This is a common and widely distributed species in the late
Carboniferous and early Permian of European Russia.
The small ribs, small number of narrow spines and combination of
strongly curved juvenile shell and little curved adult shell are
typical of this genus. The blister-like swelling shown in the closeup
view of the shell is a spine base and only a few other spine bases
can be seen on the shell.
