A. Kouchinsky et al. 2009nabarites species having slowly expanding tubes, with internal moulds expressing three rounded lobes separated by shallow grooves (Figs 2A & 6B). Growth lines in the grooves often curve towards the aperture.

Description. Irregularly curved, slowly expanding internal moulds with tri-fold transverse profiles. Three rounded lobes are separated by narrow and shallow, but distinct, grooves. In some specimens, growth lines in the grooves curve towards the aperture (Fig. 6A & C). Some possibly preserve remnants of phosphatised walls (Fig. 6C, H & J).
