Inverted bell-shaped body with peristomial disc held forward when swimming. Cilia on peristome wind anticlockwise around the apical region. Aboral end without stalk, suckers etc. but with a spine. Body covered with 2 to 4 rings of long conical ectoplasmic processes. Most easily mistaken for Astylozoon which does not possess ectoplasmic processes.
