Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
F. M'Coy 1844Obtusely conical; spire of three or four volutions ; whorls plane above, rounded below; band prominent, flattened, situated above the centre of the volutions; surface smooth.

This much resembles the P. abdita, Phil., in shape, but is distinguished by the upper portion of the whorls being tabulated, and the band, instead of being subsutural, as in that shell, is placed unusually high on the volutions; the surface is quite smooth. Length six and a half lines, width eight lines.
