Original Description

Rauhes spindelförmiges Gehäuse, durch 6 seichte Stricturen in 7 Theile getheilt, der vierte am breitesten. Verhältniss von Breite zur Länge 3:7. Erstes Glied kugelig, zweites und drittes glockenförmig, viertes tonnenförmig, fünftes und sechstes wieder glokenförmig, letztes fast cylindrisch; unten ist das Gehäuse nicht geschlossen sondern verengt zackig, und scheint abgebrochen zu sein. Gitterlöcher rund, regelmässig, 1/20 des grössten Breitedurchmessers; sie stehen in alternirenden Querreihen nicht ganz regelmässig geordnet. Am letzten Gliede werden sie etwas grösser. Zwischenbalken doppelt so breit.
[Shell roughly spindle-shaped, divided into 7 segments by 6 shallow strictures, the fourth segment being the widest. Ratio of breadth to length as 3/7. First segment spherical, second and third bell-shaped, fourth barrel-shaped, fifth and sixth bell-shaped again, last segment nearly cylindrical, shell not closed but with teeth, giving it a broken appearance. Pores circular, regular, 1/20 as large as the maximum width; distributed in alternating but not entirely regular rows. On the last segment large pores. Bars two times as large. (In German. Translated by J.P.C.)]

Shell length 230µm, maximum width 100µm ; Lengths of the segments from the top down: 17, 33, 33, 33, 6, 17, 4 µm. Breadth of the last segment less than 30µm. Pores 3 to 10µm on the last segment.
