Original Description
Cephalis trilobate, with four slender cylindrical tubes. Occipital lobe helmet-shaped, with an apical tube on the apex and a caudal tube on the base. Two frontal lobes ovate, prolonged into two paired pectoral tubes. The four tubes correspond in position to the four spines of Cortina. Thorax inflate, ovate, larger than the cephalis. Pores very scarce, rather large, irregular.

Size: Length of the shell 0.08, breadth 0.05.

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