|A. G. Beu 2010||Cabestana is a distinctive genus of Ranellidae, with a shell somewhat resembling those of species of Monoplex, but with a narrow central radular tooth, not the conspicuously wide one of Cymatium and closely related genera, and with a short, smooth, turbiniform protoconch as in many species of Sassia, not the tall, multiwhorled, planktotrophic protoconch of Cymatium. Cabestana seems much more nearly related to Sassia than to Cymatium.|
