Margin of the disk simple, smooth, thick, without peculiar equatorial girdle. Both marginal spines cylindrical, about as long as the diameter of the disk, about twice as broad as a single pore. (Walls of the disk in the central part twice to three times as thick as in the peripheral part.)

Haeckel listed Sethostylus dicylindricus under the subgeneric name Sethostylium, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.
