Original Description
Shell flat, conical, with deep collar stricture, very similar in form and structure to the preceding species; differs from it in the shape of the peristome and the armature of the cephalis, which bears a conical, forked, occipital horn of the same length, and a small rudimentary divergent frontal horn. Length of the two joints = 1: 2, breadth = 1: 6. The four pores of the collar septum (two larger cardinal and two smaller jugular) exhibit in this species a peculiar asymmetry (fig. 8). The peristome bears a simple coronal of spines as long as the diameter of the cephalis. The major part of them is forked, some irregularly branched.

Size: Cephalis 0.02 long, 0.03 broad; thorax 0.06 long, 0.18 broad.
