Original Description

Very large, robust; moderately elevated sinistral trochospire, tight parallel and perpendicular to axis. Equatorial outline weakly quadrilobate; lateral outline highly umbilicoconvex. Chambers ovate parallel to axis, extremely closed appressed, over 11 (18?) in total, 4 in final whorl, 5! in second-last whorl; increase rapid until third-last chamber when decreases. Dorsal view: chambers distinctly elongated concentrically, weakly elevated proximally; sutures weakly depressed; intercameral sutures radial in final whorl, increasingly directed and curved posteriorly to earlier chambers; chambers broadest posteriorly giving a tangential lobation. Ventral view: chambers vaulted very close to umbilicus; intercameral sutures radial to curved, very deeply incised, adjacent pairs (final--second-last and second-Iast--third-last; third-Iast--fourth-last and fourth-last--finaI) meet at opposite ends of broad umbilical gap which is moderately wide; aperture obscured, umbilical. Lateral view: dorsoperipheral shoulder and ventral face smoothly rounded; umbilical shoulder recurved very close to umbilicus; apertural face reclined. Wall cancellate with large dense pores.

Length, 385 µm; width, 405 µm; height, 410 µm

Latin, ventriosus, pot-bellied, bulging.
