Philippi describes Chenopus desciscens

  • Original Description of Chenopus desciscens by Philippi, 1844, p. 185:
    • "Ch. testa turrita, exilissime perforata; anfractib. rotundatis, superioribus obsoletissime et tenuissime oblique plicatis, ultimo quadricarinato, labro (in 5? digitos diviso?)."
  • is treated here as a synonym for fossil Aporrhais serresiana

Comment Philippi, 1844, p. 185:

  • "Rarissimus; fragmentum unum Panormi, altera duo in valle Lamati Calabriae inveni, maximum apice et labro laesum."
  • "Testa 12´´´ alta fuisse videtur. Anfractus superiores aequaliter convexi, striis elevatis arcuatis confertissimis (circa 40), striisque transversis longe minus eminentibus circa 11-20 lente quaerendis sculpti sunt. In penultimo nascuntur carinulae duae, ibique costellae longitudinales in nodulos eriguntur, in ultimo carinae quatuor valde distinctae adsunt, supremi duae exquisite nodulosae, ultima laevis, et costellae prorsus evanuerunt. Digitus supremus subrectus spira brevior fuisse videtur. Tota testa umbilico angustissimo aciculari perforata est. - Summa affinitas cum Ch. paradoxo Ph. (Beiträge zur Kenntniss der Tertiärverst. des nordw. Deutschl. p. 24.) in propatulo est, sed in hoc carinae nodulos conjungentes desiderantur."

Aporrhais pes-carbonis Sowerby, 1859, pl. XV, fig. 5

  • Comment: Sowerby used Brongniarts name, which belongs to an eocene (?) Aporrhais from Italy (see Aporrhais pescarbonis). In the synonyms the name "serresiana" is cited.

1867

Original Description of Aporrhais Macandreae by Jeffreys, 1867, p. 253:

  • "Body whitish, with a triangular patch of light pink on the neck: snout not extending as far as the foot by a flake-white line or streak: tentacles sometimes curved like the horns of an ox, one on each side of the snout, speckled towards the tips with flake-white, and marked on the upper side by a white line down the middle; tips blunt, and yellow: eyes prominent, on short tubercles or stalks: foot narrow, in front obtusely rounded or nearly truncated, with a short angular corner at each side, behind pointed. Shell much smaller and of a more delicate shape and finer texture than the last species [A. pespelecani]; when young it is thin, transparent, and glossy: sculpture nearly similar; but the ribs on the last two whorls are less knotty; the riblets on the upper whorls are more numerous; the spiral striae are stronger and fewer on the lower part of the body-whorl and on the back of the outer lip, and are sometimes alternately large and small: colour whitish, sometimes having a pale fawn tinge: spire rather short; it does not taper as in the other species, nor is the apex so liable to be broken off: whorls 7-8, convex, but not angulated: suture less distinct between the lower whorls, owing to the above want of angularity: mouth proportionally shorter and wider: outer lip relatively larger, more palmated and flatter, divided into 4 processes, besides the basal point; all these form spikes, and far exceed in length the digitated processes of A. pes-pelecani; in the present species the uppermost spike frequently extends beyond the spire in a parallel direction, and is bent backwards; the lowermost spike has about the same length, and is also finely pointed, being slightly curved outwards; the three spikes which belong to the pterygoid flap or expansion project considerably, and are separate; the smaller two resemble the fork made by divided fingers; all the spikes are similarly grooved; the inside of the outer lip is microscopically pustulated: inner lip thin, spread over the lower side of the last three whorls; basal long fold and narrow: operculum slighter than that of A. pes-pelecani, but agreeing with it in other respects. L. 1.2. B. (to the furthest spike of the pterygoid flap) 1."
    • Types: 2 syntypes USNM 187883, 1 syntype SMNH (Bouchet & Waren, 1993)
    • Locus typicus: 6-50 miles east of Shetland, from 72-154 m (Bouchet & Waren, 1993)
    • Etymology: "Named in honour of the discoverer, Mr. Robert McAndrew, who has done so much to increase our knowledge of the Mollusca of the European seas." (Jeffreys, 1867, p. 253)
    • Habitat: Muddy sand in 40-85 f. on the east coast of Shetland, at a distance from land of 6-50 miles (McAndrew, Barlee, and J.G.J.); it is gregarious, although very local. M'Andrew and Barrett dredged a single dead specimen off the coast of Upper Norway, at a depth of 70 f.; but no Scandinavian zoologist appears to have met with it. (Jeffreys, 1867, p. 254)
    • Biology: " This mollusk is not so inactive as its associate, A.pes-pelecani. Its faeces are oval and brownish." (Jeffreys, 1867, p. 254)
  • Jeffreys, 1867 cited Forbes & Hanley, 1852/1853 pl. LXXXIX, fig. 5, 6

1869

Jeffreys, J. Gwyn,

  • The deep-sea dredging expedition in H. M. S. "Porcupine", Nature, 1869, 135-137

about Aporrhais serresiana:

  • "The next cruise was for ten days, and comprised the examination of the sea-bed between Galway and the Porcupine Bank, as well as beyond the Bank, at depths varying from 85 to 1,230 fathoms. All the Mollusca were northern, except Aporrhais Serresianus; and even that I am now inclined to consider identical with A. Macandreae, which inhabits the coasts of Norway and Shetland; the latter appears to be a dwarf variety or form."

2007

Boyer & Audibert, 2007, p. 151:

  • "Rostellaria serresiana Michaud, 1828 : 120-121, figs 3-4. Loc. typ. : «Habite à Barcelone (Espagne)... »."
  • "Aucun lot attribuable à la collection Michaud. Remarques: Une coquille de 33,2 mm (de l’apex à l’extrémité de la digitation inférieure), sans étiquette attachée, est attribuée par Locard (label extérieur, lot n° 45009051) à la collection Michaud. Cette attribution sans preuve paraît d’autant plus douteuse que la taille du spécimen est très inférieure à la taille donnée par Michaud (40 à 42 mm). Une coquille sur carton de la collection Terver (lot n° 9050), mesurant 36 mm et accompagnée de la localité « Catalogne », s’avère très comparable à la figure type de Michaud pour son contour, la forme et les proportions de ses digitations et pour la sculpture de ses tours. Néanmoins l’apex du spécimen de Terver est cassé, alors que la figure type de Michaud montre un apex intact, et la taille de ce spécimen est bien inférieure à celles données par Michaud. L’espèce de Michaud est considérée comme valide. Elle fait l’objet d’un replacement générique comme Aporrhais serresianus (Michaud, 1828)."
