Notes 
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 high with rather high spire and rounded body whorl. Protoconch small, distinctly cyrtoconoid with 2.5 smooth whorls. Teleoconch of 6-7 comvex whorls, with a sculpture of regular spiral cords, broader thn interspaces, and of axial folds which become distinctly flexuous on the body whorl. Aperture bordered externally with a strong varix forming a rim, normally unique - not repeated at earlier growth stages on the spire. Inner side of outer lip bearing ca. 10 denticles, elongated in the spiral direction. Parietal edge of aperture forming a very thin, appressed callus, with a distinct adapical denticle, continued into a thicker columellar callus with a slightly raised edge. Base of body whorl with a groove delimiting the outer part of the siphonal canal.
Colour extremely variable, with distinct combinations of brown, black, yellowish or orange hues, most often with a paler band on abapical part of spire whorls and periphery of body whorls, else arranged in bands or in spiral series of blotches, or uniform. Aperture white with a highly diagnostic black blotch inside the siphonal canal.
