Original Description

Shell bottle-shaped, with twelve sharp strictures, very similar in form and structure to the preceding species; but instead of the three simple fenestrated ribs there arise here, along the shell, three series of short, triangular, latticed wings. The four first and the last joints are without wings. The hemispherical cephalis bears a curved conical horn, as long as the subspherical last joint. The twelve joints of the upper conical part are nearly equal in length, with regular, small, hexagonal pores. The last inflated joint is one-third as long as the shell, and has larger, irregular, polygonal pores.

Length of the shell (with thirteen joints) 0.25, of the last joint 0.08; breadth 0.l.

Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Cyrtopera lagenella under the subgeneric name Cyrtolagena, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.

In the description the he \preceding species\" refers to Cyrtopera laguncula in Haeckel, 1887a."[comment from RadWorld database]
