Species / Persististrombus Deperditus

Persististrombus Deperditus

Stromboidea


Original Description of Strombus deperditus by Sowerby, 1840:

  • "Turbinate, tuberculated, and transversely striated; tubercles united by a slight carina gradually increasing in size; lip thickened, produced above into a short pointed lobe. Height 2 1/4 inches, diameter 1 inch 4 lines including the wing."

Locus typicus: Soomrow NE of Jakhau (Juckow), Kutch district (Kachchh), Gujarat State, Western India

Stratum typicum: Lower Miocene

Comment Sowerby, 1840:

  • "Much like Strombus Gallus, Linn., and S. bituberculatus, Lam., but the tubercles are of an equal size on the last whorl and not much larger than on the spire. The aperture is not much dilated, so that the wing is rather small. It appears to be a very common shell in the Runn, but perhaps there are several species, as many of the specimens are so firmly attached to the stone, and so much concealed, that the distinguishing marks cannot be traced."
