Original Description

Shell a regular or subregular sphere, occupied by numerous broad cup-like tubules of very different sizes. In the half meridian of the shell about six to eight tubules, very flat, circular or subcircular, much constricted in the middle. Diameter of the inner aperture larger than that of the middle stricture, smaller than that of the outer aperture of the tubule; outer diameter two to four times as great as their length.

Diameter of the shell 0.l to 0.15, of the pores 0.0l to 0.04; length of the tubules 0.0l, breadth 0.02 to 0.04.

Editors' Notes
