Original Description of Rostellaria laqueata by Conrad, 1833, p. 41:
- "Subulate, with acute longitudinal ribs, and fine spiral striae: base coarsely striated."
Remark: "I at first thought this might be the young of R. velata, (nobis) but a comparison of many specimens proves it entirely distinct."
Stratum typicum: Gosport Sand Formation, Eocene
