Original Description

Pores of the shell irregular, roundish, of very unequal size and dissimilar form, twice to eight times as broad as the bars; ten to fifteen on the half meridian, seven to nine on the half equator. Irregularly scattered on the whole surface a large number of thin conical spines, about as large as the meshes, partly directed radially, partly obliquely. (The shell of this species resembles very much that of Cyphonium ceratospyris (p. 366) = Didymocyrtis ceratospyris, Monogr. d. Radiol., 1862, Taf. xxii. fig. 14, but is without the enclosed inner shells.)

Main axis 0.12, equatorial axis 0.07; meshes 0.004 to 0.02, bars 0.002 to 0.005; spines 0.01 to 0 02. [dimensions in mm]
