This is a freshwater species.
The cell shape is ovoid and slightly dorso-ventrally flattened. The epi- and hyposome are hemispherical, the latter with a minute antapical indentation. The cingulum is median and not displaced. The sulcus, which is narrow and shallow, does not reach the antapex. It extends about 2/3 onto the episome and continues into a 'fishhook- shaped' apical groove. The rounded nucleus is situated centrally and is slightly premedian. The cell contains numerous greenish-brown chloroplasts that radiate towards the centre of the cell. No eyespot is present. Division cysts and cells in pairs were occasionally observed. Length: 31-36 µm, width: 28-31 µm.
