M. Harzhauser 2004Small-sized, trochiform shells consisting of three spire whorls with an apical angle of about 110°. Suture hardly incised, separating convex whorls with rather flat adapical part. Six to seven strong spiral threads form the ornamentation of the whorls; another two threads with secondary intercalations appear on the base of the penultimate whorl where the body whorl is broken
