Test irregular in form, in a low trochospiral coil, early chambers small and subglobular, then rapidly enlarging, becoming radially elongate and tapering distally, chambers of the final whorl clavate, the final one or two chambers commonly with two bulbous projections, one on each side of the median plane, sutures distinct, depressed; wall calcareous, perforate, surface smooth, pitted or hispid; aperture interiomarginal and equatorial, with a narrow bordering lip, final chamber may have an aperture at each side of the median plane.

Test small, with early low trochospiral stage, later nearly planispiral, early chambers globular, later ones radially elongate and laterally compressed, one or more elongate tubulospines extending from the midline of each chamber on the periphery, biumbilicate, sutures depressed; wall calcareous, very finely perforate, optically radial, surface slightly hispid; aperture a low interiomarginal and equatorial arch bordered by a distinct lip, part of the lateral extensions of the aperture into the umbilicus may remain as relict apertures.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Campanian Stage (72.05-83.64Ma, top in Campanian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database

Plot of occurrence data:

NB Plotting of Neptune data has been disabled on the Mesozoic pages because the dataset is both small and badly affected by a few sites with erroneous age models (our obs Huber, Petrizzo, Young, Nov 2016). The data can still be viewed via the range plottertool - tools menu.
