Species / Pseudanchura Carinata

Pseudanchura Carinata

Stromboidea


Original Description of Rostellaria carinata by Mantell, 1822, p. 86:

  • "Turreted, spirally striated; whorls, eight or nine; ornamented with a row of tubercles; body of the lower volution strongly carinated above the middle, and terminating in a spinous process on the outer lip. The casts of this shell are composed of indurated marl of a glossy black colour, and but rarely occur in a perfect state. In some specimens portions of the shell are still visible, and these shew that the original was covered with minute transverse striae; the tubercles on the shell are more elongated than in the casts, assuming the form of ribs."

Locus typicus: Laughton, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Stratum typicum: Gault, Albian, lower Cretaceous
