Original Description: Test about 0.15-0.2mm at its maximum diameter, comprising about 2-3 whorls coiled in a low trochospire. There are 5-6 chambers in each of the penultimate and last whorls. The spiral side is almost flat or slightly convex and the intercameral sutures are moderately depressed, forming angles of about 130-140 degrees at the periphery of the test. The chambers are symmetrical and increase in size gradually with growth, they are typically subglobular to slightly depressed (about 7) as high as long when viewed from the spiral side) in the last whorl, although in some the first 1-2 chambers in the last whorl may be more strongly depressed (about half as high as long). The umbilicus is broadly open and the aperture is a narrow slit. Perforation cones are present on chambers of the last whorl.
