Type locality Stated by Sykes (1911) as "Porcupine" 1869 sta. 65, which is North of the Hebrides, 61º10'N, 02º21'W, 345 fathoms; the lectotype in USNM is reported (Bouchet & Warén, 1985, and current USNM calalogue) to be from sta. 55 which is 60º04'N, 06º19'W, 605 fathoms. [details]

Distribution Eastern Atlantic, from the Faroes to southwestern Ireland; in 300-1000 m; Strait of Gibraltar, in 362-526 m; Gorringe seamount, moderately common in 155-1040 m; Ampère and Seine seamounts, rare in 235-325 m. This apparently disjunct distribution is puzzling, but no appreciable morphological difference can be detected. [details]

Biology  Type of larval development: direct (non-planktotrophic) inferred from paucispiral protoconch. [details]

Diagnosis Shell up to 20 mm high, solid, with 5-6 moderately convex whorls and a conical spire, the last whorl about 70% of total height. Protoconch of one smooth, mucronate whorl. Teleoconch with a variably developed sculpture consisting of spiral cords and threads, and slightly flexuous or straight axial folds. There are usually three cords on the early spire whorls, rather flat and as broad as the interspaces, later the second-order spiral threads are intercalated; the main spiral cords tend to form small knobs at their intersections with the axial folds, which are narrower than the interspace and may be wanting on part or whole of the spire. Body whorl somewhat constricted around the canal, which is not delimited by a ridge. Aperture oval, merging into a broad and short siphonal canal; outer sip slightly thickened, smooth inside; parietal and columellar edge appressed, forming a thin callus which hardly extends over the previous whorl. Colour whitish with diffuse, pale brown flames and blotches. [details]

Distribution Eastern Atlantic, from the Faroes to southwestern Ireland; in 300-1000 m; Strait of Gibraltar, in 362-526 m; Gorringe seamount, moderately common in 155-1040 m; Ampère and Seine seamounts, rare in 235-325 m. This apparently disjunct distribution is puzzling, but no appreciable morphological difference can be detected. [details]
