Original Description

Shell a regular sphere, everywhere occupied by short, regular cylindrical tubes, all of the same size and form. Length of the tubules equal to their breadth and to the intervals between them. Ten to twelve tubules in the half meridian of the shell. This most regular species is nearly allied to Collosphæra regularis, and may be derived from it by tubular prolongation of all the regular pores.

Diameter of the shell 0.1 to 0.12, length and breadth of the tubules 0.006 to 0.006. [dimensions in mm]
