In 1940, the American biologist Ralph V. Chamberlin described "Astrosoga rex", a new genus and species from Texas, while Willis J. Gertsch and Stanley Mulaik described "A.
", also from Texas. Both species of "Astrosoga " were transferred to "Eucteniza" in 2002.
Many taxonomic changes occurred in a 2013 revision by American biologists Jason Bond and Rebecca Godwin. Twelve new species were described, many named after nearby localities, indigenous peoples, or Mexican historic figures. Namesakes of other species include the nightclub Cabo Wabo of Cabo San Lucas, and a character from "Battlestar Galactica". Both "E. rex" and "E.
" were synonymized with "E. relata", and the previously described "E. atoyacensis" (Pickard-Cambridge's "Enrico mexicanus") was declared a dubious name: since it was originally described based on a juvenile specimen, it is unclear whether it represents a distinct species. Thus, as of 2013 a total of 14 valid species are recognized.
The shell has an irregularly fusiform shape. it is pallid, without colour markings. It is obtusely angular, posterior acuminated, anterior rather obliquely subconical. It resembles closely "Comitas
" , but is more compact in shape. The spire is less tapering, the siphonal canal is shorter and the rostrum is blunter.The spire is rather long and acute. It contains 10½ whorls. The first two are smooth, rounded and forming a papillary apex. The next two whorls are slightly convex and nearly smooth. The rest have the upper half slightly concave, with a rounded slightly tubercular ridge just below the suture. The lower are rather convex, furnished with a row of oblong nodules, or short stout costae (9 on the penultimate whorl). The whorls are crossed by oblique axial ribs, 10 on the first whorl (as preserved,possibly this is the 2nd), increasing to 11 (12) on the [body whor]]. They are very finely spirally striated throughout. The body whorl equals in length to the spire. It is obtusely angled. Its left side is obliquely sloping, the right side is rather convex. There is no rostrum. The nodules at the angles are produced downwards so as to form slightly oblique stout rounded ribs. The aperture is rather shor. The whitish columella is nearly straight, slightly rimate at the rostrum and covered by a thin callus which is somewhat thickened above. The outer lip is slightly arcuate. The siphonal canal is very short. The anal sinus is deep and moderately wide, situated at the angle of the whorl.
