Original Description Shell rough, doubly conical, with three distinct strictures. Four joints of different lengths = 2: 5: 5: 8. The third joint is the broadest. The three first joints form together a broad cone, and the fourth an inverse truncate cone; the latter is distinguished by convergent longitudinal ribs. Pores regular, circular, alternating with the ribs in the fourth joint. Truncate mouth hyaline, half as broad as the third joint.
Length of the shell (with four joints) 0.2. Length of the single joints, a 0.02, b 0.05, c 0.05, d 0.08; breadth (in the middle part) 0.1. Editors' Notes Haeckel listed Lithocampe diploconus under the subgeneric name Lithocampium, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.
