Original description: Test multicyrtid, conical, with horn, usually with strictures at joints, final post-abdominal chamber closing, with large subsperical, latticed expansion, Cephalis conical or dome-shaped. Cephalis, thorax and abdomen sparsely perforate, covered by layer of microgranular silica. Post-abdominal chambers consisting of single layer of dense, small, tetragonal, pentagonal, or hexagonal pore frames. Pore frames regular to irregular in shape and size.
Original remarks:Lantus, n. gen., differs form Pseudoristolan. gen., by having a test with well-developed horn, strictures at joints, and smaller, less regular polygonal pore frames.
Etymology: Lantus is a name formed by an arbitrary combination of letters (ICZN, 1985, Appendix D, pt. VI, Recommendation 40, p. 201)
