Description

Shell whitish, slender conical. Embryonic whorls helicoid, measuring 250-300 pm in diameter. Teleoconch consisting of four to five flat whorls, separated by a moderately incised suture. Growthlines opisthocline, sometimes forming axial folds resembling faint axial striae. There is only a rather vague spiral micro-sculpture. Outer lip straight, smooth inside. An umbilicus is lacking. A tooth or fold is absent.

Size

Heigth 2.0-2.7 mm, Width 0.7 - 0.8 mm ; Holotype 2.7 x 0.8 mm.

Interchangeable taxa

Eulimella vanderlandi spec. nov. reminds of E. acicula (Philippi, 1836) because of the spiral microsculpture, which is less prominent, however. The growthlines are opisthocline instead of slightly prosocline; the embryonic whorls are smaller than in E. acicula.
