Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
K. Bandel 2006Faloriella has a lowly conical, disc-like shell with flattened whorls and a wide conical umbilicus. Two keels with a furrow between them feature the sides. A row of tubercles surround the umbilicus and the base has fine spiral lines. The aperture is angular in juveniles is angular later it is round and oblique. The protoconch resembles that of Ladinula. The protoconch and the first teleoconch whorls are highly conical, later whorls are low. The aperture of the adult shell is rounded, thickened and a little detached (ZARDINI, 1978, pl. 9, figs. 3–5; BANDEL, 1992, pl. 2, figs. 3–5, 7).
