Taxonomy Monterosato (1914) figured the holotype from Calcara's collection and distinguished as separate species the fossil Danilia otaviana (Cantraine, 1835) and the two Recent D. tinei and D. horrida (Costa, 1861) = costellata (Costa, 1861), followed in this by Palazzi & Villari (2001). The fossil species is quite convincingly distinguished by a globose shape and much finer sculpture in which the spiral elements clearly dominate. The holotype of D. tinei is also globose but has a coarse sculpture with nodose cords, whereas the common form (including that on photographs herein) should go to D. costellata if two species are really to be separated. This is a topic that requires further research. [details]

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 body whorl. Sculpture very characteristic with elevated spiral cords, unequal in zize and narrower than interspaces, crossed by thin, prosocline lamellae which form knobs where overriding 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. Background colour greyish with broad brown flames, inside of aperture nacreous. [details]

Distribution Eastern Atlantic, from Norway to Morocco, also on the island of Madeira, generally 100-300 m. Gorringe, Josephine, Seine and Ampère seamounts (moderately common from 129 to 335 m)
