Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. Szabo 1983Fusiform shell with moderately high spire, convex whorls and deep suture. The periphery is rounded, the base is concave along the columella. The aperture is axially elongated, with a connected rather long siphonal canal. In the parietal and columellar region a thin callus, appearing in a narrow zone, may occur. The ornament consists of strong collabral ribs or folds, and spiral cords and threads. The intersections of the two differently directed ornamental elements may bear tiny tubercles. The shell-structure and the embryonal shell are unknown.
