Original Description

"Test coiled in relatively high trochospiral coil; 6-7 chambers in last whorl. Coiling sinistral or dextral with no preferences insofar as known. Chambers spherical in shape about as wide as long; tending to shift toward the umbilicus with coiling. Sutures curved, radial, depressed both spirally and umbilically. Umbilicus deep and of moderate to small size. Early chambers of last whorl somewhat rugose. Keels, imperforate peripheral bands lacking in specimens thus far encountered. Primary aperture interiomarginal, umbilical in position; no evidence of tegilla due to unfavorable conditions of preservation in Austin chalk. Outer wall radial hyaline perforate; septal walls microgranular hyaline, finely perforate."


from the South Bosque River.
