Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Type of larval development: short planktonic, non-planktotrophic as usual in Vetigastropoda and Patellogastropoda. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Shell conical, 10-15 mm high, with tiny protoconch of less than one whorl and teleoconch up to 7-8 whorls. Sculpture on spire whorls of beaded spiral cords as wide as interspaces; one cord running just above the suture and continued on peripheral angle of last whorl is duplicate with adapical component strongly beaded and abapical one less so. Abapical surface imperforate, slightly convex and bearing 6-10 spiral cords, as wide as interspaces and not beaded. Shell colour whitish to yellowish, nacre showing through in some cases, broad brown flames starting from suture on early spire whorls; later whorls usually with cords and peripheral rim white articulated by white and brown streaks; abapical cords also articulated by smaller white and brown flecks.
This species resembles the mainland Clelandella miliaris but differs consistently in that the periphery of the last whorl is bounded by a double spiral cord contrary to C. miliaris which has a swollen peripheral rim covered by many distinct spiral threads and to C. perforata Gofas, 2005 which has distinct, crowded spirals on the abapical side of the keel. Compared to C. miliaris, there is a sharper difference in sculpture between the adapical surface of whorls, with strong beads, and the abapical surface, with the cords hardly beaded at the intersection with the growth lines. The living animal is typical of Clelandella.
