Original Description
Cephalis trilobate, with three ovate lobes in the sagittal plane, of nearly equal size, and two divergent cylindrical tubes conical at the base. An ascending apical tube on the apex of the occipital lobe and a descending sternal tube on the base of the frontal lobe. The middle lobe between the former distinctly exhibits in the apical view (fig. 20) the collar septum with the four cortinar pores. Thorax campanulate, larger than the cephalis and the truncate abdomen.

Length of the shell 0.11, breadth 0.06.
