Original Description
Shell nut-shaped, tuberculate, with distinct sagittal stricture and irregular roundish pores. Basal plate with six larger and twelve smaller pores. Three horns conical, the apical as long as the shell and twice as long as the curved frontal horns. Two pectoral feet cylindrical, very large, curved, divergence, about three times as long as the shell and as the four other feet, which are conical.

Size: Shell 0.08 long, 0.12 broad; apical horn 0.08, frontal horns 0.05 long; length of the two pectoral feet 0.2, of the four others 0.06.

Editors' Notes
Figure explanation: the letter \g\". mentioned in the figure explanations above as the designation for scapular rods, is apparently in error. On p.934 Haeckel uses \"d\" for scapular rods, which is consistent with the illustration.

On p.955, for \"odd caudal foot (t)\" read \"odd caudal foot (c)\"."[comment from RadWorld database]
