Original Description

"Test small, circular, about 0.13 mm diameter, planispirally evolute, consisting of about three whorls; chambers subglobular to slightly ovate, inflated, increasing gradually in size. Equatorial periphery very lobulate, later chambers very evolute and tending to become uncoiled. Aperture low, equatorial, subcircular, with an extended lip. Umbilicus wide and shallow. With low magnification, chambers are polished, somewhat glassy and very finely perforate, containing sparingly distributed small spines. Some specimens are rather hispid."
