Biology Type of larval development: short planktonic, non-planktotrophic as usual in Vetigastropoda and Patellogastropoda [details]

Diagnosis Shell up to 15 mm long, with oval contour and elevated, conical profile, apex situated in the posterior third, never overhanging the posterior margin. Sculpture of numerous low radial ribs, alternating stronger and weaker, crossed by comarginal cordlets which are attenuated on the top of the ribs. Slit narrow and deep. Colour white. [details]

Moderately common on Gorringe, Josephine, Ampère and Seine seamounts, 96-335 m [details]

Type locality not specified [cited localities England and Algeria, the latter likely to correspond to a common Mediterranean species and not to the accustomed usage of the name fissura [details]

From other sources
Synonymy Piani (1984) has demonstrated that there is no reason to prefer the name E. reticulata Sowerby, 1813 over the older Patella fissura Linnaeus, 1758. [details]
