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 25 mm high, elongate fusiform, quite solid. Protoconch of little more than three whorls, distinctly cyrtoconoid, with the two first whorls smooth except for a double suprasutural cord, the last whorl bearing in addition numerous curved axial riblets. Teleoconch of 6-7 whorls. Spire whorls moderately convex, with ca. 10 strong, very slightly prosocline axial folds overrun by spiral cords; three major spiral cords on teleoconch spire whorls, forming acute knobs at intersection with axial folds, the adapical cord rather distant fron the suture and making the profile of whorls somewhat angular. Body whorl with a rather short, oblique, strongly tapering siphonal canal, covered with very attenuated spiral cords. Aperture oval, merging abapically into the siphonal canal. Outer lip somewhat thickened internally and bevelled to a sharp edge. Colour of protoconch dark brown; teleoconch pure white.

This species differs from Fusinus bocagei (Fischer, 1882) by the subsutural slope, less definite cords forming sharper knobs over the folds, the markedly smaller, more oblique and more tapering siphonal canal, by the more contrasted dark protoconch over the white shell, and by the more definite and duplicate suprasutural thread on the protoconch.
