The size of the shell varies between 3 mm and 9 mm. The imperforate or very minutely perforate shell has a conical. The 7 whorls are a little convex. The earlier buff, following pale buffish-ashen, is ornamented with obscure maculations or zones of chestnut. The shell is obliquely striate, spirally lirate with 6 subequal lirae on the penultimate whorl. The body whorl is a little convex above, carinated in the middle, convex beneath and provided with 7–8 concentric, white-and-brown articulated lirae. The aperture is rhomboid. The columella is subtruncate below.[2]

It is not unlikely that fossil remains of two other Jujubinus species, Jujubinus exasperatus (Pennant, 1777) and Jujubinus striatus (Linnaeus, 1758), are washed ashore along the Belgian coast.
