Biology Type of larval development: planktotrophic, inferred from multispiral protoconch. [details]

Diagnosis Shell up to 30 mm, with a high conical spire and globose body whorl. Protoconch cyrtoconoid with about 3 whorls. Teleoconch of 7-8 convex whorls, with a sculpture of fine, regular spiral cords, broader than interspaces, and with flexuous axial folds which are rather swollen beneath the suture and make it undulated and channelled. Base of body whorl with a strong groove delimiting the outer part of the siphonal canal. Aperture rounded, the outer lip somewhat thickened externally although not forming a varix, inside with numerous denticles elongated in the spiral direction and alternating stronger and weaker. Parietal and columellar edges forming a callus with a raised edge; a distinct parietal plait present. Colour yellowish with a broad subsutural band of darker blotches; protoconch dark brown ; aperture white. [details]

Mediterranean only in the Alboran Sea and along the Algerian coast, moderately common in 50-200 m. Gorringe, Ampère and Seine seamounts, rare in 130-310 m.  [details]
