Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editordescription revised (Houart, 2002): Shell with 4 axial varices on each whorl, usually with P1 (corresponding to the anal tube), P2-P7 shallow or obsolete, ending as short, blunt, or long spines at intersection of axial varices. Spines open, occasionally joined by smooth or scabrous webbing. Shoulder spine usually longest. Rounded, ventrally sealed anal tube originates from adapical spiral cord, usually nearest to preceding varix but not connected with the varix, forming an angle of 30-90° with axis of shell. Absence of partition connecting shoulder apertural spine and last teleoconch whorl. Edge of aperture erect, forming entire peristome. Siphonal canal fluted, sealed, occasionally with broadly open or narrow, sealed ADP . [details]
