Contributor: Loren Bahls - May 2013
Length Range: 11.4-20.7 µm
Width Range: 2.9-4.4 µm
Striae in 10 µm: 25-30
Valves are narrowly lanceolate and moderately dorsiventral with rostrate apices that are deflected slightly ventrally. The dorsal margin is arched and the ventral margin is straight or weakly convex. The axial area is narrow, located 1/3 to 1/2 the distance from the ventral margin to the dorsal margin. The central area is very small and continuous with the axial area. Raphe branches are filiform and bowed, concave to the dorsal margin. Proximal raphe ends are unexpanded and deflected dorsally. Distal raphe fissures are hooked toward the ventral margin. Striae are weakly radiate.
