Description

Scale Bar = 10 micrometers.

This is a large species with punctate and irregular striae. The areolae form distinct lines surrounding the axial area. Striae are radiate and apices are rounded. Axial area narrows near proximal raphe ends. Central area is asymmetrical extending to margin on one side and distal raphe ends deflect in the opposite direction. This species is commonly found in highly saline waters.
