Original description: Cephalis with a neck. The thorax is subglobal or nearly ellipsoidal, about 60┬Ám; abdomen reduced. The number of the pores is the same as in G. japonica (about 7-9 on a half of the equator). Pores rather small, arranged far apart. The shell mouth is constricted.
Remarks on original description: In tropical Atlantic deposits the species is restricted to Calocycletta costara Zone; also in the middle Miocene in the Antarctic.
