Original Description

Shell not especially large, rather stout (1.6-2.4 diameters of cylinder in length); cephalis knoblike, distinct, with much lateral flattening, and with a short, sometimes curved, or straight, apical horn, cervix truncate and constricted; thorax distinct, truncate apically, subhemispherical, its basal diameter exceeding distal diameter, and marked by an internal transverse septum; abdominal joints three, clearly limited by lumbar constrictions and transverse septa, uppermost joint subhemispherical like thorax and more or less continued in contour with it, these two regions forming, as a whole, a cone (45°), its sides strongly bulged, its length approximately 0.29 total length, and its basal diameter 1.37 upper diameters, second and third joints together subcylindrical, second one about same length as first, and third one shorter, its distal end inturned with a somewhat constricted mouth with short, projecting, discrete, spinelike denticles (mouth commonly torn); wall uniformly thin, gray; pores lacking on cephalis, on thorax approximately 40, well scattered, in subhexagonal areas with raised corners, pores of abdomen larger than those of thorax, well separated, scattered, all pores subcircular.

Length, total, 200µm; diameter of cylindrical abdomen, 70µm, of pores, 8.8µm.

Extra details from original publication
Distinguishing characters: Rare individuals have first two shell-segments together barrel-like in shape.
Eucyrtidium delmontense n. sp. has a wider mouth and a more clearly defined bell shape than calvertense (Martin, 1904) and has fewer internal septa and abdominal divisions than acuminatum (Ehrenberg, 1847), from Sicily.
