  • Shell when complete rather large, thick and heavy, spire short, obtusely pointed, whorls completely concealed, all the upper portion of the shell being self-enrolled by the posterior prolongation of the last volution, which is wrapped about the spire like a mantle; characters of the columella and anterior canal not known; posterior canal described above under the subgenus."
