Fasciolaria Pungens

  • Fasciolaria pungens Wollemann, 1908

Original Description of Fasciolaria (?) pungens by Wollemann, 1908, p. 182:

  • "Mir liegen zwei Bruchstücke einer neuen Gastropodenspezies aus dem Mittleren Gault von Algermissen vor, die keine sichere Bestimmung zulassen, da bei beiden die Mündung weggebrochen ist; sie erinnern hinsichtlich der Gestalt an gewisse Fasciolarien. Die Umgänge tragen auf der Mitte einen schmalen Kiel, der mit entfernt stehenden, schräg nach hinten gerichteten, spitzen Stacheln besetzt ist, in denen sich Bündel wenig markierter Falten, die auf der Fläche oberhalb des Kiels liegen, vereinigen. Unterhalb des Kiels sieht man auch einige Spiralstreifen."

Locus typicus: Algermissen, Hildesheim district, Lower Saxony, Germany

Stratum typicum: Albian, lower Cretaceous

History and Synonymy

Comment by Kiel & Bandel, 2004, p. 121:

  • "Wollemann (1908) described two specimens of Fasciolaria (?) pugens from the Albian of Algermissen, northern Germany. He noted that the aperture of his specimens was broken away and thus no satisfactory placement was possible. Based upon its general shape he assigned it tentatively to Fasciolaria Lamarck, 1799. But the shell of Fasciolaria is more or less smooth and does not have any spines or keels. From the Hauterivian of Yonne, France, Peron (1900) described two aporrhaids of similar shape: Aporrhais cotteaui Peron, 1900 and Aporrhais foudriatensis Peron, 1900. Both have a spiny central keel and a second one on the last whorl. Also similar are Rostellaria dupiniana d'Orbigny, 1842 from the "Neocomian" of France (d'Orbigny, 1842: 281, pl. 206 figs. 1-3), and perhaps Mayeria milleri Collignon, 1951, a steinkern from the "Cretacé supérieur d'Antonibe" of Madagascar (Collignon 1951: 117-118, pl. 18 fig. 10) which has similarly keeled whorls but seems to lack the spines. Some aporrhaids like Dicroloma or Spinigera d'Orbigny, 1850 have a similar shape but do not develop regular spines on the spire,..."
