Original Description
Cephalis trilobate, with three odd ovate lobes of nearly equal size in the sagittal plane and two divergent straight slender cylindrical tubes, a vertical apical tube on the occipital lobe, and a horizontal nasal tube on the frontal lobe; the middle lobe between them is somewhat smaller. Thorax ovate, about twice as large as the cephalis, with constricted mouth. Pores small and numerous.

Length of the shell 100µm; breadth 60µm.

Editors' Notes
[Although Haeckel does not explicitly assign Acrobotrys disolenia to the subgenus Acrobotrella, it is clear from the discussion of the genus Acrobotrys in this reference that Haeckel intends this assignment.
Stratigraphic information for LM21 from Riedel, 1959, p.287.]
