Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Type of larval development: short planktonic, non-planktotrophic [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Shell 10-12 mm long, with apex situated at 1/4 from anterior end but not overhanging and not curled up. Outer surface smooth except for growth lines. Colour pink with blurry darker ray and indistinct whitish blotches.

Shells of this species may easily be confused with the pulmonate Williamia gussonii (Costa, 1829), which differs in having a more curved profile, with the apex commonly curled up towards the anterior edge and displaying a small spiral protoconch which is never conserved in adult Tectura. The colour is also different, more brownish in Williamia with more distinct rays and no whitish blotches. The animals are markedly different, Tectura with slender cephalic tentacles and Williamia with broad, fringe-like lappets instead. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Eastern Atlantic, from Svalbard and Norway to Morocco, and the Mediterranean; also Canary Is., Madeira and the Azores, (from shore to ca. 50 m). Gorringe, Ampère and Seine seamounts (moderately common in 70-325 m), Josephine seamount (rare in 200-222 m, probably subfossil) [details]
