As for the genus, individual cells averaging 5.6 μm in diameter (for 82 cells measured). Colonial aggregates form rinds up to 92 μm thick around exterior of oncolites. Table 1 summarizes pertinent morphologic characteristics.
Named for the distribution of the colony bordering the exterior of oncolites.
The fossiliferous outcrops occur 2,900 m below the lowest metazoan trace fossils, are younger than 1.7 b.y. and are correlated to the Apache Group of Arizona, bracketed between radiometric ages of 1.2 and 1.4 b.y.
