Original Description
Cortical shell thin walled, with smooth surface; its pores regular, hexagonal, three to four times as broad as the bars; ten to twelve on the half meridian, seven to eight on the half equator. Medullary shell spherical, its diameter one-third of the equatorial axis of the cortical shell. (The cortical shell of this species is nearly identical with the central half of the cortical shell of Panartus diploconus, P1. 40, fig 1.)

Size: Main axis of the cortical shell 0.12, equatorial axis 0.07; meshes 0.013, bars 0.003; diameter of the medullary shell 0.025.

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