Original Description
testulae campanulatae capitulo ovato aculeo ensiformi triquetro longo armato, secundo et tertio articulo turgidis amplius cellulosis spinarum terminalium brevium ordine duplici, externo numerosiore et interno parciore.
QDElegantissima et integra ampla forma. Longitudo tota - 1/10\’, capituli cum aculeo 1/24\"’ , aculei ensiformis lati frontalis - 1/34\"’, capituli solius 1/96\"’, articuli primi et secundi singulis 1/45\"’, aculeorum terminalium 1/15\"’. Spinae terminales in ordine exteriore numerantur distinctae 6, obsoletae 2-4, in ordine interno s. aperturae margine 2. Inter aperturam amplam mediam postremam et marginem spinosum externum annulus laevis integer positus est. Cellulae capituli minores in 1/100\"’ 4, articuli secundi sensim maiores in 1/100\"’ 3 - 2 1/2, articuli tertii 2 - 1 3/4. Series cellularum longitudinales in capitulo 5 cellulas, in secundo articulo 6, in tertio 3-4 continent. Superficies aspera.

Translation: [Small campanulate test, with an ovate cephalis armed with a long, 3-bladed, sword-shaped spine; second and third segment broadly swollen, porous; with a double row of short terminal spines, the external ones more numerous and the internal ones fewer. Very elegant and complete form. Total length 225 µ, cephalis with spine 94 µ, broad sword-shaped frontal spine 66 µ, cephalis alone 24 µ, first and second segments each 50 µ, terminal spines 15 µ. There are 6 distinct and 2 - 4 obsolete terminal spines in the exterior row, and 2 in the internal row at the aperture of margin. There is a smooth, entire ring between the wide, median, posterior aperture and the external spiny margin. 4 small pores in 23 µ on the cephalis; the pores of the second segment gradually increase in size with 3 - 21/2 in 23 µ, and in the third segment there are 2 - 1 3 /4. In a longitudinal row on the cephalis there are 5 pores, in the second segment 6, and in the third segment 3 - 4. Surface rough. (Translated from Latin by E.M.R. and W.R.R.)]"
