Original Description

Cortical shell thick walled, with a thickened ring-shaped protuberance in the greatest breadth of both chambers. Pores subregular, circular, twice to three times as broad as the bars; seven to eight on the half meridian, thirteen to fifteen on the half equator of each chamber. Polar tubes conical, with smaller pores, somewhat shorter than the greatest breadth, nearly as thick at the base as the outer spheroidal medullary shell (fig. 18a).

Main axis (without tubes) 0.12, greatest breadth 0.08; pores 0.003 to 0.006, bars 0.002; length of the polar tubes 0.08, basal thickness 0.03.
