Ventral view: chambers inflated; intercameral sutures curved, meeting at tight umbilicus; aperture umbilical, opposite second-last--third-Iast intercameral suture, a high broad arch with a thick lip. Lateral view: smoothly rounded. Wall densely perforate with connected interpore ridges producing a cancellate surface.
