Biology Type of larval development: direct (non planktotrophic) denoted by paucispiral protoconch.  [details]

Diagnosis Shell 2.6- 2.8 mm high, with protoconch of 1.25 whorl and teleoconch of 3.5 whorls, Protoconch smooth, teleoconch with a sculpture of acute, widely separated axial ribs, and spiral cords. Two spiral cords on spire whorls, the most prominent forming projecting spines at its intersection with the axial ribs; the second one indistinct, situated midway between the stronger cord and the suture. Outer lip with a thick rim on which the stronger cord of the spire abuts and makes a slight projection, smooth inside. Shell entirely white, translucent.
Specimens from the Great Meteor seamount are smaller and differ consistently from those collected on Hyères seamount in that the spiral cords on the spire are rather even in size. [details]

Distribution Great Meteor and Hyères seamounts, endemic, very common in 330-480 m. [details]

Type locality Hyères seamount (31º23.2'N, 28º53.5'W, 480 m). [details]
