If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

J. B. Knight 1941Small Conus-like gastropods with a short, turretted spire and subcylindrical body whorl; whorl profile between sutures flat and subhorizontal above an almost right-angled shoulder and flat and subvertical below it, below the line of suture, very gently arched and tapering gradually; no well-defined base; columella anomphalous; sutures rectangular; aperture very narrow and elongate, possibly with an anterior siphonal notch; columellar lip short, the columella seemingly with a strong columellar fold; parietal wall very long, probably, but not certainly, with a very thin inductura which may have extended well beyond the aperture; outer lip thin seemingly gently arched forward from the shoulder downward; nucleus not well known; a collarlike structure above the suture seemingly extending on the body whorl well beyond the aperture; ornamentation lacking though there is a faint suggestion of very fine revolving striae. The holotype with a little of the anterior extremity lost has 5J whorls and measures about 8J mm. in height and 4 mm. in width.
