Species / Aporrhais Pesgallinae

Stromboidea


Original Description of Aporrhais pes-gallinae by Barnard, 1963, p. 67:

  • "Posterior spiniform process quite free from spire. Outer lip with two slender processes, the margin between the anterior one and the beginning of the canal slightly convex, but with scarcely any suggestion of an incipient lobe or denticle. Anterior canal tapering evenly, without flange-like expansion of the edge of the columellar callus. The 'webbing' between the claws much less extensive than in pes-pelicani or pes-carbonis. On peripheral whorl traces of a peripheral row of tubercles. On body whorl a peripheral row of tubercles which is also moniliform where it emerges from under the columellar callus, but is smooth on back of the shell; below this lira (on back of shell) about 9-10 lirae. 40 mm long."

Locus typicus: 26 23' S., 14 17' E. (-26.38333 , 14.28333), in 311 m on green mud. (off Hottentotspunt, Namibia)

Stratum typicum: recent
