Original Description Radial proportion of the four shells = 1: 2.5: 6: 9. Outer cortical shell very thin walled, with thread-like bars, and irregular, polygonal pores; inner cortical shell with similar pores, but with thicker bars. Both medullary shells with regular, circular pores (the outer three times as broad as the inner). Numerous thin radial beams connect the latter with the former; other very thin and numerous beams connect the two cortical shells, and are prolonged outside into short bristle shaped spines (often longer than in the figure). Diameter of the four shells - (A) 0.18, (B) 0.12, (C) 0.05, (D) 0.02; pores of the outer shell 0.01 to 0.02; length of the spines 0.01 to 0.03.
