Original Description

Pores of the shell subregular, circular, without hexagonal frame, three times as broad as the bars; sixteen to eighteen on the half meridian, ten to twelve on the half equator. Irregularly scattered on the whole surface a variable number (twenty-five to thirty in all) of stout short radial spines or rather blunt rods; the length and thickness of these is the same, and equals the size of two to three meshes; its form resembles a truncated six-sided pyramid.

Main axis 0.11, equatorial axis 0.08; meshes 0.01, bars 0.003; length and thickness of the radial sticks 0.02.
