Original Description
Cephalis large, subspherical, with numerous small, circular pores and three to six divergent, slender, apical horns. Thorax flatly conical, smooth, not much larger than the cephalis, with six large, triangular or ovate basal holes between the six ribs. Three of these ribs are primary or perradial, and arise immediately from the collar septum, alternating with three secondary or interradial ribs, which arise more outside. The specimen observed by me exhibited six apical horns, and was more complete than that figured by Bütschli, the six ribs being prolonged over the connecting lattice-girdle into six short, divergent feet.

Size: Cephalis 60µm long, 60µm broad; thorax 80µm long, 100µm broad.

Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Acanthocorys bütschlii under the subgeneric name Acanthocorallium, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.[comment from RadWorld database]
