The wings are relatively thin walled compared to the center. Quite fragile, more often than not found in a broken state, with two components: (1) the two ‘wings’ joined; Together, about 55 μm in length, and about 33 μm in width; and (2) the double-walled center piece, sometimes filled with dark material.
