Original Description
Shell ovate, spiny, with two slight annular transverse strictures; their length equal to one and a half times the breadth, and up to seven times the length of the ring. Apical horn quite included by the loose lattice-work of the large conical cupola, which is as long as the cephalis and thorax together. The three slender feet are also included in the lattice-work and only one-third as long as the shell, nearly vertical. Lattice-work much denser than in the two preceding species.

Size: Length of the shell 0.4, breadth 0.26, ring 0.06 long.
