Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
K. Bandel 2006A protoconch with 5.5 whorls that is almost 1 mm high (KIEL, 2006, figs. 3, 11-3, 14). It is larger as within the species of the Procerithiidae and the modern Cerithiidae. The embryonic shell with 0.1 mm in diameter is succeeded by larval whorls with three spiral ribs on a somewhat flattened surface.
