(2002); it was recombined as Glabrocingulum grayvillensis by Rollins et al. (1979); it was recombined as Glabrocingulum (Glabrocingulum) grayvillensis by Batten (1995); it was recombined as Glabrocingulum grayvillense by Wagner (2017).

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. G. Norwood and H. Pratten 1855Shell small, being about half an inch in breadth and the same in length. Whorls five, flattened above; the body whorl rounded below. Spiral angle 102°. Shell covered with longitudinal lines, crossed by lines of growth, giving it the appearance of being garnished with small tubercles. The upper line of tubercles on each whorl, near the suture, is much more prominent than the others, forming a raised ornamental band. The band of the sinus is large, and separated from the inferior part by a furrow. Mouth sub-quadrangular; exterior lip sharp; columella lip thickened, the columella terminating below in a point.
B. S. Kues et al. 2002The turreted, low-spired shell possesses one or two nodose subsutural cords on the upper whorl surface, with several finer subnodose spiral lirae on the outer half of this surface. These are crossed by prosocline collabral lirae of similar size but closer spacing, and on well-preserved specimens faint, much finer spiral lirae cover the entire surface, including the nodes. The selenizone, situated on the outer margin of the upper whorl surface, just above the whorl shoulder, is narrow, relatively deep, and bordered by a single sharp lira on each side. The lower whorl surface and base of the shell has strong, widely spaced spiral cords, which are subnodose where crossed by closely spaced, sinuous collabral lirae. The umbilical region is not well preserved on any of the specimens but appears to have a thin inductural covering but no thickened callus, a feature separating G. grayvillense from some other species of this genus.
