Original description: Test biserial throughout consisting of fifteen to seventeen chambers, which increase slowly in size as added. The proloculus is small-sized and is followed by the slightly large-side second chambers. Earlier chambers are subglobular in shape, then subrectangular, the last-formed ones being reniform and tilted and with a small test wall flexure oriented towards the zigzag suture. The resulted chamber inflation is attached to the previous formed chamber of the row in the morphologically advanced specimens. Test axis of growth can be slightly twisted in the plane of symmetry. Sutures are distinct, depressed, straight between the earlier chambers and curved between the last-formed ones, oblique to the test axis of growth. The test is symmetrical in edge view, with broadly rounded periphery and without peripheral structures. Aperture is a medium to high arch situated at the base of the last-formed chamber. It is bordered by two symmetrically developed periapertural flanges. False accessory apertural openings can be present along the zigzag suture at the specimens with developed text wall flexure. Chamber surface is ornamented with fine, often discontinuous and closely spaced costae. Test wall is calcareous, hyaline and microperforate, pore diameter ranging between 0.7 and 0.9 microns. Pores are mostly situated in the narrow spaces between costae, more rarely over these ornamentation elements resulting in interrupted ornamentation feature.
