Original Description
Disk with smooth surface and smooth simple margin. Pores regular, circular; thirteen to fourteen on the radius of the disk. Four crossed spines conical, strong, longer than the radius of the disk, on the inside prolonged into four thinner centripetal axial rods, which do not reach the center. In the middle part of the disk also some other short axial rods arise from the inside, not reaching the center (as in Stylodiscus endostylus, Pl. 31, fig. 11).

Size: Diameter of the disk 0.16, of the pores 0.004; length of the spines 0.2, breadth 0.014.

Editors' Notes
Haeckel listed Crucidiscus endostaurus under the subgeneric name Staurexodiscus, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.[comment from RadWorld database]
