Shell ovate, smooth, with deep collar, but indistinct lumbar stricture; very similar to the two preceding species, but with different horn and peristome. Length of the three joints = 3: 5: 8, breadth = 3: 10: 13. Cephalis subspherical, with a pyramidal horn of twice the length, the three faces of which are deeply concave. Thoracic pores half as large as the abdominal, both subregular, double-edged. Outer coronal of the wide peristome with nine short, triangular, subvertical feet, inner with nine larger, horizontal feet, lying in the plane of the wide mouth.

Size: Length of the three joints, a 0.03, b 0.05, c 0.08; breadth, a 0.03, b 0.1, c 0.13.

Editors' Notes
Haeckel listed Lamprocyclas delforata under the subgeneric name Lamprocyclia, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.
