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

Diagnosis Shell up to 10 mm high, with conical spire and rounded, inflated body whorl. Sculpture with elevated spiral cords, slightly unequal in size and narrower than interspaces, crossed by minute and numerous prosocline lamellae which override the cords. Peristome flaring in adult shells, with a distinct outer varix and with internal denticles elongated in the spiral direction. Columella with a strong denticle. Colour whitish with the inner nacre showing through, with vague brownish flames on specimens from shallower sites; inside of aperture nacreous.
Distinguished from Danilia tinei in having the axial lamellae minute and about three times more numerous, the whitish colour and the more inflated and more fragile shell, with more convex whorls.
