Original Description
Surface of the shell smooth. Both principal cupolas (on the poles of the longitudinal axis) larger than the four other cupolas, which have the same size and lie cross-wise in the equatorial plane. (Therefore two of the three fundamental axes equal, the third larger.) Pores subregular, circular, three times as broad as the bars; ten to twelve in the semicircle of each cupola-basis.

Size: Major axis 0.16, minor axis 0.12; pores 0.012, bars 0.004.

Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Cubotholus quadraticus under the subgeneric name Cubotholissa, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.[comment from RadWorld database]
