Original Description
Shell campanulate, with two slight strictures. Length of the three joints = 2: 3: 3, breadth = 2: 5: 6. Cephalis subcylindrical, with about fifteen longitudinal rows of circular pores, separated by prominent, parallel crests, and with a very large sword-like horn, nearly as long as the shell. Thorax hemispherical, smooth, with elegant, circular, hexagonally-framed pores. Abdomen dilated, with similar but larger pores, armed with hook-shaped spines. The two inferior rows of these hooks form the double coronal of the peristome; the feet of the outer are curved downwards, of the inner inwards.

Size: Length of the three joints, a 0.04, b 0.06, c 0.06; breadth, a 0.04, b 0.1, c 0.12.
