Original Description
Shell, when viewed anteriorly or posteriorly, showing an elliptical to subangular cephalis without median constriction, and a nar-rower, open, distally tapering thorax. In side view, the shell is markedly compressed.
QTThe sagittal ring extends somewhat more than half the distance from the collar pores to the apex, and from its top arises an apical spine which is incorporated into the shell wall and then extends as a short thorn from the apical surface. Surface of lattice shell puckered at the level of the top of the sagittal ring. Primary and secondary lateral bars well developed.QTLattice shell robust, with pores of unequal size, subeircular on the cephalis and tending to be longitudinally elongated on the thorax. Vertical pore distinct. Termination of thorax uneven, with irregular lamellar teeth not markedly differentiated from the bars separating adjacent pores.

Size: Based on 15 specimens from Cores 94-28 and 94-30. Height of shell 80-145 µ, of sagittal ring 25-40 µ. Maximum breadth 75-120 µ.

Extra details from original publication
Distinguishing features: This species differs from Dendrospyris acuta in the thorax being open rather than closed, in the pores being more irregular, and in possessing an apical spine. Above its range of occurrence is a somewhat similar form (Plate 16, Figure 2; Plate 32, Figure
