From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBiology Type of larval development: long planktotrophic (teleplanic), inferred from multispiral protoconch with well developed protoconch II. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDiagnosis Shell up to 28 mm high, with a rather high spire, characteristically flattened along an axis perpendicular to the aperture. Protoconch with 3 whorls, the protoconch I less than one whorl with a frosted surface, the protoconch II with a conspicuous sculpture of axial ribs and spiral cords, both narrower than the interspaces and forming a regular lattice. Teleoconch with 5-6 rounded whorls; Sculpture of low, subequal spiral cords, as broad as the interspaces, with low and narrow axial ribs forming small knobs at their intersection with the cords. Varixes situated along the broadest section of the shell, moderately thick, repeated after a little more than half a whorl so that they are slghtly and regularly offset along the spire, overrun by the spirals. Aperture oval; outer lip faintly fluted inside; parietal and columellar edge forming a continuous callus, the parietal edge with a small but well-marked denticle, the columella faintly tuberculate. Siphonal canal open, moderate in length. Shell colour very light tan to whitish.  [details]
