Original diagnosis:

"A species of Cyclonephelium which is roughly circular in outline but which possesses a left antapical projection. Ornament of a most distinctive nature is present around the dorsal and ventral periphery (mostly dorsal) and this takes the form of a punctate/microreticulate layer which is attached to the cyst by very short rods (approximately 1 ┬Ám in height). Local increases in ornament height are apparent above the left antapical bulge and to the right of this. Where the ornament height increases, the microreticulum becomes more open. Paratabulation is lacking but six precingular paraplates may be inferred from parasutural splits around the apical archeopyle margin. The parasulcus is offset to the left." - From Duxbury (1983, p. 32).
