They are either clearly formed and bent downward, or not fully formed, in which case the shell takes the form of a trapezium. Fundus is slightly pointed. The pseudostome is large, its edge is uneven due to different-sized sand grains located along the border of the hole. Test covered with mineral grains, cusps of diatoms, cysts, plates of other types of root-knives. The xenosomes are tightly packed, the surface of the test is uneven.
