Gastropoda - Rostellariidae
It was recombined as Chedevillia stewarti by Squires and Advocate (1986) and Savazzi (1988).
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.
|B. L. Clark 1942||Shell medium in size, fusiform in outline, apex acute, with 9 or 10 gently convex whorls; sutures slightly appressed; surface sculptured by numerous fine, closely spaced spiral lines, also by a series of fine longitudinal ribs, which are more numerous and finer on the posterior whorls of the spire than on the penultimate and body whorls of the adult specimens; these ribs a short distance below the suture on the body whorl of the adult specimens stand out more prominently and might be described as elongate nodes. Aperture elongate ovate, somewhat constricted, lying in an oblique position to the axis of the shell. Outer lip bordered by a broad, somewhat irregular flange, which usually extends from the anterior end of the canal to the apex and, when fully developed, as shown on the holotype, may be bordered by a fairly heavy, broad, low ridge. The fine spiral lines of the whorl extend out onto the flange; on the inner side of the flange posterior to the body whorl, similar to that on the genus Rimella, is a narrow open posterior canal, which extends up to the apex. Inner lip covered by a callus, which is heavier near the anterior end. Anterior canal short, slightly twisted to the right. All of the specimens at hand are plaster casts of external molds made in the field.|
