Original Description
Shell smooth, subcylindrical, constricted at both poles, with six distinct strictures. Seven joints of different lengths, the five abdominal joints nearly equal, each half as long as the hemispherical, vaulted thorax, and twice as long as the subspherical, small cephalis. Mouth constricted, with a short, tubular, hyaline peristome (like an eighth joint without pores), about one-third as broad as each of the four middle joints. Pores subregular hexagonal, or irregular polygonal, with thin bars.
