Canarium Fusiforme

Stromboidea


Original Description of Strombus fusiformis by Sowerby (2nd), 1842, p. 31:

  • "T. fusiformi, laevi, antice subtruncata; spira conica, anfractibus prope suturam uni-sulcatis; ultimo ad marginem striato, dorso sub-gibboso; aperutra angustata; labiis intus striatis postice in canalem spirae partem decurrentem attenuatis; externo oblique truncato; sinu antico parvo."
  • The colour of this species is of a pinkish or purplish white, mottled and banded with brown, the lips of the aperture are buff. The aperture is peculiar in form, the lips being attenuated into a canal which is bent forwards on the penultimate whorl of the spire, and the outer lip obliquely truncated at the base.This character connects S. fusiformis with the following species [S. dentatus]"
