Original Description
Inner cortical shell thin walled, with regular, circular, hexagonally-framed pores, twice as broad as the bars; seven to eight on the half meridian of each chamber, ten to twelve on its half equator. Outer cortical shell very thin, with smooth surface, and very small, irregular, roundish pores, twice to five times smaller than those of the inner shell. Distance between the two cortical shells equals the diameter of the outer medullary shell, which, like the inner, is spherical. (The network of this species resembles that of Peripanartus amphiconiscus, Pl. 40, fig. 5)

Main axis of the external corticalshell 0.18, of the internal 0.12; greatest breadth (in the equator of each chamber) of the former 0.13, of the latter 0.09; pores of the outer 0.002 to 0.005, of the inner shell 0.01, bars 0.002 to 0.005.

Editors' Notes
