Original Description: Test a low trochospire; spiral side flat or slightly concave, of two or three whorls, with about eight chambers in later whorls; chambers initially reniform and slightly depressed, becoming subglobular with growth. Intercameral sutures are subradial and distinctly but not deeply depressed on both the spiral and umbilical sides. The umbilicus has a breadth equal to about 20% of the test diameter; it is open and shallow. The aperture is a very low slit extending from the umbilicus to the periphery of the preceding whorl; it is furnished with a narrow porticus which broadens rapidly into a subtriangular flap at its posterior end. Relict apertures and their portical flaps are visible in the umbilicus for about half of the last whorl; the portical flaps are separate and not fused distally. The surface of the test is smooth, and not muricate; it is uniformly microperforate; the external diameters of the microperforations vary from about 0.008 mm on the umbilical side to about 0.0 mm on the spiral side.
