The shells of this species have a rounded ovate shape which distinguishes them from other Victorian tellins. The exterior sculpture is of intersecting fine radial and concentric lines (striae) giving it a decussated appearance. Shells are white. Shell up to 5 cm across.
Like other bivalves in this family group, this species is a deposit feeder, feeding off small pieces of decaying seaweed and animals that settle on the sea floor.
In sand or mud areas.
Most states of Australia.
