Species / Seraphs Mayeri

Seraphs Mayeri

Stromboidea


Original Description of Seraphs (Seraphs) mayeri by Jung, 1974:

  • "Of small to medium size, moderately slender. Apex moderately pointed. Inner lip thin, continuing above the adapical end of the aperture up to the apex. Outer lip thin except on spire, where it is slightly thickened and forms a "posterior canal". The shell of the body whorl behind this "canal" is usually somewhat resorbed and thus becomes transparent, with the result that the sutures of earlier whorls are visible. Columella slightly bent backwards near base."
