Original Description
Cephalis trilobate, with a single straight apical tube, which ascends vertically from the apex of the occipital lobe, and is pointed at the distal end, with an anterior oblique aperture. Two frontal lobes paired, ovate, half as long as the helmet-shaped occipital lobe. Thorax ovate, twice as long as the cephalis. Pores very scarce.

Length of the shell 80µm, breadth 60µm.

Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Although Haeckel does not explicitly assign Acrobotrys monosolenia to the subgenus Acrobotrantha, it is clear from the discussion of the genus Acrobotrys in this reference that Haeckel intends this assignment.
