Original Description
Cortical shell lentelliptical, about one and a half times as long as broad, with very lax and irregular spongy framework, arising from a nearly quadrangular lattice-shell like that of Tetrapyle; this latter encloses a Larnacilla-shell of half its size. Whole surface covered with thin bristle-like radial spines, of about the length of the shell.

Length of the whole shell (without spines) 0.18, breadth 0.12; length of the medullary shell 0.05, breadth 0.035.

Etymology: Latin spinosus -a -um = spinous
