Original Description

Shell more or less irregularly roundish or subspherical, occupied in part by very small pores, in part by very large cylindrical tubules, inflated in the middle. Number, form, and size of the tubes very irregular; commonly there are five to ten, half as long or as long as the shell radius; their inner and outer aperture about half as broad as their inflated middle part; three to nine times as broad as the pores. A very irregular and variable species.

Diameter of the shell 0.1 to 0.15, of the pores 0.001 to 0.005, of the tubules 0.015 to 0.03; length of the tubules 0.03 to 0.08. [dimensions in mm]
