This is a marine species.
Cells ellipsoidal, 18-25 microns long and 13-19 microns wide, a little dorsoventrally flattened. Epicone and hypocone hemispherical, with conspicuous slit-like ventral pore above the sulcus. Cingulum shallow and wide, displaced approximately 1/3 of the cell length. Sulcus narrow with a clearly visible tube-shaped structure in the intercingular region. Sulcal extension into the epicone an inconspicuous fold. Apical groove linear, originating parallel to the level of the apical margin of the cingulum and extending to halfway down the dorsal epicone. Many chloroplasts arranged peripherally into bands, in spiral on the epicone, containing internal pyrenoids. Nucleus large and central, closer to the dorsal surface.
Environmental water temperatures: from 8.95ºC to 19.6ºC.
