Teleoconch of 7-8 convex whorls, with a sculpture of fine, regular spiral cords, broader than interspaces, and with flexuous axial folds which are rather swollen beneath the suture and make it undulated and channelled. Base of body whorl with a strong groove delimiting the outer part of the siphonal canal. Aperture rounded, the outer lip somewhat thickened externally although not forming a varix, inside with numerous denticles elongated in the spiral direction and alternating stronger and weaker.
