Original Description
testulae capitulo globoso parvo spinulis aculeato, celluloso, articulo secundo late campanulato, margine posteriore breviter spinescente.
QDForma elegans parva, tota 1/68\’ cum spinis 1/48\"' longa, capitulo 1/180, articulo secundo 1/96\"' longis, cellularum series longitudinales, in 1/96\"' 4 cellulae aequales. Haec forma forsan posticam partem apertam habet et tunc ad Lophophaenas amandanda esset.

Translation: [Small test with the cephalis globose, small, spiny, and with little thorns, porous; second segment broadly campanulate, posterior margin with short spines. Small elegant form, total length 35 µ with spines 47 µ, tudinal rows, 4 equal pores in 24 µ. This form perhaps has the posterior part open, and then could be likened to Lophophaena. (Translated from Latin by E.M.R. and W.R.R.)]"
