Original Description
Petite Lithamphora à trois segments. Céphalis et thorax soudés avec tube vertical incliné sur le thorax. Abdomen rétréci en tube très court avant l'ouverture. Cette espèce se distingue de la précédente, dont elle est peut-être l'ancêtre, par une suture lombaire plus nette et une ouverture non rétrécie.
[Small Lithamphora with three segments. Cephalis and thorax united with the vertical tube inclined on thorax. Abdomen narrowing into a very short tube before opening. This secies is distinguished from the former (L. crustula) whose it may be the ancestor, by lombar stricture more marked and a not narrowed opening.]
