Description. Test pyriform in broad lateral view, laterally compressed, with a pair of hollow horns protruding, one on either side of the neck one-third of the distance from the pseudostome to the fundus. Test almost transparent or slightly yellowish – brownish, composed of small oval particles probably predated from small euglyphids. Dimensions: L = (195) 220 – 264 (270) µm, B (between the ends of the lateral horns) = (110) 130 – 150 (169) µm, B (of the main body) = 90 – 125 µm, horn length = 25 – 59 µm. Pseudostome = 40 – 55 µm, slightly curved in broad lateral view.
