Original Description
Cortical shell with thorny surface, and irregular, roundish pores, twice to four times as broad as the bars; seven to eight on the half meridian, eleven to thirteen on the half equator of each chamber. Around both poles of the main axis occurs a circle of ten to twelve strong, radially divergent spines, about as long as the diameter of the outer medullary shell, which, like the inner, is spheroidal. (This species is identical with the younger developmental stage of Panicium coronatum, Pl. 40, fig. 4, before the formation of two distal chambers.)

Size: Main axis 0.12, greatest breadth 0.1; pores 0.008 to 0.016, bars 0.004; length of the polar spines 0.02, thickness 0.005.

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