Gröfste Breite = 2/3 der Totallänge. Gitterlöcher unregelmäfsig, ungleich, rundlich. Centralkapsel vierlappig, orangeroth, etwa 2/3 so lang als die Schale.
Lattice shell three-segmented, asymmetrical; upper segment spherical with an oblique, eccentrically distributed, curved spine; second segment almost conical, obliquely oriented, with 3 broken wing-shaped, triangular, irregular, lattice appendages distributed in 3 different directions; lower segment almost barrel-shaped, obliquely distributed, with a pair of small spines, as long as both upper segments and upper spine. Maximum width almost as large as the two third of the total length. Pores circular, irregular in distribution and shape, Central capsule with four lobes, red orange, approximately as long as two third of the shell. (In German. Translated by J.P.C.)]
