Small unarmoured cells, oval in outline, 19-26 microns long, and 16-22 microns wide. Epicone hemispherical and notched at the apex. Hypocone hemispherical. Sulcus shallow and wide, invading the epicone as a finger-like projection. Ventral pore and above and to the left of the sulcal extension. Cingulum displaced approximately 25% of the cell length. Apical groove short and straight, extending only briefly onto the dorsal side of the epicone. Nucleus large and anterior. Several chloroplasts distributed irregularly through the cell periphery, with individual pyramidal pyrenoids. Amphiesmal plug-like structures in hexagonal configuration not detected.
