Diagnosis Test free, large, tubular, up to 8 mm in length and up to 0.34 mm in diameter, open at one end only; wall relatively thick, approximately equal to the internal cavity diameter, of fine to coarse silt-sized quartz grains forming several agglutinated layers, with a single large tasmanitid prasinophyte algal cyst attached at the proximal end of the test, weakly to firmly cemented particles forming a porous to compact wall, surface roughly finished, commonly with pyrite particles in the vicinity of the tasmanitid; aperture at the open end of the test, irregular in outline. U. Devonian (Fammenian); USA: Ohio. (Loeblich & Tappan, 1987, Foraminiferal Genera and Their Classification) [details]
