The sutures are straight and deep. The studied specimen is a pseudomorph which does not preserve its ornament. The body whorl is more than half the height of the shell. It tapers anteriorly in the form of a conical beak. The aperture is oval and extends anteriorly in the form of a long canal. The outer lip is angular at the edge of the carina."
