Original Description Small, but not very fragile; low dextral trochospire, tight parallel and perpendicular to axis. Equatorial outline oval prior to reduced final chamber, then circular, moderately lobate; lateral outline compressed, weakly umbilicoconvex. Chambers ovate, closely appressed, about 12 chambers in total, 5! in final whorl; increase moderately quick, regular except reduced last chamber. Dorsal view: chambers slightly longer concentrically, later ones slightly inflated; sutures moderately depressed; intercameral sutures directed anteriorly and smoothly but quickly curved posteriorly at distal end. Ventral view: chambers moderately inflated; intercameral sutures depressed, curved, meet at closed umbilicus. Lateral view: smoothly rounded; aperture interiomarginal, umbilical--extraumbilical, very low, with very thin lip. Wall surface smooth, microperforate?; small, widely spaced pustules, more dense on ventral and dorsal surfaces of earlier chambers. Size: Length, 95 µm; width, 90 µm; height, 45 µm. Etymology: Latin, compressus, pressed together, squeezed. Extra details from original publication Description based on: Nine specimens. Holotype fig.: Fordham 1986 Pl. 2, fig. 50. Editors' Notes

thanks for pointing the out - as you explained separately the species descriptions in Fordham 86 are vzlid even though the generic ones (mostly?) aren't. Hence this would seem to be the senior synonym, and should be reviewed by the Neogene working group.
