Original Description
Shell nearly hemispherical, papillate, with slight sagittal stricture and semicircular internal ring. Basal plate with three large pores (sometimes, as in the figured specimen, with some small accessory peripheral pores). The other lattice-work with subregular circular pores. Apical horn shorter than the three basal feet, but of similar form, like an elegant ovate dimpled cone, spinulate, with a smooth spindle-shaped pedicle, about as long as the shell.

Shell 0.08 long, 0.1 broad; horn 0.06 long, feet 0.08 long.
