Species / Anchura Newberryi
  • Anchura newberryi Meek, 1876

Original Description of Anchura? newberryi by Meek in Newberry, 1876, p. 129:

  • "Shell of medium size, thin, fusiform; spire moderately elevated; volutions six, distinctly convex, increasing rather rapidly in size; suture well defined: Surface ornamented by revolving lines, two of which, on the body-whorl, become so much larger than the others as to form small carinae. Of these two carinae, the upper only is seen on the second turn, where it is much reduced in size; and, on those above, it is not distinguishable from the other revolving lines. Marks of growth obscure; aperture unknown; lip extended into a long appendage, the form of which cannot be determined from the specimen examined."
