Original Description
Shell sparsely pored, dome-shaped. without sagittal constriction, with a series of lamellar teeth distally.
QTSagittal ring D-shaped, separated from the lattice shell except for a shorter or greater distance above the vertical spine. Apical bar straight, joined to the lattice-shell by one or two pairs of bars. Apical part of sagittal ring connected with lattice shell by shorter or longer bars, or rarely joined to it directly. Primary and secondary lateral bars. and dorsal bar, well developed. Some specimens have a poorly developed apical spine, and others have a tuft of short thorns apically. but usually the shell surface is completely smooth, vertical pore distinct.QTLattice shell thick, with sparse, small. circular pores tending to be tubular. Peristome a poreless band, from which arise approximately 15 flat, parallel lamellar teeth.

Size: Based on 30 specimens from Cores 94-22, 94 25, 94-30, 94-32, and 96-3. Height of shell (including teeth) 70-105 µ, of sagittal ring 35-50 µ. Maximum breadth 65-80 µ.

Etymology: The specific name is derived from the superficial resemblance of the outline to that of a strawberry.

Extra details from original publication
Distinguishing features: This species resembles Dendrospyris acuta and D. turriturcica in having the apical part of the sagittal ring separated from the lattice shell, but differs from them in possessing a wide peristome with lamellar teeth. The feet are shorter than those of Pet
