Original Description
Cephalis multilobate, with four divergent cylindrical tubes, which are cylindrical, obliquely trancate at the mouth, and correspond in position to the four typical spines of Cortina; an ascending apical tube and three descending basal tubes (an odd candal and two paired pectoral). The helmet-shaped occipital lobe is about as large as the frontal half of the cephalis, which is divided into three pairs of smaller pyriform lobes. Thorax subspherical, about as large as the cephalis and half as large as the inflated abdomen. Pores very scarce and small.

Length of the shell 0.15, breadth 0.08.
