Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
J. G. Donald 1895Shell conical, composed of more than five whorls. Whorls strongly angular below the middle, slightly angular above, just below the suture, flattened both above and below the strong angle. On the upper part of the whorl, about midway between the angle and the suture, there is a flat band, level with the surface, bounded on each side by a groove. This band probably represents a sinus in the outer lip. The lines of growth are strong and distinct; they curve backwards to the band above and forwards below, but are not discernible on the band itself. Surface smooth. Sutures deep. Base flattened. Mouth imperfectly preserved, subrhomboida], slightly longer than wide.
