Original Description of Struthiolaria frazeri by Hutton, 1884:

On both sides of the keel the whorls are deeply spirally grooved; three or four grooves behind the keel, and four or five in front of it, on the spire whorls. Body whorl with about ten spiral grooves in front of the keel; the anterior part of the shell is spirally striated only. Aperture ovate; inner lip with a large continuous callus, the columella slightly bent; outer lip reflexed, produced in the middle."
