Balticoporella is a large, ramose form with irregularly subcylindrical branches. Zooecial walls are crenulated in endozone and unevenly thick in exozone. Diaphragms common in exozone, and hemiphragms are common and have bulbous tips (Balticoporella is the only genus from the type Cincinnatian with hemiphragms). Mesozooids are sparse, and styles are absent.
