Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
L. R. Saul and W. P. Popenoe 1993Rather slender fusiform shells with a spire about half total shell height. Whorls posteriorly constricted to a roughened subsutural collar. Sculpture usually dom- inated by strong collabral transverse ribs; spiral sculpture well developed on basal slope, less frequently on periphery. Aperture notched posteriorly, siphonal canal of moderate length and slightly inclined to left. Inner lip callus thin; columella with a strong plait anterior to one or two weaker folds (SOHL, 1964:205).
