Original Description

Strongly globose shell nutlike, lacking stricture save a slight indentation on the coryphal face and without special swelling; pores similarly circular and of nearly the same size, shallow, and relatively numerous (about 75 or more on face of the shell); meshwork shallow, indefinitely polygonal, the pores enclosed in wide mats and in crooked vertical lines (of 7-8 pores in a tier), the interporous areas having low tubercles so that the general surface is lumpy; the shell lacking an apical horn and with a very weak great circle; the 6 basal feet similar in size, long (as long as the shell altitude), divergent, nearly straight, and similarly thin and needlelike in shape, basally connected with one another by the flared, fused, hyaline bases forming low arches.

Total length 120µm, of feet 60µm; greatest breadth of shell 70µm; diameter of pores 6.6µm.
