Original Description

Moderate in size, fairly robust; slightly elevated sinistral trochospire, tight. Equatorial outline circular though slightly oval, weakly lobate; lateral outline moderately convex dorsally, moderately truncated ventrally. Chambers angular-truncate, closely appressed, at least 11 in total, in final whorl; increase moderate; final chamber reduced. Dorsal view: chambers longer concentrically, barely inflated; sutures generally flush; intercameral sutures directed anteriorly then recurved posteriorly 1/3 toward periphery, nonlimbate, tend to be depressed distally as posterior portion of next chamber is inclined below anterior portion of previous chamber. Ventral view: chambers moderately highly inflated; intercameral sutures depressed, curved posteriorly and then may be recurved anteriorly, producing a slightly sinuous shape, meet at tight umbilicus; aperture umbilical--extraumbilical, interiomarginal, low, with a thin lip. Lateral view: dorsal side of final chamber flat, slightly concave; dorsoperipheral shoulder rounded but compressed; ventral face and terminal face concave; umbilical shoulder smoothly rounded. Wall smooth, densely and finely perforate; pustules near aperture.

Length, 360 µm; width 350 µm; height, 250 µm.

Latin, evexus, rounded at the top.
