The shell in this species is 2.75 to 3.5 mm long, white to off-white, usually rather obese, with 3 to 3.5 teleoconch whorls. The body whorl is straw-coloured in some, and in this case there is a narrow white band below the suture, which is somewhat channeled; in many specimens the shell is entirely white. The aperture is narrow and sinuous, with a raised parietal edge and many fine labial teeth. The protoconch is the one strongly coloured part of the shell, and is generally reddish-brown at the apex with a moderate mid-whorl carina. It has 2.75 to 3 whorls.
This species was collected only at Station 5, in sediments at 3 m depth.
