This is a marine species.
Frustules naviculoid, narrowly rectangular and slightly curved in girdle view. Valves rhombic, 60-65 µm long and 17 µm wide. Two apically elongated chloroplasts lie against each side of the girdle. Raphe straight and central with very small central area. Transapical striae uniseriate and parallel, 17 in 10 µm, with the central two or three virgae thickened to form a pseudostauros. Longitudinal striation not resolvable with light microscopy, even under interference contrast, 25 in 10 µm. External raphe fissure straight, with slightly expanded, unilaterally deflected central endings and polar endings strongly deflected to same side. Internally the raphe fissures open to one side of the raphe sternum for most of their length, except at the centre and near the apices where they end in long helictoglossae. An accessory rib (axial costa) extends throughout most of the valve on the primary side of the raphe sternum, with a shorter rib (central bar) at the centre on the secondary side. The thickenings of the central virgae are continuous with the accessory rib. Areolae quadrate arranged in rows. Longitudinal slits, parallel to the raphe, merging with a peripheral slit near the apices on the outer side of the valve.
