J. B. Knight 1945Conical, trochiform pleurotomarians with slightly convex sides and a flat, anomphalous base; whorls low and wide; the outer whorl-surface above the cord-like basal angle conforming closely to the general surface of the sides of the spire with only shallow, angular sutures separat-ing the outer whorl-faces of succeeding whorls; selenizone impressed below the gen-eral surface, and passing around the whorls about one-third the distance between su-tures above the lower suture, with strong, even lunulae; outer lip with shallow sinus; columeliar lip straight, reflexed; ornamenta-tion above the selenizone revolving and transverse lirae that cross without forming conspicuous nodes, below the selenizone finer revolving lirae and, on the cord-like basal angulation fine transverse lirae, fine transverse lirae dominant.
