Original Description
Shell rough, wide, urceolate, without external strictures, but with four internal septal rings (not visible in the figure), each of which contains an internal circle of horizontal pores. Five joints of different lengths = 2: 3: 6: 4: 2. The third joint is the broadest, and three times as broad as the constricted mouth. Pores of very different sizes, irregular, roundish, with prominent polygonal frames. A very remarkable species.

Size: Length of the shell (with five joints) 0.17. Length of the single joints, a 0.02, b 0.03, c 0.06, d 0.04, e 0.02; greatest breadth 0.13.
