Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Type of larval development: planktotrophic, inferred from multispiral protoconch. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Shell up to 25 mm high, rather broad compared to others in the genus. Protoconch large (620-660 ¼m), with 4-5 whorls and a microsculpture of tenuous, even spiral striae. Teleoconch with 8-9 very convex whorls, nearly disjunct as if they were holding together by the axial ribs, and a very deep suture; with about 11-14 slightly prosocline lamellar axial ribs per whorl on which there a angulose projection next to the suture and projecting above it; interspace with a very delicate spiral microsculpture, best visible on juveniles. Colour of protoconch brown, of teleoconch white.

The West African Epitonium trochiforme von Maltzan, 1885 is similar in size and shape but lacks a spiral sculpture between ribs. [details]
