Original Description
Shell spindle-shaped, thin walled, the two opposite tubes being conical and not longer than the short transverse axis of the ellipsoidal shell; no sharp demarcation between them. The two axes of the ellipsoid bear the proportion of 3: 2. Network of the shell and of the tubes equal, delicate, regular, hexagonal, with circular apertures of equal size; fourteen to sixteen on the half equator of the shell. Bars very thin. The shell of this species is similar to that of Cannartiscus amphiconiscus (Pl. 39, fig. 19), but possesses no equatorial stricture and no medullary shell.

Size: Longer axis of the ellipsoid 0.18, shorter axis 0.12; length of the tubes 0.1, their basal breadth 0.05; pores of the network 0.01, bars 0.001.
