The shell grows to a length of 9.5 mm. The white shell is slender. The whorls of the teleoconch are flattened, each with three spiral ribs, the two upper ones
. The body whorl has two plain ribs below the
ones, and three revolving ridges below the periphery, forming columellar folds. The aperture is produced below.
The height of the shell attains 25 mm. The small, conical shell is variegated. The nucleus is rosaceous. The six whorls are planate. The sutures are hardly impressed. The spire contains 3 regular,
riblets, the nodules whitish, and subdistant. The interstices are very elegantly rosy. The base of the shell contains 8 lirulae. These are scarcely
, and spotted with rosy.
It is nearly related to "Splendrillia woodsi" , but is distinguished by the long straight ribs—not
—and which continue to the suture, although bent by the sinus groove and by its
The shell is strongly sculptured, longitudinally and spirally. The color of the shell is brownish white, brown-banded at the suture, and in the middle of the body whorl. The
intersections of the sculpture are frequently brown-tipped.
This species differs from "Fusiturricula fusinella" by the obliquity of the ribs and the disparity in size between the peripheral spiral cords, which are quite equal and equally
in "F. fusinella".
The shell of this species is large, solid, thick and imperforate. The shape of the shell is obtusely conic. The spire is elevated. The whorls are flattened,
and carinated. The peristome is thin and continuous.
where they override the ribleis. On the base there are about 15 of these threads with somewhat wider interspaces. The aperture is rather narrow. The outer lip is sharp and flexuous. The anal sulcus is wide and shallow, halfway between the suture and the periphery. The columellar lip is smooth. The siphonal canal is rather Iong, straight, and open.
The shell has a very dark chocolate color. The whorls are longitudinally ribbed with the ribs terminating on a
periphery, above which the surface is smooth and slightly concave. The lower portion of the body whorl has revolving striae. The shell reaches a length of 22 mm.
The shell contains numerous whorls, convex, slightly angulated and noduled on the periphery. They are flexuously longitudinally ribbed below and cancellated by raised revolving lines. The suture is bordered by an obliquely
band. The color of the shell is yellowish or flesh-brown, sometimes narrowly dark-banded at the suture and base. The interior is yellowish.
The reddish brown shell shows a white narrow band on the periphery, and, on the body whorl, a second inferior band. It contains 12½ whorls, with obsolete flexuous longitudinal plications, crossed by revolving lines. These are
at the periphery, and less distinctly so inferiorly. The operculum has a subcentral nucleus.
G.W. Tryon correctly preserved the genus for smooth specimens with a short body whorl, long spire,
shoulder, no spiral sculpture, a wide, deep anal sulcus adjacent to the suture and, in the completely adult, a marked subsutural callus on the body.
This is a small highly-coloured, fusiform species, with a conspicuous, spiral, swollen,
angle just above the centre of the whorls. It contains eight whorls, of which two in the protoconch. The aperture has a square-ovate shape. The outer lip is thin. The sinus is wide but not deep. The siphonal canal is short.
The size of the shell varies between 4 mm and 8 mm. The sculpture, compared to "Dentistyla asperrima", is more strongly and exclusively
. A strong blunt tooth is prominent on the columella just within the aperture and above the base of the shell. The outer lip is lirate within.
The small fusiform shell contains 11 whorls (the superior ones are eroded), covered with a gray epidermis. Tlie lines of growth are rather strong and very flexuous, and on passing the delicate spiral lirae, except in the coneavity above the angle of the whorls and at the base of the body whorl, are delicately
. The last volution below the nodose periphery has about fifteen lirae, of which about six of the upper ones are
, the rest, around the anterior contracted portion, being simple and thread-like. The tubercles on the angle are about eighteen in number, and the lirae above it three or four. The aperture is small. The outer lip is thin. The columella is almost upright and shows a small callus. The siphonal canal is short.
The length of the shell varies between 12 mm and 24 mm. The shell is small, imperforate, and solid. Its color pattern is pale greenish buff or light pink, painted with very broad descending flames of an orange color on the upper portion of the whorls. The 4½ whorls are angulated on the periphery, and flattened above,The upper whorls are encircled below the angle with two ribs and the body whorl with five stout scabrously
ribs. Between these and the sutures are four or five smaller and closer ribs of a similar character, and on the base of the body whorl about eight ribs which are less
and scabrous than those above, the interstices being crossed by fine striae. The spire is somewhat elevated. The aperture is nearly circular and pearly within. The columella is thickened, terminating in a blunt callosity at the base.
The body whorl has a distinct peripheric keel. The sculpture consists of 5 to 6 low spiral threads, the lower and upper margins much elevated, especially the former. They are crossed by broad
radiate ribs, which, however, do not extend over the lower half of the whorl. These ribs are often obsolete. The suture is superficial, with a
border below. The false umbilicus is narrow and not very deep. The oblique aperture is rhomboidal. The outer and basal lip are a little convex, forming a sharp angle where they meet. The oblique columella is slightly concave. It has an almost imperceptible posterior fold, but the anterior portion is nearly smooth. The axial cavity is small and smooth. The color of the shell is white, buff with pink or oblique brownish purple stripes or spots. The flat base of the shell is white with interrupted pink, subequal spiral lines.
The size of an adult shell varies between 20 mm and 65 mm. The diameter is 16 mm. The whorls are angulated in the middle and
on the angle. Above it the surface is smooth, below the nodules are continued as flexuose wrinkles or ribs, becoming evanescent towards the base of the aperture. The color of the shell is yellowish brown, with usually one or two darker bands.
The size of the shell varies between 8 mm and 65 mm. The shell has four to seven varicose,
, encircled by prominent cord-like, raised ribs. These are alternately smaller, the smaller ones minutely scabrous. The varices are sometimes frondose, sometimes lamellated, occasionally appressed. Occasionally the larger revolving ribs thickly overlap the varices, forming a succession of elongated nodules The color of the shell is yellowish-brown and whitish within.
The height of the shell attains 3½ mm, its diameter also 3½ mm. The shell has a globose-conoidal shape and is profoundly umbilicated. It contains 4½ convex whorls with a short and obtuse spire. It is spirally lirated. The sutures are canaliculated. The body whorl is ventricated and has a slight angle. The aperture is rounded. There is a thick
ridge bordering the umbilicus.
and more conspicuously
. The whorls are rounded, while the apex is a little blunt. The suture is distinct, not channelled. The base of the shell is rounded. The shell lacks an umbilicus. The columella is nearly straight, with a strong tooth near its base. The rounded aperture is oblique, a little descending above, with six or eight stout lirae ending in tooth-like nodules. The body shows a moderate layer of nacreous callus.
