Original Description
Diagnosis: It is characterized by its sinuous sutures on spiral side and very rapidly opening of the spire in the last whorl.
Description: Test relatively large, low trochospiral. Spiral side almost flat, umbilical side inflated. Last whorl six subglobular-ovate chambered increasing rapidly in size. Initial whorls of the test are commonly indistinct. The opening of the spire is very rapid in the last whorl. Equatorial periphery moderately lobulate, axial periphery broadly rounded. Sutures sinuous, depressed to incise with the exception of the first or two ones of the last whorl on spiral side, slightly curved to radial and depressed on umbilical side. Umbilicus small, aperture a low umbilical-extraumbilical arch bordered by distinct lip. Surface is finely perforate, slightly pustulose around umbilicus, in earlier part of last whorl.

Size: Max diameter of holotype is 0.42 mm

Etymology: From the sinuosity of sutures on the spiral side.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks: The new taxon is similar to G. peripheroronda in characteristics of umbilical sutures and lip but differs from it by having sinuous sutures on spiral side and more inflated final chamber in side view. It differs from Pg. mayeri and Pg. siakensis (Pl. 2, figs. 16-18) by having sinuous sutures on spiral side
