Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
K. Bandel 2007The Rimella-like shell has no callus canal as continuation of the posterior margin of its aperture. Ornament consists of axial ribs and fine spiral ribs with varices on the juvenile shell at irregular intervals. The aperture of the fully grown shell is simple and thickened with a low lobe at is anterior end and short wide siphonal canal. The protoconch is quite similar to that of Rimella Fissurella from the Eocene of the Paris Basin (Pl. 3/6).
