Original Description
Shell smooth, with slight collar stricture. Length of the two joints = 3: 4, breadth = 3: 4. Cephalis large, ovate, with a conical horn of the same length, small scarce pores, and an internal frontal septum, composed of two crossed beams, a vertical and a horizontal. Thorax little larger than the cephalis, ovate, with irregular, small and scarce pores. (The two figures of Ehrenberg are either incomplete - in Lithopera amblystauros, the cephalic horn, and in Lithopera oxystauros, the basal part of the thorax, being broken off - or they belong to different Botryodea).

Cephalis 0.03 diameter, thorax 0.04 diameter.
