Original Description
Cephalis quinquelobate, with five short conical tubes; three divergent odd tubes arise from three odd lobes; an apical from the occipital lobe, a posterior caudal from the suboccipital lobe, and an anterior sternal from the nasal lobe. Two paired lateral tubes arise from the base of two ovate frontal lobes. The five tubes correspond in disposition to the five spines of Stephanium. Thorax truncate. Pores small.

Size: Length of the shell 0.12, breadth 0.09.

Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Although Haeckel does not explicitly assign Acrobotrys pentasolenia to the subgenus Acrobotrusa it is clear from the discussion of the genus Acrobotrys in this reference that Haeckel intends this assignment.[comment from RadWorld database]
