Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus Examination of the spiral sculpture has revealed a cancellated sculpture (alse see Reeve, 1849, pl. 7, sp. 32 "with minute longitudinal striae"). All three specimens show a backwards folded lip at the columellar side. These two features could possibly indicate this species is not a turritellid, and could lead to a potential relationship with species of Eglisia. Further examinations as to the before mentioned relationship and a possible status for this species are currently ongoing. Similar sculpture has been observed in the type samples of Turritella fultoni Melvill, 1897 and Turritella illustris Melvill, 1904. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material 1 sample containing 3 specimens, NHMUK 20140079. The largest specimen (96 mm x 24,2 mm) appears to be Reeve's figured specimen. The other two specimens are clearly conspecific (Measurements resp. 91,8 mm x 24,6 mm and 87,65 mm x 23,3 mm). [details]
