Description

Shell small, solid, cask-shaped, perforate at either end. Colour milk-white zoned with alternate opaque and semitransparent, spiral bands. Sculpture: nineteen sharp, narrow, deep, spiral grooves are interposed between broad flat-topped ribs. Under a high magnification the ribs are seen to be set with tine longitudinal grains, whose ends undulate the grooves. Summit flat, excavate within, spirally descending to a narrow perforation. Base with a comparatively large umbilicus, which at the penultimate whorl contracts to a similar narrow hole. Aperture regularly arched. Columella subdentate below. Height 2,35mm.; breadth 1,55 mm.
