Original Description
All rings of the disk, or a part of them, not concentric, spirally convoluted, of equal breadth, connected by numerous irregular, interrupted radial beams, the number of which increases from the centre. (In one marginal view of the disk, Pl. 42, fig. 9, the disk seemed to be composed of seven parallel chambered plates in the central part, and five similar plates in the peripheral part.) Pores irregular, roundish, three on the breadth of each ring. Three marginal spines long and thin, cylindrical (as in Staurodictya cruciata, Pl. 42, fig. 4), longer than the diameter of the disk, and half as thick as one ring.

Diameter of the disk (with nine rings) 180µm; breadth of each ring 10µm; pores 2 to 4µm.
