only occur on the earlier part of the last whorl. The last 2 or more chambers are unornamented. Sutures depressed, curved, bordered at their posterior side by more or less well-developed rugosities on the earlier part of the last whorl, thus giving the impression of being raised. At least the last suture remains unornamented. Chambers rounded triangular in apertural view, reniform in lateral view. There are 6-8, mostly 7 chambers in the last whorl, increasing gradually in size as added. Aperture an equatorial arch, interiomarginal in position, extending on either side into the umbilicus and backwards to the spiral suture, and bordered by a distinct lip. The lateral umbilical extensions of earlier apertures remain visible as relict apertures with their lips. Wall perforate, covered with small pustules, which, in the earlier part of the last whorl, tend to concentrate to form a keel and raised sutures."
