Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Shell up to 20 mm high, biconical. Protoconch relatively large, of 4 relatively convex whorls with oblique threads forming a delicate reticulate sculpture. Teleoconch of 6-7 shouldered whorls, with a blunt keel separated from the suture by a shallow depression. Subsutural zone sloping towards the keel and bearing fine spiral striae; the remainder of the surface with flattend, subequal spiral cords and with short oblique axial folds limited to the middle part of whorls. Outer lip simple, not thickened, curved in lateral view with a broad sinus on the adapical side. Colour of protoconch brown, of teleoconch buff with diffuminated brownish flames.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Eastern Atlantic, from Bay of Biscay to Morocco, and in the Azores, in 200-1500 m; Mediterranean. Gorringe, Josephine, Ampère and Seine seamounts, moderately common in 165-830 m. Records from the Western Atlantic are misidentifications of G. bairdi (Verrill & Smith, 1884), according to Bouchet & Warén (1980). [details]
