  1. Vlaves trullate
  2. Apices broadly rounded
  3. Striae count variable across valve

Valves broadly trullate, with broadly rounded apices. Longitudinal lines of are positioned approximately one-half the way between the axial area and margin. The striae density varies across the valve: 8-12 in 10um in the center valve, 12-14 in 10 um at the headpole, 13-16 in 10 um at the footpole.
