Taxonomy Briefly first described from very small specimens and previously considered an uncertain species, but Kupriyanova et al (2015) note that "In fresh material a very diagnostic feature is the intensely red band of single lensed ocelli in the ventral edge of the opercular ampulla immediately below the calcareous endplate" They note the operculum can be flat but more often has 10–20 radiating ridges. Straughan originally had illustrated the ridges without text comment beyond that the operculum was 'ridged' [details]
