From editor or global species database
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 15 mm but usually smaller. Protoconch with four smooth whorls. Teloconch with 7-8 convex whorls and moderately deep suture, with 17-22 thin ribs per whorl, sometimes forming a blunt angle at a distance from the suture; interspaces smooth. Protoconch whitish to brownish, teleoconch white.

Ths species may be difficult to distinguish from the southern European E. pulchellum (Bivona, 1832) which differs in having more crowded ribs, up to 30 per whorl, and in being broader at the same height.
