Length Range: 6.5-15.0 µm
Width Range: 2.7-3.6 µm
Striae in 10 µm: 35-40

Description

Valves are linear-elliptical-lanceolate with rounded slightly drawn-out ends.ends. Axial area is narrowly linear. Central area is elliptical or round, usually asymmetrically expanded to one side of the valve. Striae are radiate in the middle, slightly convergent at apices, 35-40 in 10 μm. Areolae transersely ellitpical, covered by external hymens, approximately 45 in 10 mm. Raphe is filiform, straight or very slightly curved, with slightly expanded external proximal endings.
