General environment
This is a freshwater species.

Cells are ellipsoidal (15.0–17.5 × 8.0–9.5 µm) and are covered with domed scales each bearing a bristle. The scales (3.7–3.9 × 1.7–2.0 µm) are tripartite with a small and smooth dome. The shield is marked with small papillae, which are regularly spaced and arranged in rows. Distinct base plate pore or occasionally two pores are situated in the proximal area of the shield at the base of the V-rib. This area is mostly devoid of papillae. Anterior submarginal ribs are well developed. The posterior and anterior flanges are smooth, the posterior flange is bordered with a smooth upturned rim. The rear scales are smaller than the body scales (ca. 2.5 × 1.3 µm). Bristles are 4.1–7.3 µm long, smooth, slightly curved and pointed. Cysts were not observed.
