Original Description

Translation from Russian: Test small, diameter no more than 0.23 mm, usually oval, concavo-convex, low trochoid, height about twice as small as the diameter. Coil made up of 2-2.5 whorls. Early chambers very small, weakly convex, oval or rounded in outline, hard to discern and only slightly surmounting the chambers of the last whorl. There are four or five of them. In the last whorl are four chambers, rapidly increasing in dimensions, relatively low, and somewhat flattend. Septal sutures depressed, slightly curved in the early chambers and nearly straight in the later ones. Peripheral margin narrow, rounded, outline of test distinctly lobate. Umbilicus small, narrow. Aperture opens into umbilicus and extends along the base of the last chambers, not reaching the peripheral margin, arcuate, fringed with a narrow, slightly expressed lip, filled with rock in the specimens studied. Wall finely perforate.
