Original Description

Die rauhe Gitterschale, durch 7 Stricturen in 8 Glieder getheilt, die mit Ausnahme des Köpfchens oben ziemlich gleiche Breite haben; Verhältniss der Breite zur Länge 5:16. Erstes Glied kugelig, zweites glockenförmig, drittes und siebentes tonnenförmig, letztes, etwas schief angesetzt, ist unten abgebrochen. Die runden gleichmässigLöcher sind in etwas schiefen Querreihen alternirend geordnet, und ist ihre Grösse in den obern 7 Gliedern 1/25 der Schalenbreite, mit ungefähr doppelt so breiten Zwischenbalken. Am untersten Gliede variirt ihre Grösse bis zur doppelten, und stehen sie dort unregelmässig.
[Rough shell divided by 7 strictures into 8 segments, of same width except for the cephalis; ratio of breadth to length as 5/16. First segment globular, second bell-shaped, third and seventh barrel-shaped, last segment somewhat askew and with a broken end. Regular circular pores distributed in oblique alternating rows, as large on the 7th segment as 1/25 of the shell breadth, with bars approximately twice as large. On the last segment pores are irregular with a width varying from normal to two times as large. (In German. Translated by J.P.C.)]

Shell length 270µm, maximum width, 83µm; Lengths of the segments from the top down: 17, 33, 33, 27, 17, 17, 4, 83µm. Pores 3-4µm, on the last segment till 6µm.
