This is a marine species.
Frustules narrowly rectangular and slightly curved in girdle view. Valves lanceolate with sub-acute apices, 37–43 µm long and 6–7 µm wide. Two apically elongated chloroplasts lying against each side of the girdle. Raphe straight and central without a well-defined axial area. Cell wall extremely delicate, longitudinal and transapical striation not visible in light microscopy. Transapical striation 34–36 in 10 µm, longitudinal striation 42 in 10 µm. External raphe endings straight and slightly expanded at the centre of the valve, strongly deflected to one side at the poles. Internal raphe fissures open to one side of the raphe sternum except at the centre and near the apices. An accessory rib extends besides the raphe sternum throughout most of the valve, on the primary side. Internally the areolae are quadrate, arranged in regular rows. Externally, the valve appears covered by longitudinal strips, separated by slits parallel to the raphe and merging with a peripheral slit near the apices.
