MANUAL OF CONCHOLOGY. 



FAMILY NATICID^. 

Shell subglobular, spiral, or paucispiral, with or without 
epidermis, the margin of the aperture entire. Operculum absent, 
or present and paucispiral or concentric, corneous or calcareous. 

Animal with voluminous foot, often incapable of entirely 
withdrawing into its shell; eyes at the base of the tentacles, 
often subcutaneous ; shell often partially or entirely covered 
by the mantle. Dentition 3*1 '3. 

The Naticidae have been monographed by 

Reeve, Conch. Iconica : Na'tica, 143 sp., 1855. Sigaretus, 20 
sp., 1864. Yanikoro, 24 sp., 1875.

Recluz, in Chenu's Illustrations Conchy liologiques, etc. 

The present work admits about 225 recent species belonging 
to the family ; many of those recognized by previous mono- 
graphers being considered synonyms : besides these there are 
many unfigured and undetermined forms. 

Subfamily I. Naticinde. 

Shell turbinate, subglobose or auriform, the spire usually 
short; aperture entire, without canal or sinus, the outer lip 
sharp, not reflected or margined, the columellar lip callous, more 
or less reflected over the umbilicus. Operculum calcareous or 
corneous, paucispiral (PI. 1, figs. 12-14). 



4 NATTCID^E. 

Animal with small tentacles, which are lanceolate, wide apart, 
connected by a veil ; eyes absent, or placed under the skin, 
behind the tentacles ; foot much produced in front, where it is 
furnished with a fold (propodium) covering the head and anterior 
margin of the shell ; operculigerous lobe very ample, partially 
enveloping the shell ; mantle enclosed. Jaws corneous, waved or 
tessellated, subtrigonal (PL 1, fig. 3). Central tooth of the 
radula trapezoidal, generally tricuspidate, lateral teeth with a 
central large and smaller cusps, inner marginals simple or bifid, 
outer marginals simple (PI. 1, figs. 4-6). 

The animals of Naticidrc, characterized by the cephalic disk 
forming the propodium, are completely retractile within the 
shell in the typical Natica, but not retractile in Sigaretus and 
Mamilla. In some species of Neverita, the posterior margin of 
the propodium forms on the left side a sort of fleshy siphon ; the 
operculigerous lobe, which encircles the shell sometimes has a 
sinus on the right side, probably for the introduction of water 
into the branchial cavity. 

The Natica (PL 7, fig. 43) is an active animal, carnivorous and 
very predaceous, living in sandy places, where it hides under the 
surface and burrows for bivalves. These it pierces with its 
tongue, boring a round hole, generally near the beaks, where 
the shell of the victim is thinnest. The eyes, hidden by the 
propodium, and subcutaneous, are generally not perceptible, but 
can be distinguished in the group Amaura. 

The Nidus (PL 7, figs. 44, 45) is unlike that of any other 
mollusk in form and composition, being built up largely of 
the sand of the sea-bottom, agglutinated into a strap, forming 
part of a circle, and provided on one side with a constriction or 
rim ; the walls contain the eggs, arranged in quincunx order. 

Subfamily II. Lamellar iinse. 

Shell thin, sigaretiform, more or less internal, generally pauci- 
spiral, sometimes reduced to a non-spiral auriform lamina; spire 
short, few-whorled, lateral; aperture oval, entire, large. No 
operculum. 

The animal (PL 1, figs. 18, 19) has not the cephalic disk of 
Xatica. The mantle gradually grows over the shell until the 
hitter becomes, in some of the rcnor:i, completely internal ; eyes 



NATICID^E. 5 

on prominences at the base of the tentacles. Dentition, PI. 1, 

fig- 9- 

The Lamellariinte are carnivorous, living upon Hydrozoa, 
Alcyonaria and compound Ascidise. The eggs are deposited in 
the midst of colonies of the latter. The tirst embryonic shell 
is nautiloid, with spiral ridges ; the second is more simple, 
resembling a Carinaria; these shells are united at their margins 
by a thin membrane. The pelagic larval forms have received 
the names of Brownia, Echinospira, Calcarella and JasoniUa. 
See Manual, ii, t. 8, f. 103-105 ; Structural and Syst. Conch., i, 
130, t. 20, f. 51. 

Subfamily III. Vanikoridse. 

Shell external, white, with sometimes a velvety epidermis, 
usually striated, costate or decussated ; umbilicated, without a 
trace of callus. Opercnlum thin, corneous, non-spiral. 

Animal with a long snout, tentacles flattened, much dilated in 
the middle, narrow above ; eyes sessile at their external base ; 
mantle margin simple ; foot profoundly bipartite, a narrow, 
truncated, elongated propodium and a larger, rounded or sub- 
quadrangular, operculigerous metapodiuin ; a large epipodial 
veil on each side of the foot^; branchia a single row of triangular 
leaflets, partly free. Jaws flattened; radula short and wide, 
having, according to Gray, two series of teeth (?). 

Synopsis of Genera. 

I. Naticinse. 

Genus NATICA, Adanson, 115?. 

Shell oval globular, porcellanous, solid, generally smooth, 
covered by a fine epidermis, which is transparent, and generally 
not very persistent; umbilicated, or umbilicus more or less 
tilled with callus ; aperture semilunar, vertical, the outer lip 
simple. Operculum large, semilunar, paucispiral, corneous or 
calcareous. 

Animal with large cephalic lobe, truncated in front, subquad- 
rangular. 

Subgenus NATICA (sensu stricto). 

Shell smooth, solid, brightly colored in bands, spots, stripes, 
etc. Operculum calcareous (PI. 1, figs. 12, 13). N. canrena, 
Linn. 



6 NATlCIDjE. 

The species are numerous; mostly inhabitants of warm sens, 
in all quarters of the globe. The genus first appeared in the 
Jurassic formation. The fossil forms are remarkable for the 
persistence of their colors. Nacca, Risso, is a synonym. 

Section STIGMAULAX, Morch, 1852. 

Whorls cancellated or grooved. N. cancellata, Lam. 

Subgenns NEVERITA, Risso, 1826. 

Shell large, depressed orbicular, spire conical or flattened ; 
umbilicus open, or partly filled by a tongue-shaped callous process 
(funiculum) of the columella. Operculum corneous. Dentition, 
PI. 1, fig. 0. N. duplicate, , Say. 

The shell of Neverita is usually larger sized, sombre colored, 
and not so solid as that of Natica. The group inhabits mostly 
temperate waters. 

Section NEVERITA (typical). 

Umbilicus partly filled by a tongue-shaped callous process of 
the columella. 

Section LUNATIA, Gray, 1847. 

Shell subglobose, large, umbilicus open, without funiculum. 
Almost insensiblj r connects with Neverita. Operculum, PI. 1, 
fig. 14. N. heroSj Say. 

Section PAYREAUDAUTIA, Bucquoy, Dautzenberg and Dollfus, 
1883. 

Umbilicus furnished with two funicular plications; shell small, 
variegated. N. intricata, Donovan. 

Appears to connect with the typical group which it resembles 
in coloration, but distinguished by its umbilicus and operculum. 

Section MAMMA, Klein, 17f>3. 

Shell oval or suboval, solid, smooth, usually unicolored, white 
or yellowish ; aperture semilunar, inner lip oblique, callous, the 
callus extending into and more or less complete!}' filling the 
umbilicus. N. uber, Yal. 

Polinices, Montf., 1810, Mamillaria, Swains.. 1840, Nali<-uui, 
Guildintr, 1884, and Naticella, Guilding, 1840, arc- synonyms. 

Section CEP ATI A, Gray, 1840. 

Shell rotelliform ; umbilicus closed by a large callosity, a 
pliciform lamella on the upper part of the columelhir lip. Fossil 
only. N. cepacea, Lam. Eocene. 



NATICIDvE. Y 

Velainia, Munier-Chalmas, 1884, is a synonym. 

Section MAMILLA, Schum., 1817. 

Shell oval conic, rather thin, the whorls oblique, rapidly 
enlarging ; white or fasciated with brown ; mouth oblong, inner 
lip narrow, reflected, usually brown or blackish; umbilicus not 
funiculated. A 7 , maura, Lam. 

The synonyms are Naticaria, Swainson, 1840, and Btima 
(Chemn.), H. and A. Adams, 1853. 

Subgenus AMPULLINA, Lam. jfate Def ranee, 1821. 

Umbilicus without funiculum, sometimes open, sometimes 
closed by a callosity ; columellar margin usually convex, the 
umbilical region limited by a spiral ridge. 

Globularia, Swainson, is a synonym. 

Only one living species belongs in this group ; the rest are 
tertiary fossils. 

Section AMPULLINA (sensu stricto). 

Spire short, aperture large. N. sigaretina, Lam. Eocene, 
Paris (Struct, and Syst. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 66). 

Ampullinopsis, Conrad, may perhaps be placed here. Globu- 
laria, Swains., is also a synonym. 

Section AMAURELLINA, Bayle, 1885. 

Spire scalariform, elongated, sharp ; umbilicus with u narrow 
false funiculum. N. spirata, Lam. 

Section MEGATYLOTUS, Fischer, 1885. 

Callosity of the umbilical region very large, limited by a 
semicircular groove, distant from the columella. N. rrassatina, 
Lam. Lower Miocene. 

Section CERNINA, Gray, 1840. 

Subglobose, polished, bright colored ; -aperture large; umbili- 
cal region entirely covered by a convex callosity, not limited by 
a groove ; columellar margin convex. N. fluctuata, Sowb., the 
sole living species of this subgenus. 

Anomphala, Jonas, is a synonym. 

Subgenus EUSPIRA, Agassiz, 1837. 

Spire more or less elevated, suture canaliculated ; whorls few, 
angulated or carinated ; umbilical fissure little marked or hidden. 
N. canaliculate,, Morris and Lye., Oolite, England. (Struct, and 
Syst. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 84). 



8 NATICIDuE. 

Subgenus A MAURA, Moller, 1842. 

Shell oval, smooth, thin, imperforate, covered by an epidermis ; 
aperture oblong, columella short, simple. 

Animal with small, compact foot, the right lobe profoundly 
sinuated ; eyes subcutaneous, but visible. 

A boreal group, commencing with Jurassic fossils, and con- 
taining a few living species. N. Candida, Moller. 

Section ACRYBTA, H. and A. Adams, 1853. 

Shell globular, spire very short; columellar margin incurved, 
columella twisted ; lip fragile. N.flava, Gould. 

Bulbus, Brown, 1839, is a synonym. 

Section AMAUROPSIS, Morch, 1851. 

Suture canaliculated. N. canaliculata, Gould. 

Section PSEUDAMAURA, Fischer, 1885. 

Shell more solid, longitudinally ribbed. N. bulbiformis, Sowb., 
fossil. 

Section PTYCHOSTOMA, Laube, 1866. 

Shell imperforate, oval ; spire large, elevated, sharp ; aperture 
oval, angular posteriorly ; columella straight ; the margin arcu- 
ated ; lip sinuated near the suture ; growth lines sinuous. N. 
Pleurotomoides, Wissman. Triassic. 

? Subgenus AMAURELLA, A. Adams, 1867. 

Shell small, imperforate, white, shining, apex submamillary, 
aperture acuminately ovate ; lip arcuate, simple, a little thickened. 

It is very doubtful where in the system these little shells 
should be placed. The tj r pe species was originally described as 
a Macrocheilus, but it was subsequently said to have greater 
affinities with Amaura. 

Subgenus NATICOPSIS, M'Coy. 

Shell imperforate ; inner lip very thick, spreading. Operculum 
shelly. N. Phillipsii, M'Coy. Carboniferous, Gt. Brit. (Struct, 
and Syst. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 67). 

Neritomopsis, Waagen, 1880, is a synonym. 

Section ISONEMA, Meek. /. humilis, Meek. Devonian, Ohio 
(S. and S. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 71). 

Section TRACIIYDOMIA, Moek and Worthen, 1866. 

Surface covered by small regularly disposed tubercles. 

N. nodosa, M. and W. Carboniferous, Illinois. 



NATICIDvE. 9 

Subgenus GYRODES, Conrad, 1860. 

Shell depressed globose ; aperture generally angular or nar- 
rowly rounded below ; inner lip thin ; umbilicus wide, deep, 
without callosity, bounded by a revolving carina which is some- 
times crenate, with occasionally a second small revolving ridge 
within ; whorls shouldered above, the angle generally wrinkled 
or crenate. 

Cretaceous, United States, India. N. alveata, Conr. (S. and S. 
Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 70). 

Subgenus TYCHONIA, de Koninck, 1881. 

Shell somewhat depressed, globose, smooth; spire short, 
obtuse, suture linear ; last whorl very large, depressed at the 
base ; aperture semilunar ; lip thin ; columella thickened by a 
callosity which is limited by a shallow oblique groove ; no 
umbilicus. 

N. Omaliana, de Koninck. Carboniferous, Belgium. 

? Subgenus PLATYOSTOMA, Conrad. 

Shell subglobose ; spire short ; aperture very large, suborbicu- 
lar, dilated ; labrum joining the body-whorl at right-angles to the 
axis of the shell. 

P. Niagarensis, Hall. Niagara group, New York (S. and S. 
Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 14). 

Section STROPHOSTYLUS, Hall. 

Shell subglobose, spire small, body-whorl large, ventricose ; 
outer lip thin, sometimes slightly expanded ; columella twisted 
or spirally grooved within, not reflected ; umbilicus none. P. 
subobtusa, Hall. Lower Helderberg, N. York (S. and S. Conch., 
t. Ixiv, f. 75). 

Differs in its twisted or grooved columella. 

Section ORIOSTOMA, Munier-Chalmas, 1876. 

Umbilicus moderate, circumscribed by a carina ; whorls some- 
times partially free. P. Barrandei, Mun.-Chalm. Devonian. 

The relations of this group with Natica are somewhat obscure, 
as are also those of the typical form with those designated here 
as sections. As in many other cases with the older fossil forms 
we can only be guided by rather remote general resemblances. 



Tylostoma, Sharpe, is considered a member of the group by 



10 NATICJD.E. 

some conchologists ; I have placed it in Tornatellidiu (See Struct, 
and Syst. Conch., ii, 357). 

Genus RUMELLA, Bourguignat, 1885. 

Shell small, obliquely oval, polished, spire short, of few whorls ; 
last whorl with a large umbilical depression, limited by a basal 
angle, and covered by a strong rounded callus ; lip simple. Opcr- 
culum unknown. 

Lake Tanganika, Central Africa. 

The species are said to resemble the group Mamilla in minia- 
ture; their position cannot be positively ascertained until we 
become acquainted with the animal and operculum. 

Genus SIGARETUS, Lamarck, 1799. 

Shell depressed ear-shaped, with minute spire and very large 
aperture, externally with revolving striae; color usually white, 
sometimes invested with a thin corneous epidermis. Operculum 
minute, horny, paucispiral (PI. 1, fig. 15). 

Animal with large mantle partly or entirely covering the shell 
into which it is not able to withdraw entirely. Dentition. 
Central tooth of the radula shorter than the lateral cusps (PI. 1, 

;-' ") 

Sigaretus inhabits warm seas, on muddy sand-flats ; it is slug- 
gish and very timid, moving slowly; when crawling they con- 
stantly explore the surrounding surface with the produced fore- 
lobe of the foot, which is also used in burrowing. 

Living species are rather numerous; fossil, it commences in 
the Cretaceous. Catinu* (Klein, 1753), H. and A. Adams; 
Lnpia, Conrad ; Stomatia, Hill ; Cryptostoma, Blainv., 1818, and 
Raynevallia, Ponzi, are synonyms. 

Section SIGARETUS (.se/zsw. stricto). 

Shell depressed orbicular, convex above, mouth rounded ; 
umbilicus none or covered by a reflection of the inner lip ; spire 
short, oblique. 

Section EUNATICINA, Fischer. 1885. 

Shell umbilicated, oval oblong, thin, ventricose ; spire sharp; 
inner lip straight, thin anteriorly, with a median callus. N. 
papilla, Gmel. 

It is Naticina, Gray, 1840 (not Guilding, 1834). Lacunaria, 



NATICID^E. 11 

Conrad, was referred here by me in Structural and Syst. Conch. ; 
its species having been described as Naticse ; it is now placed in 
Lacunidae. 

Section AMPLOSTOMA, Stoliczka, 1868. 

Subovate, thin, spire short ; whorls few, the last large, ventri- 
cose, produced in front, widely excavated at base ; aperture 
elongately ovate, subangulated, pillar lip smooth, outer lip 
dilated and expanded at the margin ; surface nearly smooth. 
S. auriformis, Stol., Cretaceous, So. India (S. <fc S. Conch., t. 
Ixiv, f. 85). 

The characters are exceedingly close to those of the last 
section. Lysis, Gabb., 1864, which I consider a member of the 
subfamily Purpurinre, of Muricid;v, has been referred to this 
neighborhood by Dr. Fischer. 

Subfamily II. LartiellariiUK. 
Genus LAMELLARIA, Montagu, 1815. 

Shell internal, ear-shaped, thin, pellucid ; spire lateral, very 
small; aperture large, patulous, both lips regularly arcuated; 
axis imperforate. No operculum. 

Animal much larger than the shell, which is entirely concealed 
beneath the dorsal shield ; shield thick, verrucose, notched in 
front; foot elongated, truncated in front, acuminated behind; 
eyes at the outer bases of the tentacles. Dentition 1*1-1, the 
central tooth subtrigonal, with the free margin denticulated and 
base incurved ; laterals large, the summit lanceolate, the margins 
denticulate, no marginals (PL 1, fig. 9). 

There are a few living species, and two species in the Miocene. 
Interesting particulars of the habits of Lamellaria will be found 
in Structural and Systematic Concholog}', ii, 209. 

The synonymy includes Marsenia, Leach, 1847 ; Coriocella, 
Blainv., 1824; Chelinotus, Swains., 1840 ; Cryptocella, H. & A. 
Adams, 1853; Ermvea, Gray, 1857; Cryptothyra, Menke, 1830. 
Coriocella and Cryptocella have been considered subgenera, but 
have no important characters ; the former was founded upon an 
individual accidentally deprived of its shell. The fry, also, 
have received several generic names (p. 5). 



12 NATICID.E. 

Subgenus MARSENINA, Gray, 1850. 

Shell auriform, similar to Lamellaria. 

Animal (PI. 1, fig. 20) with shield only partially covering the 
shell, open in the middle, the anterior margin deeply incised a 
little to the left of the middle, and again incised at the middle 
of the right margin. Dentition, PI. 1, fig. 10. Boreal Seas. 
L. prodita, Loven. Goloboccphalus, Sars, is a synonym. 

Genus ONCIDIOPSIS (Beck), Bergh, 1853. 

Shell internal, membranous, flexible, slipper-shaped, not spiral, 
oblong, obtuse at the extremities. 

Animal (PI. 1, fig. 21) completely enveloping the shell ; dorsal 
shield verrucose, thick, margin entire ; foot elongated, lanceo- 
late, exceeding the shield at either extremity ; tentacles cylin- 
drical, with eyes at their exterior bases. Dentition as in Velutina 
(PI. 1, fig. 11). Boreal Seas. 0. glacialis, Sars. 

? Genus CALEDONIELLA, Souverbie, 1869. 

Shell heliciform, imperforate, oval, orbicular, thin, invested by 
a thin epidermis which extends beyond the lip ; spire much 
depressed, sublateral ; whorls few, rapidly increasing ; aperture 
oblique, rather large, the extremities of the simple lip united by 
a callus extending widely upon the whorl. Animal unknown. 

C. Montrouzieri, Souverb. New Caledonia. 

Genus VELUTINA, Fleming, 1822. 

Shell thin, mostly external, calcareous, auriform, paucispiral, 
invested by a velvety epidermis ; spire lateral, suture well im- 
pressed; aperture large, rounded, the lip thin, the columellar 
lip a little reflected. No operculum. 

Animal with large oblong foot; margin of mantle developed, 
ami more or less reflected over the edge of the shell; hc:ul 
broad ; tentacles subulate, blunt, far apart, with eyes on prom- 
inences at their outer bases. 

Dentition, 2*l*l'l-2, the central tooth subquadrangular, multi- 
cuspid, the central cusps very long and sharp; lateral teeth 
multicuspid, marginals narrow, with a few obsolete denticles on 
the margin (PI. 1, fig. 8). 



NATICTDjE. 13 

The Velutinas resemble the pulmoniferous genus Otina, but 
are strictly marine. Sometimes they are met with far out at 
sea, but usually live among stones near low-tide. Boreal. V. 
Isevigata, Pennant. 

? Catinella, Stache, is a synonym. 

Section LIMNERIA, H. and A. Adams, 1853. 

Spire more elevated, peristome not continuous, columella 
subcanaliculate. F. undata, Brown. 

Morvillia, Gray, 1857, is a synonym. 

Section VELUTELLA, Gray, 1847. 

Shell in most part covered by the mantle, very thin, flexible, 
with short spire ; peristome continuous, thickened. V. Jlexilis, 
Montg. 

Section LEPTONOTIS, Conrad, 1866. 

Margin of the aperture remarkably expanded, surpassing tho 
spire. V. expansa, Whitfield. Eocene. Alabama. 

The shell is minute, and may be embryonic. 

SC^EVOGYRA, Whitfield, 1817. Struc. and Syst. Conch., iii, 350. 
LYOSOMA, White, 1883. Struc. and Syst. Conch., iii, 350. 

These two fossil groups, of doubtful relationships, may 
possibly be members of the Naticidn-. 

Subfamily III. Vanikoridde. 
Genus VANIKORO, Quoy and Gaimard, 1832. 

Shell subglobose, external, white, with a velvety epidermis, 
surface striate, costate or decussate, umbilicated, without a trace 
of callus in the umbilicus ; spire not produced; aperture semi- 
lunar, outer lip simple. 

Animal described in the subfamil}'. Operculum thin, corneous, 
with apical nucleus, not spiral (PL 1, figs. 16, 17). 

A few species are found about corals in warm seas; fossil, 
commences with secondary strata. 

About equally well-known under the later and perhaps more 
acceptable name of Narica, Recluz, 1841. Leucotis, Swainson, 
1840, and Merria, Gray, 1842, are also synonyms. 

Section YANIKOROPSIS, Meek, 1876. 

Shell subglobose, thick, body-whorl large, spire low ; imper- 



1 4 NATTCA. 

foratc ; outer lip simple, beveled, inner lip closely folded upon and 
adhering to the columella and body-whorl, very little thickened, 
smooth ; surface with distinct revolving lines and furrows, 
developing on the body-whorl strong oblique grooves parallel to 
the growth lines. F. Tuomeyana, Meek and Worthen. Creta- 
ceous ; Upper Missouri River (S. and S. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 87). 

Section NATICODON, Ryckholt. 

Shell like Vanikoro, but inner lip usually thickened, and 
always provided with some kind of a tooth , columella either 
slightly hollowed out or solid ; surface smooth, or ornamented 
with various spiral or transverse striae. F. spirata, Sowb. 
Carboniferous, Europe (S. and S. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 76). 

This group forms a connecting-link between Vanikoro and Neri- 
topsis ; the former having the columellar lip smooth, the latter 
insinuated in the middle, or provided with two strong teeth, 
while Naticodon has only one tooth ; as regards the thickness of 
the shell, this transition seems equally to hold good. 

Section NATIRIA, de Koninck, 1881. 

Shell globose, spire short, suture profound, axis perforated ; 
surface longitudinal!}' plicate, with intermediate parallel striae, 
and slight spiral striae ; columellar margin slightly thickened ; 
aperture nearly circular, peristome continuous. Carboniferous- 
Trias. F. lirata, Phillips. 

Subfamily Naticinee. 

Genus NATICA, Adanson, 1757. 

Subgenus NATICA (sensu stricto). 

N. MILLEPUNCTATA, Lam. PL 2, figs. 22, 23, 24, 25. 

Yellowish white, closely painted with small light chestnut 
spots, umbilical region and interior of aperture light brown ; 
umbilicus with a central entering ridge. Length, 1-5-2 inches. 

Mediterranean Sea. 

Linnaeus classed this among the varieties of his N. canrena. 
It is a variable species in its color markings, thus acquiring 
several synonyms. Among those of the typical color-variety are 
N. punctata, Karsten, and N. stercus-muscarum, Gmel. (juvenile). 
Monterosato has named a var. minor. 



NATICA. 15 

Var. MACULATA, Desh. PL 2, fig. 24. 

The spots larger, less sharply defined, often interruptedly con- 
fluent, with three interrupted bands of larger spots or macula- 
tions. 

Appears to connect closely with the type form, but has been 
separated as a distinct species of late years by several concholo- 
gists on account of differences in the lingual dentition. I retain 
the name by which the species is well known instead of the prior 
one of N. hebrtea, Martyn which has scarcely obtained currency. 
Other synonyms are N. trifasciata (Recluz), Adams ; N. aspersa, 
Menke ; N. cruentata, Payr. 

Monterosato has named as color-varieties, fusca, immaculata, 
and rarimaculata. The latter appears to me to connect with the 
next species. 

Var. SANGUINOLENTA, Brusina. PI. 2, fig. 25. 

The punctations coalescing into undulating longitudinal flam- 
mules. 

N. PULMINEA, Gmelin. PL 2, figs 26, 27. 

Shell solid, somewhat tumid and plicately striated next the 
suture ; umbilicated, but the umbilicus partly covered by an 
overgrowing callous deposit on the upper part of the columellar 
lip, which finally becomes very thick; whitish, with longitudinal 
undulating or zigzag chestnut markings, sometimes partly broken 
up into spots ; often peppered with minute spots between the 
larger markings ; occasionally the zigzag lines break up into 
three revolving series. Length, 1-1-75 inches. 

West Coast of Africa. 

The synonymy includes N. cruentata and N. arachnoidea, 
GmeL; ? N. pardalis, Phil.; N. bifasciata (Recluz), Reeve ; N. 
punctata, Swainson ; N. Senegalensis, Recluz (fig. 28) has been 
placed here b}' Reeve and Sowerby ; the figure has the markings 
of fulminea, but appears to possess a more conical spire ; it is 
probably distinct. 

N. ADANSONI, Phil. PL 2, fig. 30. 

Small, solid, yellowish maculated and spotted with chestnut, 
upper and lower portions of body-whorl free from spots, or 



16 NATICA. 

nearly so ; umbilicus completely filled by the callus of the inner 
lip. Length, 15 mill. 

W. Africa. 

The shell figured by Reeve under this name (fig. 29) is a 
distinct species = N.fanel, Adanson. 

N. FULGURANS, Recluz. PI. 7, fig. 29 ; PI. 2, fig. 28; PI. 7, fig. 29. 

Yellowish white, with purplish brown angulately flexuous 
streaks, often running together ; aperture white ; umbilicus 
partly filled by a rather large, convex, rounded central callus. 

Length, 25 mill. 

Senegal. 

Differs from N. Adansoni in the partly excavated umbilicus, 
from N. fulminea in its more conical spire, and less tumid 
shoulder of the body-whorl. N. Senegalensis, Recluz (fig. 28) 
appears to be a synonym. 

N. BOURGUIGNATI, Recluz. PL 2, fig. 31. 

Somewhat thick, with well-impressed suture ; umbilicus small, 
contracted above by the lip callus and with an entering line ; 
white-flamed longitudinally or punctate with dark chestnut. 

Length, 14-15 mill. 

Madagascar. 

Reeve unites this with the preceding species ; if so, it is a 
strongly marked minor variety. 

N. ZEBRA, Lam. PI. 2, fig. 32. 

Whitish, densely longitudinally painted with narrow, sharply 
zigzag chestnut streaks. Length, 1 inch. 

Philippines. 
N. PELLIS-TIGRINA, Chemn. PL 2, fig. 33. 

Whitish, densely spotted with purplish chestnut, a little plicate 
at the suture. Diam. 22 mill. 

Australia. 
N. variolaria, Recluz, is a synonym. 

X. MACULOSA, Lam. PL 3, fig. 35. 

Spire more elevated than in the last species, umbilicus nar- 
rower, maculations obsolete towards the base of the body-whorl 
and sometimes near the suture also. Diam. 18 mill. 

China, Japan, Philippines, Java, etc. 




NATICA. 

It is very doubtful whether this is really distinct from the 
preceding species. N. Javanica, Lam., is a synonym. 

N. FANEL, Adanson. PL 2, fig. 29. 

Widely umbilicated, with a re-entering callous central ridge, 
the umbilicus bounded by a sharp angle ; whorls flattened next 
the suture ; punctate with chestnut, some of the pimctations con- 
fluent into maculations, which are either irregular or form two 
or three interrupted revolving series. 

Senegal. 

Reeve changed the above barbarous specific name to Adan- 
soni already used by Philippi. I cannot consent to re-baptize 
the species ; better a bad than an unstable name. 

N. LYNX, Phil. PL 2, fig. 34. 

Rather thick, smooth, whitish, with light chestnut spots, 
umbilicus very narrow, nearly filled by the funiculate callus. 

Height 6-66, diam. 5-33 mill. 

Mangalore, India. 

Closely resembles the preceding species in form and coloring; 
distinguished by its much smaller size and narrow umbilicus. 

N. IMPERFORATA, Gray. PL 3, fig. 36 ; PL 7, figs. 27, 28. 

Solid, with a heavy white callus quite closing the umbilicus, 
whorls a little constricted below the suture, where they are 
shortly chestnut-flamed, everywhere else densely minutely punc- 
tate with chestnut, with obsolete light revolving bands. 

Diam. 1 inch. 

Cape of Good Hope, West Africa (Marrat). 

N. genuanus, Reeve (figs. 27, 28), is a younger and more per- 
fect state of this species, with the narrow pale bands more 
distinct and bearing dark spots or sagittate markings. 

N. FLORIDA, Reeve. PL 3, fig. 37. 

Umbilicated, umbilicus brown stained, with a central entering 
ridge ; whitish, with close chestnut pimctations and two faint 
light purplish bands, sometimes obsolete. Length, 22 mill. 

Hob. unknown. 
N. PULICARIS, Phil. PL 3, figs. 38, 39. 

Shell umbilicated, smooth, polished, a little flattened beneath 
the suture ; columella callous above ; whitish, closely sprinkled 



18 NATTCA. 

with fine orange dots, with large oblique blotches on the upper 
part of the body-whorl (appearing also on the spire), and narrow 
revolving bands of the same color on the middle and lower part. 
Length, 20 mill. 

Hob. unknown. 

The above is the description of N. tincturata, Reeve, which, 
in the Index to the " Iconica," is said to be a synonym of the 
smaller, obscurely figured N. pulicaris. 

N. CINCTA, Recluz. PL 3, fig. 40. 

Shell white covered by numerous chestnut punctations, with 
four narrow white bands spotted with brown. Length, 17 mill. 

Malabar. 

I am not acquainted with this species which appears to me 
to be nearly related to the preceding. It is omitted from the 
monographs of Philippi, Reeve and Sowerby. 

N. VIOLACEA, Sowb. PI. 3, fig. 41. 

Thick, smooth, polished ; white, tessellated with obliquely 
square orange-brown spots, arranged in revolving series, some- 
times promiscuously interrupted or broken up into hieroglyphic 
markings ; columella with a heavy violet-colored callous deposit, 
covering the upper portion of the umbilicus. Height, 1 inch. 

Philippines, Viti Islands. 
This is N. rhodostoma, Phil. 

N. FABELLA, Jousseaume. PL 3, fig. 42. 

Ovately conoidal, solid ; yellowish with minute chestnut dots 
and a sutural series of maculations ; aperture white within, 
Itilasciate with chestnut maculations, the margin minutely chest- 
nut dotted ; umbilicus narrow, largely covered by the thick 
brownish columellar callus. Length, 13 mill. 

JIab. unknown. 

Appears to be very closely related to N. lynx, Phil. 

N. TECTA, Adanson. PL 3, fig. 43. 

Ovatelv conoidal, solid, smooth, shining; yellowish, with 
short longitudinal chestnut lines at the suture, the rest of the 
surface minutely punctate with chestnut ; umbilicus covered by 
the white colmnellar callus. Height, IS mill.

NATICA. 19 

N". SAGRAIANA, d'Orb. PL 3, figs. 44-46. 

Whitish, with light chestnut, narrow zigzag lines, interrupted 
by a white band on the periphery ; columellar callus chestnut or 
violaceous, nearly covering the umbilicus. Length, 5-7 '5 inches. 
West Indies, Madeira, W. Africa, 

Mediterranean Sea. 

N. fulminea, Risso, name preoccupied by Gmelin for another 
species ; ? N. fiammidata, Requien ; N. pulchella, Pfeiffer (fig. 
40) ; N. nivea, Anton ; N. Jamaicensis, C. B. Adams; N.filosa, 
Phil. (fig. 45), described as lineolata, preoccupied by Deshaj-es 
for a fossil species, are synonyms. 

N. VENUSTULA, Phil. PI. 3, figs. 47-49. 

Shell shining, white with sparse chestnut lineations, somewhat 
zigzag, interrupted by a white band at the suture and a broader 
one on the periphery ; columellar callus white, filling the umbili- 
cus except a narrow chink. Length, 8 mill. 

Habitat unknown. 

The lines are not so close as in the last species, the sutural 
area is without them, the callus is uncolored and more nearly 
fills the umbilicus ; still, I doubt its distinctness. N. Bayani, 
Jouss. (fig. 49), is apparently a synonym. 

N. TRATLLII, Reeve. PL 3, fig. 50. 

Rather solid, somewhat depressed globose, umbilicus large, 
partly filled by the brownish columellar callus ; whitish, painted 
throughout with waved oblique dark chestnut lines. 

Length, 12 mill. 

Malacca. 

More depressed than N. Sagraiana, the lineations wider apart, 
not interrupted by any peripheral band, etc. 

I 
N. MOZAICA, Sowb. PL 3, figs. 51, 52. 

Ovate, whitish with four series of ovate, obliquely quadrate 
chestnut markings ; columellar callus wide, white, covering the 
umbilicus. Length, 15 mill. 

Hob. unknown. 

The form and callus remind one of the smaller species of 
Neritina. 



20 NATICA. 

N. CHINENSIS, Lam. PL 3, figs. 53, 54. 

Umbilicus wide, nearly filled by a wide central entering white 
callus, leaving a semicircular groove terminating in a narrow 
deep perforation above ; white, witli obliquely subquadrate 
chocolate-colored spots, arranged in four or usually five revolving 
series, the second and fourth series often conspicuously larger. 

Length, 1 inch. 

China, Singapore, Philippines, Viti Islands. 
This is N. onca, Bolten, of Adams' Genera, and N. Aimei, 
Jousseaume (fig. 54). 

N. FORSKALII, Chemn. PL 3, fig. 55. 

Openly perspectively urnbilicated, plicately striate next the 
suture ; white, longitudinally strigate with chestnut, the striga- 
tions interrupted, forming two narrow white bands, base un- 

colored. Length, 1-1*5 inches. 

Mauritius. 

Has been considered by some conchologists a var. of N. rufa, 
Born, but the latter is unicolored, interrupted by bands and at 
the base, and the umbilicus has a distinct entering ridge. 

N. MAHEENSIS, Dufo. PL 3, fig. 56. 

Strongly plicately wrinkled next the suture ; umbilicus half 
filled with a strong white central entering callus; whitish, with 
two broad bands of oblique chestnut blotches. Length, 28 mill. 

St't/chvlles Is. 
N. KAYNOLDIANA, Becluz. PL 3, fig. 57. 

Rnther thick, smooth, umbilicus partly covered on the upper 
part by the white oolumellar callus ; orange-fulvous, sometimes 
unicolored, more frequently more or less covered by chocolate 
reticulations, often with an irregular hand-like interruption on 
the periphery. Length, 1 inch. 

Ceylon, Singapore, Viti /x. 

Sowerby's figure is of a shape not oh:ir:uM eristic of this species, 
the spire being too elevated. 

N. CANKKXA, Liiiii. IM. 4, figs. 58-61. 

Cmbilicus largely filled with a white entering callus, leaving 
a semicircular rimation; chestnut-brown, with yellowish brown 
revolving zones, ;md longitudinal xigztig In-own streaks, beeoin-

ing darker and much more prominent upon the pale bands, bnsc 
white. 

West Indies, Central America, Florida. 

The young of this species has been described under the 
name of N. proximo,, C. B. Ad. (fig. 59). N. lemniscata, Phil, 
(fig. 60), and N. affinis, Busch (fig. 61), appear to me to be 
merely young, faded-out examples of this species, although the 
first has been identified somewhat doubtfully with a West African 
shell (Jahrb. Mai. Gcsell., iii, 244). Another synonym is N. 
pennata, Schroter. 

N. ALA-PAPILIONIS (Chcmn. in part), A net. PI. 4, figs. 62-61. 

Slightly flattened at the suture, umbilicus large, with a central 
entering callous ridge; fleshy fawn-colored, with three or four 
subequidistant narrow white zones filleted with chocolate, the 
interspaces of the first and second and of the third and fourth 
zones usually darker colored. Length, 25-35 mill. 

China, Philippines, Australia, Seychelles, Zanzibar, 

Guayma.s and Cape St. Lucas, W. Coast of Mexico. 

The above remarkable distribution is fully confirmed by speci- 
mens before me. The West Coast shells are known under the 
name of N. zonaria, Lam., but Carpenter acknowledges their 
identity. N. crenata, liecluz (fig. 63), N. ai'ticulata, Phil. (fig. 
64), and N. tseniala, Menke, are synonyms. 

Var. BRODERIPIANA, liecluz. Figs. 65-67. 

Whorls longitudinally plicately grpoved ; orange-fawn color, 
with three white bands articulated with chestnut. 

West Columbia, Mazatlan. 

N. Taslei, Keel. (fig. 66), and N. iostoma, Menke (fig. 67), are 
synonyms of this variety. The latter has been differently 
identified, with N. maroch.iensis, G-mel., but Philippi's figure of 
the original type sets this question at rest. 

N. PICTA, Recluz. PI. 4, figs. 68, 69. 

Umbilicated, the umbilicus mostly filled by a white entering 
callus, smooth; orange fawn-colored, white at the suture and 
base, covered with longitudinal short zigzag chestnut lines, and 
two or three subequidistant narrow or broader white bands 
sagittately marked with chestnut; the spaces between these 



2'2 NAT1CA. 

bands sometimes plain orange-fawn, or indistinctly or less dis- 
tinctly marked with the zigzag lines. Length, 1 inch. 

Philippines, So. Australia, N. Caledonia. 

N. elegan* and N. euzona, Reclnz, and N. decora, Phil., are 
synonyms. 
N. ZELANDICA, Quoy. PI. 4, fig. 70. 

Smooth, umbilicus with a central white entering callus ; yel- 
lowish fawn-colored, with live white bands painted with chestnut- 
colored arrow-headed markings, and a similarly colored wider 
sutural band. Length, 22 mill. 

New Zealand. 
N. CATENATA, Pliilippi. PI. 4, figs. 71-73. 

Wrinkled-plicate around the suture, umbilicus large, with a 
central entering callus, below which it is wide but shallow, whorls 
more obliquely flattened than in the preceding species, brown 
fawn-color, white around the base, with three prominent narrow 
white bands painted with sagittate chestnut markings; an indis- 
tinct additional band often appearing between the second and 
third ; interior violaceous white. Length, 18 mill. 

Panama to Cape St. Lucas, L. Gal. 

Allied to N. Zelandica on the one side and to N. marochiensis 
on the other. Reeve and Sowerby have confounded it with the 
latter and made it a Mediterranean species ; Reeve's figure 92 a, 
however, represents the species correctly. N. depressa, Gray, 
= N. Grayi, Phil. (fig. 73), is a synonym. Gray's name was 
preoccupied by Sowerby for a fossil species. 

X. MAROCHIENSIS. Gmelin. PI. 5, figs. 74-96; PI. 7, fig. 36; PI. 

8, fig. 49. 

Slightly plicate at the suture, umbilicus largely filled by an 
entering white callus ; color variable, grayish, yellowish gray, 
yellowish brown, or reddish brown, with about four bands of 
arrow-head markings, often running together or more or less 
obscured. Length, -75-1-5 inches. 

W. Africa, W. Indies, Panama to Mazat/d)/, Society 

and Philippine Island*. Australia, etc. 

An exceedingly variable species, with very extended distribu- 
tion. It is not the N. marochiensis, of Lamarck, which is 
Mediterranean, where the present species does not occur. It is 



NATJCA. 23 

equally well known as N. maroccana, Chemn. The typical 
condition of the species is represented by figs. 74, 75. This 
form inhabits W. Africa, West Indies, Panama, Polynesia, etc. 
N. Cayennensis (fig. 80), N. sagittifera (fig. 36), and N. Sou- 
leyetiana (fig. 81), of Recluz, N. undulata, Pease MS., and 
probably N. Manceli, Jouss. (fig. 82), and N. undata, Phil. (fig. 
88), are synonyms. Very probably N. Gualteriana, Petit (PI. 
8, fig. 49), belongs here; it resembles. N. tessellata, Phil., quoted 
below. 

Yar. LUIIIDA, Phil. Figs. 76, 77, 79, 83, 84. 

Yellowish green or whitish, the bands obscure, with faint 
chestnut lines crossing them instead of the sagittate markings, 
suture plicate. 

JV. tessellata (fig. 79) and N. hebraea, Phil., include specimens 
with the color lines more distinctly marked. Occurs mainly in 
Central Polynesia, Sandwich Islands, etc., but also in West 
Indies and W. Africa. 

N. plicatula, Nuttall MS., is a synonym, but the figure given 
by Reeve does not represent it, but more probably N. sordida, 
Phil. N. Mah'eensis, Dufo, which I have described on p. 20, 
may possibly be a large aberrant form of this variety. JV. 
limacina (fig. 83) and N. Marchei (fig. 84), Jouss., belong here. 

Yar. LIVIDA, Pfciifer. Figs. 85-87, 89-92. 

Plicate at the suture ; whitish or yellowish white, often with 
a broad band of ash-color or brown, almost covering the body- 
whorl, sometimes indistinctly doubly banded ; interior of aper- 
ture more or less tinted with chestnut or chocolate, the columellar 
callus chocolate-colored. 

West Indies to Brazil. 

Closely allied to the preceding variety, but distinguished by 
its colored callus ; it is also usually smaller. N. rufildbris, 
Reeve (fig. 86), N. lacernula. Orb. (fig. 87), N. Jamaicensis, 
(fig. 89), N. gracilis, Sowb. (fig. 90), and N. nigrescens, C. 13. Ad., 
are synonyms. N. Menkeana, Phil. (figs. 91, 92), is referred 
here by Morch ; it can scarcely be determined with confidence. 

Yar, UNIFASCIATA, Lam. Fig. 93. 

Yellowish brown, chocolate or olivaceous, whitish towards the 



24 NATICA. 

base, with a more or less distinct narrow yellowish white band 
on the upper part of the whorls ; interior chocolate tinged, 
callus white. 

Panama, etc. 

Large sized like the Var. Chemnitzii, into which it passes. N. 
m usteUna, Swains., may be a water-worn specimen of this variety ; 
it has not been recognized as a species. 

Yar. CHEMNITZII, Pfr. Figs. 94-9G. 

Grayish blue or grayish yellow, with four or live rather indis- 
tinct bands of sagittate markings either light chocolate or 
whitish, often connected by lightning-like whitish longitudinal 
streaks ; interior dark chocolate, banded. Large sized. 

Panama to Mazatlan and W. Africa. 

N. Pritchardi, Forbes (fig. 94), is a synonym of this variety, 
as is also possibly N. Cernica, Jouss. (fig. 96), from Mauritius. 

N. INSECTA, Jousseaume. PI. 6, figs. 98, 99. 

Shell thick, solid ; whitish, with a central, 3^ellow band, and a 
few longitudinal flexuous chestnut stripes above and below it ; 
umbilicus with a slight central entering callus. Length, 8 mill. 

Hob. unknown. 
Possibly a variety of the preceding species. 

N. LINEOZONA, Jousseaume. PI. 5, fig. 9T; PI. 0, figs. 100, 1. 

Umbilicus open, with a small entering callus ; white, with four 
equidistant spiral chestnut lines, and longitudinal chestnut 
flammules extending from the suture to the second revolving 
line, interrupted between the second and third, and again 
extending from third to fourth. Length, 9 mill. 

New Caledonia. 

N. Gaidei, Souverbie (fig. 100), and N. notata, Sowb. (fig. 1), 
are synonyms. 

N. LOCELLUS, Reeve. PI. 0, fig. 2, enlarged. 

Livid flesh-tinged, fulvous brown, obscurely filleted and 
stained ; columella thinly callous ; umbilicus partly filled. 

Habitat unknown. 

Is possibly a variety of N. marochiensis, Gmel. 

X. ASELLUS, Reeve. PI. f>, figs. 3, 4, considerably enlarged. 
Whorls faintly plicately striated at the suture, columella

N. DILLWYNI, Payr. PL 6, figs. 5, 8 ; PI. 5, fig. 78. 

Yellowish or fawn-white, with white bands bearing obscure 
arrow-head markings of light chestnut ; umbilical region whitish, 

partly filled by a callus. 

Mediterranean Sea. 

The original figure (fig. 8) represents an obscurely colored 
state of this species. N. avellana, Phil. (fig. 78) is a nut-brown 
variety, the bands obsolete. The late Dr. J. Gwyn Jeffreys 
considered N. proximo, C. B. Ad., a synonym. 

N. AREOLATA, Recluz. PI. 6, fig. 23- 

Shell rather thin, polished ; yellowish brown, with lighter 
zigzag markings ; umbilicus with a large white entering callus. 
Length, 15 mill. 

Australia, Philippines, Moluccas, Viti Is. 

X. ABBREVIATA, Sowb. PL 6, figS. 6, 7. 

Livid, bifasciately maculated, white-banded and slightly 
wrinkled at the suture ; umbilicus closed by the callus ; aperture 
chestnut within. Length, 12 mill. 

? Mediterranean Sea. 

Possibly a form of one of the well-known European species ; 
only known to me by Sowerby's figures. 

N. MARMORATA, H. Adams. PL 6, fig. 9. 

Whitish, marbled with chestnut and somewhat flammulate at 
the suture, a lighter marbled band on the periphery ; umbilicus 
partly reduced by the superior callus; columellar callus and 
interior tinged with chestnut. Length, 16 mill. 

Canary Islands, Mediterranean. 

It is N. Pretoi, Hidalgo.

and with a central thread-like entering-ridge ; aperture semicir- 
cular, the inner lip straight and mostly detached, bounding the 
umbilicus ; yellowish white, reticulated and spotted in revolving 
series with orange-brown. Length, 15 mill. 

Cape of Good Hope.

Rather thin, semitransparent, whitish, glossy, opaque white at 
the suture ; umbilicus rather narrow, without any internal ridge. 

Length, 8 mill. Torres Straits, Australia. 

No operculum obtained. Is probably a young shell, and cer- 
tainly possesses no characters to entitle it to description as a 
new species. 

N. ANTONI, Phil. PI. 6, fig. 25. 

Smooth, plicatulate at the suture ; olivaceous brown, with two 
spiral series of brown dots, whitish towards the base ; umbilicus 
entirely filled with callus. Length, 14 mill.

Mr. Smith remarks that a young specimen had a pale band 
between the two series of dots which become obsolete in the 
adult.

Obsoletely plicate at the suture ; yellowish, with oblique, 
squarish chestnut markings in four spiral series, the two middle

entering callus. Length, 19 mill. Australia, Japan. 

N. concinna, Bunker (figs. 30, 31) and N. bicincta, Schrenck 
(figs. 32, 33) are only color-varieties of this species.

Philippi remarks that the specimen figured and described by 
d'Orbigny is probably worn and has lost some of its markings, 
as he had seen a Brazilian shell, with four bands, and longitu- 
dinal flames which might well be referred to this species. 

N. COLLARIA, Lam. PL 8, figs. 54, 52, 53, 49. 

Whitish, with irregular, interrupted chestnut streaks, not

N. labrella, Lam.; N. Gambix, Recluz (fig. 53), an old thick- 
ened example ; and N. obstructa, Menke (fig. 49 bis) a faded 
specimen, are synonyms. One of the figures of labrella given 
by Philippi in Kiister (fig. 52) also represents an individual 
denuded of color markings.

peripheral band, and the lower part of the body-whorl also white. 

Length, 1'5 inches. Hong Kong, Singapore, Mauritius. 

It is N.fasciata, Martyn, N. leucozonias, Gmel. 

Var. SPADICEA, Gmelin. Fig. 63. 

The coloring lighter and more diffused, often varying in 
intensity in obsolete bands and spiral lines, the sutural white 
band wider. 
Var. FORSKALI, Chernn. 

On p. 20 I have treated this as a distinct species ; it has been 
regarded by some conchologists as a variety of N. rufa in which 
the coloring is interrupted by the growth-lines causing it to 
form longitudinal oblique stripes instead of being diffused over 
the entire surface. It is very possible that it has been correctly 
placed here. 

N. HELVACEA, Lam. PL 9, fig. 64. 

Whorls somewhat slanting above, then more convex ; umbili- 
cus deep, contracted above by the callus ; a diffused white baud 
at the suture, then a broad diluted chestnut baud extending to 
below the periphery, base white ; on the chestnut space, at the 
periphery is a narrow white band, above it generally another, 
obsolete. Length, 1-5 inches. Singapore. 

Perhaps only a variety of the preceding species, which it 
decidedly resembles in coloration, differing mainly in the 
sloping conical form, and narrower umbilicus with the entering 
callus barely indicated. It is usually called N. globosa, Chemn., 
but this is only a portion of the descriptive phrase used by that 
author to designate the species. It is N. spadicea, var. ft, of 
Dillw., and N. pallens, Phil. 

N. CLAUSA, Brod. and Sowb. PL 9, figs. 05, 67-69, 73.

NATICA. 31 

The late Dr. J. Gwyn Jeffreys identified this with N. affinis, 
Grael. Mr. Yerrill in reviewing Dr. Jeffrey's paper (Am. Jour. 
Sci., 3 ser., v, 472), dissents from this consolidation, because 
Nerita affinis, Gmel., is described as having a nacreous interior, 
as inhabiting New Zealand, and is placed in the umbilicated 
section of the genus. An inspection of the S}*st. Nat. of Qmelin 
shows that in the last particular only is Verrill correct, no 
silvery interior is mentioned, the habitat is said to be northern 
seas and a reference is made to the Zool. Danica, prodr. of 
Miiller. Still, the uncertainty of an unfigured species, insuf- 
ficiently described, and the fact that it is, whether correctly or 
not, placed among umbilicated species, forbid the use of the 
name affinis for the species. 

The synonyms are N. consolidates, Couth, (fig. 67), a southern 
and smaller form, occurring as far southward as Massachusetts ; 
N. septentrionalis. Beck (fig. 69), Greenland; probably N. ?*ussa, 
Gould, Arctic Ocean ; N. operculata, Jeffreys (fig. 73), Japan. 

N. occlusa, S. Wood, a Crag fossil of England, has been 
referred to this species ; I think it distinct, as the spire is much 
more elevated and the whorls more convex. 

Yar. VITTATA, Jeffreys. 

Spire more elevated, body -whorl with two purplish bands, one 
of them showing on the penultimate whorl. 

Greenland. 

This will perhaps prove distinct ; I should think it, from the 
description, more nearly allied to the fossil N. occlusa.

The numerous species here united have received from Sowerby

and others the name of N. didyma, Bolten (fig. 81), an author 
scarcely quotable ; N. vesicalis, Phil. (fig. 92), has also been 
used in this connection ; but N. ampla has priority of position, 
although published at the same time as N. vesicalis. Other 
synonyms are : N. robusta, Dkr., N. Lamarckiana (fig. 86), N. 
Ghemnitzii (fig. 82), N. Petiveriana (fig. 91), and N. intermedia 
of Recluz ; N. problematic*, Reeve (fig. 93) ; N. papyracea, 
Busch (fig. 85) ; N. bicolor, Schrenck, not Phil. ; N. incisa, Dkr., 
and perhaps N. glaucina, Lam., not Linn. 

N. BICOLOR, Phil. PL 11, fig. 94. 

Depressed orbicular, smooth, yellowish brown ITf^e, whitish 
beneath ; umbilicus spirally striate, and few ridged, callus small, 
bipartite, chocolate-color ; aperture dark chocolate above, whitish

N. JOSEPHINE, Risso. PI. 10, fig. 84; PI. 11, fig. 96. 

Depressed globose, widely umbilicated, but the umbilicus 
mostly filled by the flattened callus ; glaucous or yellowish brown 
above, usually lighter or whitish beneath, aperture chocolate- 
colored, white inferiorly. Length, 1 inch. 

Southern Europe. 

It is N. glaucina of Reeve and other authors (fig. 96), not of

depressed area beneath the suture ; umbilicus wide, spirally 
striate, nearly filled by a wide, somewhat overhanging callus, 
whicli is often rugose or obsoletely pitted ; gray, yellowish 
brown, livid, etc., callus and interior of aperture chocolate. 

Length, 3 inches. 

New England to Florida, Gulf Shores of the United States, etc. 

The species figured by Reeve under this name is Lunatia 
Jieros, Say ; Sowerby has also confounded the two species. N. 
Delessertiana, llecluz, combines the t3'pical form with that 
described by Gould as N.fossata (fig. 4). The latter is scarcely 
entitled to even varietal rank ; it is distinguished by the umbili- 
cus being more decidedly striate and bounded by an acute ridge, 
but these features common, perhaps predominant in Florida 
specimens, seem to shade away with the more northern distribu- 
tion. N. Campeachiensis, llecluz (fig. 10), and N. Texasiana, 
Phil. (fig. 5), are synonyms. The bowl-shaped sandy nidimental 
ribbon is a common and very curious sea-shore object ; it is very 
different in form and structure from the capsules of other gastro- 
pod genera. 

N T . RECLUZIANA, Desh. PI. 12, fig. 1. 

Shell solid, conically globose, coluinella strongly callous from 
the superior function of the outer lip, nearly filling the umbilicus ; 
fawn-color, or yellowish brown, lighter or whitish below, interior 
chocolate, callus usually white. Length, 3 inches. 

California, N. W. Coast of Mexico. 

The figure is more than usually conical, the general form being 
somewhat more conical than in N. duplicata. 

N. GLAUCA, Humboldt. PL 11, figs. 97, 98. 

Shell very much depressed, rugosely striate, concavely exca- 
vated beneath, the umbilicus partly overhung by a thin, tongue- 
like callus; whitish, or yellowish, broadly chestnut banded 
above, callus and interior chestnut-color. 

L. 1-25, diam. 2-25 inches.

It is A T . J{oii])1<ui(li, Val. and N. patula, Sowb. The latter 
name should perhaps have priority were it not preoccupied for a 
fossil species.

N. LARVATA, Canefri. PL 23, fig. G4. 

Smooth, very minutely decussately striate, subplicate at the

icus entirely filled by a heavy white columellar callus ; aperture 
chestnut-colored. Length, 18 mill.

The operculum has not been observed, and the systematic 
position of the species is uncertain. 

Section LUNATIA, Gray, 1847. 
N. LEWISII, Gould. PI. 13, figs. 11, 12 ; PL 9, fig. 70. 

Conical globose, obsoletely spirally striate, yellowish white or 
brownish white ; whorls obliquely sloping above with, in old 
specimens, an obtuse angle on the shoulder, defined by a slight 
concave constriction above and below it ; interior chocolate- 
white ; umbilicus narrow and deep,with a tongue-shaped, chocolate- 
tinged callus extended partly over it from above. 

Length, 3-5 inches. 

California, Oregon, etc., Japan. 

The largest species of the genus. Small specimens are regu- 
larly rounded on the upper portion of the whorls ; it is only with 
advancing age that the constriction gradually becomes more 
apparent. The species is generally known as N. herculea, Mid- 
dendorff, but that name was published two years subsequently. 
N. Beiniana, Dunker (fig. 12), a Japanese species, is surely a 
synonym ; and N. algida, Gould (fig. 70) is the young. 

N. IIEROS, Say. PL 13, figs. 13, 1C ; PL 14, figs. 19, 20. 

Yellowish, or brownish white, with obsolete waved minute 
spiral striae, interior flesh-color, columella only slightly callously 
thickened, flesh-color, scarcely contracting the narrow, deep 
umbilicus. Length, 3-4'5 inches. 

Maine to New Jersey. 

N. heros is a northern species, gradually replaced southwards 
by N. duplicata. The latter has been confounded with it by 
British authors. Like N. duplicata, it preys extensively on 
other mollusks ; on the New Jersey coast Mactra solidissima is 
its usual victim, being grasped in the voluminous foot of the 



36 NATIOA. 

Natica, whilst the toLgue bores a circular hole through the shell 
near its beak. The egg-case, like that of N. duplicata, is a com- 
mon sea-shore object. 

N. triseriata, Say (fig. 16) is a color-variety of the young of 
this species ; it has three spiral series of oblique, short chestnut 
streaks, under an olive-gray epidermis. In this state the species 
resembles some of the typical Naticas in coloration. As the 
shell grows larger the markings become more obscure, so that it 
is rare to find a specimen an inch in diameter in which any trace 
of them remains. In other young specimens there are never 
any markings at any stage of growth. N. ampullaria, Lam., 
referred by authors to several species, realty appears to belong to 
this ; but there seems to be no good reason for reviving it at this 
late day. N. pomum, Phil. (fig. 20) appears to be a synonym ; 
its locality is unknown. 

N. PAPYRACEA, Sowb. PL 13, fig. 14. 

Shell thin, globose, yellowish white, obscurely two-banded, 
umbilicus narrow, interior of aperture and columella flesh-color. 

Length, 1/4 inches. 

Hab. unknown. 

Said to resemble the European Helix pomum. It is probably 
the young of one of the preceding species perhaps of N. Lewisii. 

X. LEVICULA, Verrill. PL 13, fig. 17. 

Shell thin and light, globose, with deeply impressed sutures, 
columellar lip nearly vertical, very slightly callously expanded 
above, so as to encroach somewhat on the narrow umbilicus. 

Length, 40 mill. 

Maine, Massachusetts ; deep water. 

Much thinner, with more rounded whorls and different colu- 
mella than N. heros. It is very rare, and has only been obtained 
during recent years by dredging.

suggestive resemblance to the preceding one, of which it may 
possibly be the young.

N. globosa, King (unfigured), from the same locality, appears

umbilicus narrow, slightly contracted by callus above ; yellowish 
white to brownish, interior tinged with chocolate. 

Length, 42 mill. 

China. 

Reeve's example was a young one (fig. 22), and resembles 
Natica tennis, Philippi (not Recluz), so closely (fig. 9), that I 
am inclined to consider that shell also identical ; although it is 
said to be as thin as paper, whilst Fortunei is of medium thick- 
ness. The name tenms was used at an earlier date by Recluz. 
Perhaps N. gilva, Phil. (fig. 72), is identical ; if so, the name will 
take precedence.

Like N. triseriata in coloring, but the whorls are not so

N.pulchella, Risso, is probably the same species, and N. Rizzee,

rather narrow, partly restricted above by the callus. 

Length, 1-5-2 inches. 

Europe. 

Better known under the later name of N. monilifera, Lam. ; 
but it is doubtful whether this species has been properly identi- 
fied ; it is certainly the N. monilifera of most authors. 

The animal is yellowish or drab, with a purplish tinge on the 
upper part, and faintly lineated with brown. The fry are 
globular, orange- colored and umbilicated ; they assume the 
purplish brown markings after they are excluded from the 
leathery band (fig. 44). 

According to Bouchard-Chantereaux the sexual coition lasts 
many hours. The spawn-envelope consists of a great number 
of rounded cells, each containing from 12 to 15 fry, which 
emerge in succession at an interval of two or three days after at 
least two months of foetal life. The eggs are laid usually in 
March and April, and the young are produced in May or June. 
" When just taken, in vigor, and immersed in sea-water, it is 
scarcely possible to contemplate a more beautiful and interesting- 
object, with its shell rising as a globular pyramid from its 
immense circular disk, elegantly marked with fine dark lines on 
clear drab ground." CLARK. 

It is N. canrena, Maton and Rackett, N. castanea, Lam., N. 
Nicolii, Forbes, N. helicina, Brocchi, N. glaucina, Fleming and 
Pennant. N. ampullaria, Lam., has been referred to this 
species, but the figure of it given b} T Delessert is more like N. 
her os, Say. The brown variety called castanea by Lamarck, has 
since been rechristened Yar. Leckenbyi, Marshall.

Elongated conical-ovate, a little compressed and whitish or 
orange-tinted at the suture ; balance of shell fulvous ash-color,

Australia, New Zealand. 

The form is less conical, the color deeper, the umbilicus more 
open than in N. conica. 

N. microstoma, Quoy (fig. 79), is probably a synonym, and N. 
sordida, Swainson, certainly is. I figure a form called by Gray 
N. sordida, var. globosa (fig. 88). 

N. LEUCOPII^A, Reeve. PL 18, figs. 82, 80. 

Differs from N.plumbea only in its more globose form, and more 
open umbilicus ; coloring similar. Length, 1'25 inches. 

Australia. 

Probably only a variety of N. plumbea. N. Strangei, Reeve 
(fig. 80), appears to be identical. 

N. MELASTOMA, Swainson. PI. 18, fig. 81 ; PI. 19, fig. 90 ; PI. 21,

Obliquely ovate, slightly concave at the suture ; olivaceous, 
with a whitish sutural space bearing an indistinct darker band ; 
umbilicus widely excavated, and filled up with a heavy chestnut- 
colored callus ; interior chocolate brown. Length, 1'25 inches. 

Australia. 

Partakes of the characters of Neverita, and appears to be 
somewhat closely related to N. Incei, Reeve, belonging to that 
group. N. sanguinolenta, Desh. (fig. 8), is a synonym. 

N. DUNKERI, Phil. PL 21, fig. 7.

suture, and with indistinct darker bands on the last whorl ; 
umbilical region defined by an angle, umbilicus completely filled 
by the white columellar callus. Length, 17 mill. 

Habitat unknown. 

This species is placed here because Philippi compares it with 
N. melastoma ; I cannot see any resemblance between the two. 
N. Dunkeri has not been recognized by subsequent authors.

Mazatlan. 

N. alabaster, Reeve (fig. 93), is identical. Carpenter thinks it 
a variety of N. uber, VaL; this is not unlikely, but if so, it estab- 
lishes a range of variation in form, umbilicus and callus, which 
may reduce the white Mammas to a single species. 

N. CANDIDISSIMA, Le Guillou. PL 16, fig. 49 ; PL 19, fig. 95. 

Globosely neritoid, very solid, whorls polished, ivory-white;

wide umbilicus ; columellar callus moderate, entering the um- 
bilicus ; white. Length, 1-5 inches.

Distinguished from the other species of the group by the wide 
umbilicus and sloping form of the body-whorl. 

N. ALBUMEN, Linn. PL 20, fig. 5. 

Obliquely depressed, orange-brown ; umbilicus very wide, 
bordered by an angle, white, with a strong central entering

Singapore, Moluccas, Philippines. 

X. COLUMNARI s, Recluz. PL 20, fig, 4. 

Widely globose, pure white, polished, base strongly angulated

ridge and is more or less filled by a strong, broad central enter- 
ing callus. Length, 1*5-2. inches.

Thick, with small spire and but slightly marked suture ; white 
under a slight yellowish white epidermis ; umbilicus narrow, 
bounded by an almost cord-like angle, in the adult nearly filled 
by an entering callus, at which place the columellar lip often is 
cut into one or two mamillary callous deposits. 

Length, 1-25-1-75 inches.

contracted by the broad, thick callus ; white, under a thin 
yellowish white epidermis. Length, 18 mill. 

W. Coast of South America. 

A species of no marked character ; perhaps not distinct from 
N. uber, Yal. N. elongata, Troschel (fig. 84) appears to be 
identical. 

N. UBER, Val. PL It, figs. 61, 66. 

Shell white, polished, under an extremely deciduous thin 
epidermis, columella densely enameled, usually covering the 
upper part of the narrow, deep umbilicus. Length, 1-1*5 inches. 

Peru, Panama, Mazatlan. 

Carpenter wrote of this shell : " The extreme forms of this 
species are so dissimilar as to have warranted their separation. 
An examination of some hundreds of specimens, however, 
shows that there is no consistency in the types. The shell is 
either thin or heavy ; subglobular or very transverse ; with the 
umbilicus quite open, or reduced by the callosity to a mere 
chink ; the callus varying greatly in shape and intensity. The 
callosity projects considerably beyond the aperture, leaving a 
sutural groove. Umbilicus more or less slightly spiral." 

Carpenter includes N. uberina of Adams' Genera, N. ovum, 
Menke, and N. rapulum, Reeve ; also, somewhat doubtfully, N. 
alabaster, Reeve which I have described separately. To this 
list is to be added N. virginea, Recluz (fig. 66), and possibly 
several of the species from western South America dubia, 
Recluz, cora, d'Orb., etc. Finally, I can distinguish forms of 
N. uber from the Polynesian and East Indian N. mamilla in no 
way except by habitat. 

N. PANAMENSIS, Recluz. PI. IT, fig. 00.

moderate, partly filled with an entering callus which is often 
indistinguishably joined to the callus above. Length, 1 inch. 

West Indies, Canary Islands, Brazil, Cape Horn. 

The form appears to be moderately constant, and the epidermis 
is more persistent than in the other species ; otherwise than in 
the latter particular it is undistinguishable from N. uber, of the 
Pacific Coast of N. America. 

The synonymy includes N. Caribdea, Phil. (fig. 56) ; N. nitida, 
Donovan; N. uberina, d'Orb. (fig. 57) ; N. Pfeifferi, Phil. (fig.

(fig. 55), from the Canary Islands; N. puelia, Phil. (fig. 85), an 
elongated variety, very like the JV. corn,, of West Coast of So. 
America ; N. puerilis, Gould (fig. 59), from the same region as 
N. porcellana and N. Philippiana, ISyst (fig. 62) = N. acuta,

Only distinguished from N. mamilla \>y its umbilicus, and 
probably a form of that species. N. Vavaosi, Le Guillou (fig.

white, obscurely banded with light flesh-brown, columella and 
umbilicus chocolate-colored. Length, l'5-2 inches. 

East Indies, Philippines, Western Polynesia, 

Mauritius, Madagascar. 

The above diagnosis will define the species in a restricted 
sense ; the variations of form and coloring are numerous, and it 
would be easy to include most of the other species as varieties 
at the most. 

N. opaca, Recluz is a synonym.

SIGARETUS. 55 

Genus SIGARETUS, Lam., 1799. 
Typical Species. 

S. CONCAVUS, Lamarck. PI. 23, figs. 36, 37 ; PL 22, fig. 34. 

Fawn-colored, with thin white columellar callus reflected over 
the umbilicus ; interior chestnut-brown. Diam. 1-5-2 inches. 

Peru, Chili. San Pedro, California. 

I have before me a specimen collected living at the latter 
locality by Mrs. A. E. Bush. The synonyms are S. maximus, 
Phil. ; S. cymba, Menke ; S. Grayi, Desh ; S. neritoides, Recluz, 
non Linn. ; ? S. latifasciatus, Reeve, not Ads. and Reeve ; S. 
haliotoideus, Reeve, not Linn (figf. 34). According to Dunker, 
this species occurs also on the West Coast of Africa. 

S. NERITOIDEUS, Linn. PL 22, figs. 35, 38-40. 

Less globose than the preceding species, and showing less of 
the body-whorl below. Diam. 1-25-1-75 inches. 

East Indies. 

S. latifasciatus, Ad. and Reeve (fig. 38) ; S. Javanicus, Gray 
(fig. 39) ; S. insculptus, Ad. and Reeve (fig. 40), and S. Leachii, 
Phil., are synonyms. 

S. JAPONICUS, Lischke. PL 23, figs. 44-46. 

Convex, spire somewhat prominent, solid, with slight spiral 
striae, scarcely undulated, the interstices alternating broader 
and narrower, whitish. Diam. 21 mill. 

Japan. 

Differs a little in form from the preceding species, of which it 
may be only a variety, or even a synonym. 

S. L^EVIGATUS, Lam. PL 24, figs. 47-51. 

Convex, thin, translucent white, sometimes obsoletely fasciate 
with chestnut, very finely undulately striate, almost smooth. 

Diam. 1-5 inches. 

Indian Ocean, Java, Australia. 

The synonyms are S. Australis, Hanley (fig. 50), S. zonalis, 
Quoy (fig. 57). 
S. CUVIERIANUS, Recluz. PL 24, figs. 55, 56. 

Depressed ovate, spire small, rather prominent, spirally corded 
throughout ; white, spire flesh-colored. Diam. 28 mill. 

Philippines. 



56 SIGARETUS. 

S. EXIMIUS, Reeve. PI. 24, figs. 52-54. 

Convex, thin, oblique, opaque white, whorls densely spirally 
corded. Diam. 15-20 mill. 

Malacca, Australia. 

S. argenteus, Reeve (fig. 54), from Australia, appears to be 
identical. 

S. MARTINIANUS, Phil. PL 23, figs. 41-43. 

Convexly curved, rather solid, whorls slightly concavely 
impressed round the suture, spirally wave-striated, growth-lines 
somewhat rugose ; chestnut-brown, varying in intensity and some- 
times obsoletely banded, under a thin yellowish brown epidermis? 
becoming whitish on the base, interior chestnut-tinted. 

Diam. 1*5 inches. 

West Indies. 

This is S. zonatus, d'Orb., #. maculatus, S. Petiti, S. Listeri, 
and very probably S. unifasciatus (fig. 43), of Recltiz. 

S. MACULATUS, Say. PL 24, figs. 57, 58. 

Globosely depressed, finely spirally striated ; yellowish white, 
yellowish chestnut at the suture, and bearing on the body-whorl 
two spiral series of spots or maculations. Diam. 1'25 inches. 

Florida. 

In the 3'oung shell, as described and figured by Say (fig. 58) 
the maculations are more distinct and regular than in the adult. 
The species is still a rare one in collections ; it may eventually 
prove to be only a variety of the preceding one. 

S. BIFASCIATUS, Rccluz PL 24, figs. 59, GO. 

Flatly depressed, finely undulately waved-striated ; whitish 
under a yellowish epidermis, with two interrupted bands or series 
of maculations of chestnut-brown color. Diam., 17'5 mill. 

diiint'd, W. A fried. 

S. Menkeanus, Dunker, is a S3'non3'rn. Distinguished at once 
from the foregoing species by its dorsal flattening. 

S. SINUATUS, Recluz. PL 24, figs. 02, 0:5. 

Auriform, convex, thin, pellucid, white, undulalely siriate. 
Diam., 29 mill. JI<><1 Sea. 



SIGARETUS. 57 

S. PERSPECTIVUS, Say. PI. 24, figs. 61, 64. 

More or less flatly convex, white under a light yellowish epi- 
dermis, dorsally covered with slightly waved spiral striae, base 
flattened. Diam., 1-5 inches. 

New Jersey (rare), North Carolina to West Indies. 

Say has compared his species with S. Leachii, Blainv., and 
several authors have identified it with that species ; but the latter 
is really indeterminable, and has accordingly been variously 
interpreted. The synonymy easily includes the following: S. 
depressus, Phil., a West Indian species ; S. Antillarum, Recluz, 
perhaps S. halioitoideus of Lamarck and some other authors (not 
Linnaeus), and Cryptostoma Carolinum of Cuvier. The prob- 
lematical S. Leachii, Blainv., may possibly be here referred. 

S. DEBILTS, Gould. PL 24, fig. 65. 

Flatly convex, spirally striate above, smooth below, a little 
depressed round the suture ; white, more or less stained with 
rusty yellow. Diam., 28 mill. 

Lower California. 

I cannot detect any difference in the shell between this species 
and #. perspectivus. 

S. PHTLIPPII, Weinkauff. PL 24, figs. 66-68. 

Shell small, white, spirally slightly undulately striate. 

Diam., 18 mill. 

Mediterranean. 

This is S. haliotoideus, Philippi, not Linnaeus, and bears several 
additional names in its fossil condition, if these fossil forms 
really are the same species. Some authors have identified the 
Linna'iin S. haliotoideu-s as this species, but it is indeterminable. 
It would be difficult to point out any good distinctive characters 
between this and the preceding and following species. 

S. INCISUS, Reeve. PL 24, fig. 69 ; PL 25, figs. 70-72. 

Dorsally flatly depressed, strongly spirally striated, striae 
slightly undulated ; white. Diam., 1-1 '5 inches. 

Straits of Malacca, Japan. 

Differs from S. perspective in locality only; a comparison of 
the characters of the voluminous soft-parts of these animals will 
be necessary in order to definitely dcnido upon the validity of 



58 SIGARETUS. 

the species. S. undulatus, Lischke (figs. 70-72) appears to me 
to be very similar. 

S. DELESSERTI, Recluz. PI. 25, figs. 73, 74. 

Plano-convex, thin, pellucid, yellowish chestnut, somewhat 
zoned, interior chestnut-colored. Diam., 32 mill. 

Philippines. 

Dr. Weinkauff refers to this species a shell with a well-defined 
chestnut-band (fig. 74); bethinks it scarcely distinguishable from 
S. laevigatus, Lam. 

S. PLANULATUS, Recluz. PI. 25, figs. 75-77. 

Much flattened on the dorsal side, white, under a very thin 
yellowish epidermis, smooth, or with obsolete or very slight 
spiral striae. Diam., 1-25-1-5 inches. 

Zanzibar, Philippines, Australia. 

Distinguished by its smooth flattened surface. It is S. planus, 
Phil., S. Gualterianus, Recluz, S. lacteus, Recluz (fig. 77), S. 
Indica, Gray. 

Section EUNATICINA, Fischer, 1885. 

S. PAPILLA, Gmelin. PI. 25, figs. 78, 79, 87, 88. 

Whitish, under a yellowish epidermis, moderately umbilicated, 
spirally engraved. Length, 33 mill. 

Tranquebar, Moluccas, Japan, Philippines. 

It is S. costulatus, Quoy and Gaimard, S. acuminatus, Ad. and 
Reeve. The following appear to me to be only varieties : S. 
coarctatus, Reeve (fig. 79), S. nitidus, Reeve (fig. 87), S. acumin- 
atus, Ads. and Reeve (fig. 88). 

S. TUMESCENS, Reeve. PL 25, fig. 82. 

Rather thin, ventricose, body-whorl not slopingly flattened. 
Length, 1 inch. 

Hab. unknown. 
Probably only a variety of the preceding species. 

S. OBLONGUS, Reeve. PL 25, fig. 83. 

Resembles S. papilla in form, but the sculpture instead of 
incised linear grooves, consists of numerous raised threads. 

Length, 30 mill. 

Hab. unknown. 

Yery doubtfully distinct from S. papilla. 



SIGARETUS. 59 

S. PELLUCTDUS, Reeve. PI. 25, fig. 84. 

Rather solid, deeply umbilicated, transparent white, spirally 
linearly incised, grooves stronger next the suture. 

Length, 12 mill. 

Malacca. 
S. MAMTLLARTS, Linn. PI. 25, figs. 85, 86. 

Umbilicated, rather thick, white, spirally remotely sulcate, 
suture channeled. Length, 1 inch. 

Seychelles, Madagascar ? 

S. LINNEANUS, Recluz. PI. 25, figs. 89, 90. 

Umbilicated, thin, white, narrowly regularly spirally grooved, 
pellucid. Length, 22 mill, 

Sunda Islands, Philippines. 

S. Lamarckianus,~R,ec\uz (fig. 90), and probably S. cancellatus, 
Swains, (not described), are synonyms. 

S. FIBULA, Reeve. PI. 25, fig. 91. 

Rather solid, umbilicated, white, whorls slopingly flattened 
above, then gibbose, smooth, or obliquely minutely striate. 
Length, 14 mill. 

Singapore. 
Probably an immature shell, perhaps of mamillaris. 

S. PICTUS, Reeve. PL 25, fig. 92. 

Rather thin, deeply umbilicated, smooth, shining, white, with 
obscure revolving bands of short, longitudinal chestnut mark- 
ings. Length, 1 inch.

60 LAMELLARIA. 

Subfamily II. Lamellariidse. 
Genus LAMELLARIA, Montagu, 1815. 

The monographic and anatomical study of this group of shells, 
by Bergh (Mem. Acad. Copenhagen, v, ser. iii, 1853), may be 
consulted with advantage by the student. 

L. LATENS, Miiller. PL 26, figs. 93-95, 98. 

Shell thin, white, semipellucid, smooth, shining. 

Length, 12 mill. 

Norway, Great Britain. 

The animal has a depressed mantle, a little convex over the 
shell , rather smooth , sparsely spotted with brown , densely radiately 
striate below. Sigaretus Stromii, Sars, is a synonym, and I 
think that L, tentaculata (Montagu), Forbes, and Hanley (fig. 
98), also belongs here, as well as L. stomatella, llisso. 

L. PERSPICUA, Linn. PL 26, figs. 96, 97, 99. 

Shell haliotiform, polished, outer lip somewhat contracted 
above. Length, 16 mill. 

Europe. 

Animal lemon-colored with oval clear specks or else tessellated 
with milk-white, or reddish brown with irregular yellow dots ; 
mantle with large tubercles, each surrounded by a border of flake- 
white, and having a small dark central speck. 

Yar. LATA. Fig. 99. 

Shell smaller, broader, more compressed, but not flattened nor 
contracted in front. This variety, says Dr. Jeffreys, may possibly 
equal the preceding species. 

The male and female differ somewhat, and have been separated 
as distinct species. The synonymy includes also L. ampullacea, 
Maravigna ; L. haliotoidea, Miiller, etc. (not Linn.) ; L. Morelli, 
Chiaje ; L. Kindelmaniana, Mich. ; L. producta, Leach ; L. com- 
planata,~Le&ch] L. convexa, Bouchard; L. Audouini, Cantr. ; 
L. zonifera, Bergh (fig. 99) ; L. neritoidea, L. Adansonii, and 
L.flava, Chiaje. 

For a description of the habits of this mollusk see " Structural 
and Systematic Conchology," ii, 208. 



LAMELLARIA. 61 

L. PELLUCIDA, Vcrrill. PI. 26, fig. 100. 

Shell ovate, with oblique spire, delicate, transparent, smooth ; 
aperture broad, ovate, not showing the interior of the spire 
except from an endwise view. Length, 12-16 mill. 

Martha's Vineyard, Mass.; off Delaware Bay, 86-208 fms. 

Animal yellowish brown, mottled with darker, broad elliptical, 
swollen, without tubercles on the back. 

V:ir. GOULDII, Verrill. 

Shell a little shorter, broader, with the spire lower, the apex 
less elevated, and suture less impressed ; last whorl more ventri- 
cose, and the outer lip and aperture more broadly rounded. 
Mantle shorter, broader and higher, with more or less numerous 
low verrucse on the dorsal surface ; pale yellow or yellowish 
white, more or less blotched or speckled with brown, flake-white 
and 3'ellow. Prof. Verrill thinks that part of the differences in 
the soft parts arise from contraction in alcohol ; some specimens 
are intermediate. 
L. TENUIS, Jeffreys. PL 26. figs. 1, 2. 

Thin, fragile, semitransparent, glossy, white, microscopically 
spirally striate, base with a small but distinct umbilicus. 

Length, 2'5 mill. 

St. 16, Atlantic 0. (Porcupine Expedition). 

This young shell is scarcely a Lamellaria ; at least, I know of 
no other species having an umbilicus. 

L. ANTARCTICA, Couthouy. PL 26, figs. 3, 4. 

Shell not observed. Animal with back reticulated on an 
orange-brown surface, the reticulating lines bordered with white 
dots, and the intervals covered with larger ones of bright yellow; 
under side of mantle rose-color, narrowly margined with dark 
red ; foot lemon-color, paler towards the middle. 

Length, 1*6 inches. 

Orange Harbor, Patagonia. 
L. PR^ETENUIS, Couthouy. PL 26, fig. 5. 

Back of animal greenish ochraceous, longitudinally wrinkled, 
with a short cinereous pubescence ; under side of mantle and 
foot light brownish yellow. Length, 1*25 inches. 

Shell not observed, 

Orange Harbor, Patagonia. 



62 LAM ELL ART A. 

L. PATAGONICA, Smith. PI. 26, figs, 6-8. 

Shell large, very fragile, transparent hyaline, with a slight 
milky cloudiness, showing very fine growth-striae ; whorls 3^, 
suture deep. Diam., 1 inch. Mantle dirty yellow, with lines 
and blotches of light vandyke brown, the under surface around 
the foot marked with light-colored striae. 

Patagonia. 

Is possibly identical with L. Antarctica, Couth. 

Section CHELYNOTUS, Swains.

Animal with a thick mantle, tuberculate, the tubercles large, 
subhexagonal, black, anteriorly produced and bifid ; foot narrow, 
brownish. Length, 85 mill. 

Tonga Tabou. 

This and several following species belong to a section charac- 
terized by the produced anterior portion of the mantle and 
narrower foot. Very probably L. Berghi is a synonym of the 
present species, or of the next one ; Coriocella nigra of Blain- 
ville (fig. 16) is also perhaps identical, but cannot be made out 
with certainty. L. Cuvieri, Bergh (fig. 18), appears to be an 
individual contracted in alcohol. 

L. MAURITIANA, Bergh. PI. 27, fig. 17.

hardly elevated, suture distinct ; aperture very effuse, rounded ; 
exterior marked by growth-lines, crossed by microscopic revolv- 
ing striae. Length, 6'5-8 mill.

Mr. Dall described a var. orbiculata, which proves to be only 
sexually distinct ; the differences being such as mark the sexes 
in the British species. 

L. DIEGOENSIS, Dall. PL 27, figs. 21, 22. 

Malleate, polished, white, translucent, orbicular, with deep 
suture, volutions to apex visible from below. Length, 16 mill.

Less calcareous, and more globosety elevated than the pre- 
ceding form, as well as larger, and malleated, with no trace of 
spiral striae.

V. PLICATILIS, Miiller. PI. 28, figs. 55-57. 

Nearly membranous, translucent, with obscure spiral striae and 
irregular growth-lines ; yellowish or yellowish brown ; whorls 2^, 
ventricose in fresh, but compressed (from collapse) in dried 
specimens, suture deep; epidermis tough, but readily separated 
into slight fibrous plaits. Length, -5 inch. 

The animal is bright orange color, sometimes speckled with 
yellow. 

Northern Europe, Greenland. 

Is Bulla flexilis, Montagu. V. coriacea, Pallas, may be only a 
large variety. 

Y. CORIACEA, Pallas. PL 27, figs. 49, 50. 

Membranaceous, corneous, subpellucid, rugosely striate ; 
whorls 2-|, the last very large, expanded. 

Kurile Islands. 
Y. CRYPTOSPIRA, Middendorff. PL 27, figs. 45-47. 

Shell narrower, more elongated than V. laevigata^the columellar 
lip forming an angle with the outer lip below ; coriaceous, or with 
a very slight calcareous deposit. Length. 10 mill. 

Ochotsk Sea, Alaska, etc. 

Undetermined and Unfigured Species. 

Y. BERNARDI, Martens (PL 28, fig. 58). Hob. unknown. 

Y. PUSIO, A. Ad. Straits of Corea.

Subfamily III. YANIKORIN^E. 
Genus YANIKORO, Quoy and Gaimard, 1832. 
Y. CANCELLATA, Lam. PL 29, figs. 60, 61. 

Broadly patulate, rather thick, cancellated with oblique rather 
lamellar ribs and thin spiral ridges ; epidermis yellowish brown. 
Diam. 1 inch. 

Isl. of Vanikoro, 



68 VANIKORO. 

V. Quoyi, Recluz, is a synonym. Many of the following 
" species " are probably only slight and unstable modifications 
of this form. 

Y. GUERINIANA, Recluz. PI. 29, fig. 62. 

Ribs stronger than in the preceding species, the spiral ridges 
seen in their interstices ; umbilicus much wider. Diam. 15 mill. 

Philippines. 
Y. EUGATA, A. Ad. PI. 29, fig. 63. 

Spire elevated, whorls rather strongly plaited, the deep inter- 
stices spirally ridged, umbilicus moderate. Diam. 10 mill. 

Hdb. unknown. 
Y. CIDARTS, Recluz. PL 29, fig. 64. 

Rather thin, clathrate with nearly equal longitudinal and spiral 
sculpture, umbilicus narrow, almost closed. Diam. 22 mill. 

Philippines. 

Ribs not so strong as in F. cancellata, spire somewhat more 
elevated. 

Y. LTGATA, Recluz. PL 29, figs. 65-72. 

Rather thin, longitudinal sculpture low oblique folds, becom- 
ing obsolete, spiral sculpture thread-like ; umbilicus moderate. 

Diam. 1 inch. 

Philippines, Paumotus. 

A little more elevated than F. cidaris, with larger umbilicus. 
F. Petitiana (fig. 66), F. helicoides (fig. 68), and F. plicata, Recluz 
(fig. 67), appear to me to be very slight modifications of the 
type form, principally in the oblique riblets being somewhat 
more or less prominent; whilst in Y- Deshayesiana (fig. 69) ? 
F. Blainvilliana (fig. 71), and F. Souleyetiana (fig. 70), of Re- 
cluz the growth sculpture is obsolete or faint. Of this form 
F. delicata, Pease (fig. 72), appears to me to be the young; it 
comes from the Paumotus. 

Y. CLATHRATA, Recluz. PL 29, figs. 73-77, 83. 

Rather thick, cancellating sculpture subequal, umbilicus mod- 
erate. Diam. 10 mill. 

Nab. Polynesia, Australia, I. Bourbon. 

Nothing but the smaller size appears to distinguish this from 
forms of the last species. N. granulosa, Recluz (fig. 74); F. 
semiplicata, Pease (fig. 75); F. Cumingiana, Reel. (fig. 76), and 



VANIKOKO. 69 

F. disparilis, Desh. (fig. 83), are synonyms. N. SigaretiformiSj 
Potiez, has been considered synonymous; it is really unrecog- 
nizable. I add as a synonym V. granifera, Pease (fig. 77), from 
Ins. Jarvis. The granular appearance of the original figure 
(copied by me) is an exaggeration, and does not agree with the 
types before me. 

Y. SULCATA, d'Orb. PL 29, figs. 18, 79. 

Revolving riblets most prominent, but rendered somewhat 
granular by the crossing of the growth sculpture ; umbilicus 
moderate. Diam. 9 mill. 

West Indies. 

Only distinguished from forms of the last species by locality. 
I figure a very young shell, in which the spiral ribs are much 
more prominent than they remain in the later whorls. F. anomala, 
Adams (unfigured), is probably the same. 

Y. STRIATA, d'Orb. PL 29, figs. 80, 81. 

Rather thin, with fine spiral raised lines ; umbilicus moderate. 
Diam. 8 mill. 

Cuba. 

Probably only a variety of F. sulcata. 

V. lamellosa, d'Orb (fig. 81), is probably the young of this 
species, and F. oxychone and F. Vitrinaeformis, Morch (un- 
figured), synonyms. 

Y. ROSE A, Recluz. PL 29, fig. 82. 

Cancellated, pink; umbilicus widely open. Diam. 5 mill. 

Is evidently a juvenile shell. 

Moluccas. 
y. ELATA, Sowb. PL 29, fig. 84. 

Elevated, thin, very finely decussated, umbilicus narrow. 
Diam. 9, alt. 10 mill. 

China Sea. 
y. ACUTA, Recluz. PL 29, figs. 85, 86. 

Thin, white, subpellucid, very delicately sculptured, the spiral 
lines the most prominent; spire acute, umbilicus wide, aperture 
somewhat obliquely produced. Diam. 7-10 mill. 

Lord Hood"** Is., Cape Natal, Moluccas. 

The above rather incongruous localities are given by Recluz ; 
Morch adds West Indies in considering the species a synonym 



70 VANIKORO. 

of V. lamellosa, d'Orb. I do not think it adult. V. imbricata, 
Pease (fig. 86), appears to be a younger state of the same species. 

N. RECLUZIANA, Ad. and Angas. PL 29, fig. 87. 

Elevated, acuminated, spire cancellated, last whorl almost 
smooth, umbilical channel moderate, long. 

Diam. 9, alt. 10'5 mill. 

N. So. Wales. 
y. SOLIDA, Sowb. PL 29, fig. 88. 

Solid, globose, upper whorls cancellated, rounded, last whorl 
finely spirally and concentrically striated, columella tortuous, 
umbilical channel long and narrow. Diam. 9, alt. 11 mill. 

Hab. unknown. 
y. SEMTSOLUTA, Sowb. PL 29, fig. 89. 

Sculptured spirally with beaded ribs and concentrically with 
thin striae, canal elongated, rather broad. Diam. 6, alt. 10 mill. 

East Indies. 
The lips are so produced as scarcely to touch the body-whorl. 

Y. ORBIGNYANA, Recluz. PL 29, figs. 90-92. 

Shell deeply and broadly cancellated with strong distant spiral 
ribs and concentric ridges ; umbilicus narrow, deep. 

Diam. 4 mill. 

Habitat unknown. 

Is V. Quoyi, Adams, not Recluz, and V. Gaimardi, Adams 
(fig. 91), V. tricarinata, Recluz (fig. 92), and V. Gumingiana of 
Reeve and Sowerby, not Recluz. 

y. DISTANS, Recluz. PL 29, fig. 93. 

With distant longitudinal lamellae, and closer spiral striae in 
the interstices ; umbilicus broad, semilunar. Alt. 6 mill. 

Philippines. 
y. FOVEOLATA, Montr. PL 29, fig. 95. 

Strongly ribbed, crossed by thinner but prominent spiral 
sculpture ; umbilicus very narrow. L. 5 mill., diam. 4 mill. 

New Caledonia. 
y. CUVIERTANA, Recluz. PL 29, fig. 94. 

Rather patulous, thin, very finely decussately sculptured, last 
whorl obliquely flattened, umbilicus broad. Diam. 10 mill. 

Hab. unknown.

Unfigured or Undetermined Species. 
Y. TUBEROSISSIMA, Montagu. 

Y. GLABRISSIMA, Brown = GLABERRINA, ReclllZ. 

The above two species erroneously introduced into the British 
catalogues are probably young West Indian shells, but indeter- 
minable ; the latter probably a Neritina.

FAMILY CALYPTR&ID&. 

Shell limpet-like, with a more or less spiral apex, interior 
simple or parti}' occupied by a shelly process, variously shaped, 
to which the adductor muscles are attached. 

Animal with a distinct head and lengthened muzzle ; eyes near 
the external base of the tentacles ; only one branchial plume is 
developed. 

The bonnet-limpets are found adhering to stones and shells ; 
most of them appear never to quit the spot on which they first 
settle, as the margins of their shells become adapted to the 
irregularities of the surface beneath, whilst some wear away the 
space beneath their foot, and others secrete a shelly base. The 
form and color of the shell both depend somewhat upon the situ- 
ation in which it grows ; those found on the inside of the mouth 
of dead shells are generally flat or even concave above and 
white ; those attached to the outside of shells are convex and 
colored. The animal is supposed to feed on sea-weed and ani- 
malcules ; and an individual kept alive in a glass by Professor 
Forbes, ate a small nudibranch (Goniodoris),its fellow prisoner. 
Both Calyptrsea and Pileopsis sometimes cover and hatch their 
spawn under the forepart of the foot. The inner process or shelf 
of the shell forms a support for the viscera. The branchia of 
this family is composed of narrow, rigid filaments, and Gray has 
created for this type the division Plocamobranchia. 

Subfamily Calyptraeinae. 

Muzzle slit at its extremity ; tentacles subulate, carrying eyes 
near their base ; foot short, rounded oval ; the single branchia 
finely and deeply pectinated ; adductor muscle horse-shoe shaped 
or oval ; jaws rudimentary ; radula with a subquadrangular 
middle tooth, the margin pectinated, the central cusp longer ; 
lateral teeth with denticulate margins ; marginals narrow, curved, 
denticulate (plain in Capulus). 

Shell conic, patelliform, the summit more or less spiral; 

(101) 



102 

interior polished, porcellanous, simple or chambered by a dia- 
phragm or variously shaped process, supporting the viscera; 
peristome entire. No operculum or attached base. 

Subfamily Hipponycinas. 

Animal without foot, properly so-called ; adductor muscle 
fixed to the interior of the shell above, and below either to the 
substratum excavated in the surface of the body on which the 
mollusk is attached, or to a ventral calcareous opercular-like 
piece which completely closes the aperture ; inferior surface of 
the body encircled by a sort of ventral mantle with papillary 
margins, resembling the dorsal mantle and morphologically cor- 
responding to the epipodium ; muzzle long, deeply incised and 
terminated by two lateral lobes ; tentacles long, subulate, the 
eyes sessile towards their base ; a spatuliform growth below the 
neck ; radula as in Calyptrseinse, the marginal teeth denticulated. 

Shell conical, peristome simple, with or without an internal 
process attached at the apex, but an opercular piece normally 
forms the base to the shell and is soldered to the surface of the 
body on which it lives attached. The embryonic Hipponyx has 
a spiral shell. 

These gastropods have so aberrant an appearance that they 
have been classed as Rudistes (Sowerby), and Brachiopoda 
(Morris), the opercular piece being taken for a ventral valve. 

Synopsis of Genera. 

I. CALYPTR^EINJE. 

Genus CRUCIBULUM, Schum., 1817. 

Differs from Calyptraea (described below), in having an in- 
ternal cup-shaped lamina, the margin, of which is entire, and 
which is attached on one side to the inner wall of the shell. 
Temperate and tropical seas. 

Dentition, PI. 30, fig. 2. 

The synonyms are Trelania, Catillina, and Neleta, Graj', 
1867 ; Dispotsea, Say, 1826, and Calypeopsis, Lesson, 1830. 

Section BICATILLUS, Swainson, 1840. 

Cup open and reduced to a curved lamina, adhering for its 
entire length. Indian Ocean. Fossil in the miocene of Aqui- 



103 

taine. The development of the cup appears to be arrested in 
this group ; but I am inclined to believe that this is not always 
the case. 

Genus CALYPTRJ3A, Lam., 1799. 

Shell conical, trochiform, with central, spiral apex, aperture 
basal, circular, entire ; interior furnished with a spiral diaphragm, 
the columellar margin of which is twisted, forming a false 
umbilicus, free margin convex. 

The animal (PI. 30, fig. 7) has a short head, the muzzle bilobed, 
tentacles rather short, cylindrical, with the eyes on tubercles 
at their exterior base ; foot short, rounded, obtuse behind, angu- 
lar in front. 

Dentition, PI. 30, fig. 3. 

The recent species are tropical and subtropical in their distri- 
bution ; fossil, the genus first appears in the lower Cretaceous. 
Galerus, Humphrey, 1797, and Mitella, Leach, are synonyms. 

Subgenus GALEROPSIS, Conrad. 
Spire more elevated. O. excentricus, Gabb. Eocene. 

Subgenus INFUNDIBULUM, Montfort, 1810. 

Summit central, whorls plicate, axis imperforate. 

Tropical and subtropical. Found in the tertiary of the United 
States and West Indies. Trochita, Schum., 1817, Trochatella, 
Lesson, 1830, and Clypeola, Gray, 1867, are synonyms. 

Subgenus SIGAPATELLA, Lesson, 1830. 

Shell oval with lateral apex, interior plate with submarginal 
axis, the free margin concave. Haliotoidea, Swains., 1840, and 
Trochella, Gray, 1867, are synonyms. 

Genus CREPIDULA, Lam., 1799. 

Shell oval, limpet-like, with a posterior, generally lateral spiral 
apex ; interior with a lamina or shelf, covering the posterior half 
of the aperture. 

Animal with head depressed, laterally dilated, muzzle 'short, 
bilobed, tentacles short, subulate ; foot short, subtruncate in 
front, rounded behind. 

Dentition, PI. 30, fig. 4. 



104 

Adhering to shells or stones, and modifying the form and 
surface of their shells in accordance with the inequalities 
of their place of attachment ; thus, the same species will be 
convex if on the outside of a Natica, concave if on its inte- 
rior wall, ribbed in either direction, according to its attachment 
on the exterior of a Pecten, etc,; others again are attached in 
groups one over another on each others' shell. 

The distribution is world-wide ; the individual species have a 
wide range, which, added to their great variability, as in 
attached shells generally, has caused an enormous specific 
synonymy. Genetically, the synonyms include Sandalium, 
Schum., 1817, Crypta, Humphrey, 1797, Tylacus and Lyro- 
scapha, Conrad, Crepipatella, Lesson, 1830, Proscenula, Perry, 
1811. 

The following sections are founded on characters of little 
importance or stability : 

Section G-ARNOTIA, Gray, 1867. 

Apex median, posterior, detached and distant from the 
peritreme. 

Section CRYPTA (Gray, in part, 1867), Fischer, 1885. 

Surface spinose. 

Section IANACUS, Morch, 1852. 

Shell depressed or concave above, apex posterior, but 
slightly lateral. 

Section SIPHOPATELLA, Lesson, 1830. 

Lamina produced in front, its columellar margin subtubular. 
Ergxa, H. and A. Adams, 1854, and Noicia, Gray, 1867, are 
synonyms. 

Section SPIROCRYPTA, Gabb, 1864. 

Summit of shell posterior, lateral, submarginal, spiral ; 
internal plate attached to the margin on the lower or outer 
side, curving upwards and inwards, and uniting with the oppo- 
site side at a considerable distance. The plate is subspiral, 
thus approaching Infundibulum and Galerus. G. pileum, 
Gabb (Struct, and Syst. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 78). 

Cretaceous of California. 



105 

[Genus GALERICULUS, Seeley. 

This genus has two distinct septa, the larger one originating 
below the incurved apex, the smaller one at the base. Only the 
cast is as yet known ; the shell has the form of a Helcion, but 
its upper surface has not been observed. G. altus, Seeley 
(S. and S. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 79). Cretaceous.] 

Genus CAPULUS, Montfort, 1810. 

Shell conical, provided with epidermis, apex posterior and 
directed to the right, more or less spirally curved ; aperture 
basal, the lip continuous, no interior process, the horseshoe- 
shaped muscular impression on the inner wall. 

Animal with lengthened rostrum ; tentacles subulate, with 
the eyes on bulgings at their outer bases ; mantle margin 
fringed ; foot suborbicular, simple ; gill-plume placed obliquely 
across the mantle-cavity, the elongate linear laminae partly 
exposed. Central tooth of the radula trapezoidal, the reflected 
margin triangular, having a long sharp median and very fine 
lateral cusps, laterals multicuspidate, marginals simple (PI. 30, 
fig. 5). 

The few species inhabit the seas of Europe, the East and 
West Indies, Western America, etc. Fossil, the genus com- 
menced with the Silurian, and about twenty species are known. 

These animals are said to feed on the seaweed that grows 
around them, and on small marine organisms. They appear to 
have but limited locomotion, being usually adherent and modi- 
fying the margin of the aperture of the shell according to the 
surface on which they live. Sometimes they wear away the 
surface beneath their foot, forming shallow excavations, or they 
secrete an imperfect shelly base by means of that organ. The 
egg-cases are membranous and are attached in a tuft at the 
front of the foot under the neck. 

Pileopsis, Lam., 1812, and Actita, Fischer de Waldheim, are 
synonyms. 

Section CAPULACM^EA, M. Sars. 

Shell thin, patelliform, with thin epidermis; apex not spiral, 
somewhat inclined to the right and posteriorly. Boreal Seas. 
Piliscus, Love'n, 1859, and Pilidium, Midd., not Forbes, are 
synonyms. 



106 CALYPTR^ID^l. 

Section BROCCHTA, Bronn, 1827. 

Irregularly conical, apex slightly spiral, directed to the left ; 
left margin with a profound sinus, its posterior half folded. 
Tertiary, 2 sp. C. sinuosa, Bronn (S. and S. Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 
80). A single living species is mentioned but not described as 
C. reductus, Desh., Isle of Bourbon. 

Section THYCA, H. and A. Adams, 1854. 

Shell conical, longitudinally grooved, transparent, slightly 
curved. Indian Ocean, a single species on Asteria. 

Subgenus METOPTOMA, Phillips, 1836. 

Shell depressed, conical, elliptical, truncated behind, apex not 
spiral, posterior, slightly inclined posteriorly. Carboniferous, 
Europe, United States. G. Solaris, Kon. (S. and S. Conch., t. 
Ixxxiv, f. 52). 

In the above-named work I included this among the sections 
of Patella, which it resembles exteriorly ; the muscular im- 
pression is like that of Capulus. Tryblidium, Lindstrom, 
1880, is a synonym. 

[Subgenus SPIRICELLA, Rang., 1828. 

Shell flattened, elongated, with a sinistrally situated apex, 
and a corresponding cavity in the interior ; muscular impression 
very indistinct. 

C. unguiculus, Rang. (S. and S. Conch., t. Ixv, f. 96, 97). 
Miocene, France. 

The relations of this group are obscure ; it may belong near 
Umbrella.] 

Genus AMATHINA, Gray, 1842. 

Shell depressed, oblong ; apex posterior, not spiral, with 
three strong ribs radiating from it to the anterior margin which 
is produced into three points. 

Animal with elongated head, the eyes sessile on the margin 
behind the short tentacles ; mantle margin entire, a tentacular 
median filament at the hind part. Indian Ocean. 

Genus PLATYCERAS, Conrad, 1840. 

Shell depressed subglobose, subovoid or obliquety subconical ; 
spire small ; volutions few, sometimes free and sometimes con- 



CALTPTR^ID^!. 10T 

tiguous, without columella ; aperture more or less expanded, 
often campanulate, and sometimes with the lip reflexed ; peris- 
tome entire or sinuous. Surface striated or cancellated, often 
spirally ridged or plicate, and sometimes strongly lamellose 
transversely, nodose or spiniferous. 

There are fifty fossil species, Silurian to Carboniferous. 
United States, Europe. P. ventricosupi, Conr. (S. and S. Conch., 
t. Ixiv, f. 81, 82). As Platyceras was parasitic on crinoids and 
other marine organisms, the shells are very frequently deformed. 
The subglobose species resemble the Velutinae, but there is 
every degree of variation in form between these and non-spiral 
shells. From among these the following groups have been 
rather arbitrarily separated. Acroculia, Phillips, 1841, is a 
synonym ; in the opinion of some naturalists, Conrad's name 
(being preoccupied in insecta) should yield to this. 

Section ORTHONYCHIA, Hall, 1843. 

Body of the shell straight or curving, gradually diminishing 
above, arched or in some degree spiral at the apex, with the 
last volution or more quite free. P. spirale, Hall (S. and S. 
Conch., t. Ixiv, f. 83). 

Section IGOCERAS, Hall, 1859. 

Shell cancellated and often plicate. P. pileatum, Conr. Si- 
lurian, U. S. 

Section EXOGYROCERAS, Meek and Worthen, 1868. 

Shell sinistrally spiral, with rudimentary columella. P. 
reversum, Hall. 

[Genus DIAPHOROSTOMA, Fischer, 1885. 

Under this new name, Dr. Fischer includes Platyostoma, 
Conrad (not Klein, etc.), and its section Strophostylus in this 
subfamily. I have placed it in Naticidse, p. 9.] 

[ADDISONIA, Ball, 1882. 

Dr. Fischer has included this patelliform genus here on 
account of its lingual dentition, and the existence of a male 
copulatory organ ; for both conchological and anatomical reasons 
I prefer to retain it near Fissurella.] 



108 

II HIPPONYCIN^E. 
Genus HIPPONYX, Defiance, 1819. 

Shell thick, obliquely conical, non-spiral, apex somewhat pos- 
terior and directed backwards, surface rugose or longitudinally 
grooved or cancellated ; muscular impression horse-shoe shaped ; 
base of attachment (opercnlar piece) when present, thick. 

Animal oval or suborbicular, conical or depressed ; foot very 
thin, a little thickened towards the margins ; head globose, sepa- 
rated from the body by a neck-like constriction ; eyes upon 
swellings of the tentacles. 

Dentition, PI. 30, fig. 6. 

Distribution : Warm seas. Fossil : Cretaceous, Eocene. U. 5., 
Europe. 

The synonyms are Cochlolepas, Klein, 1753; Krebsia, Morch., 
and Amalthea. Schum., 1817. 

The same species will either excavate a cavity to which it 
adheres, or secrete a testaceous support. The section Amalthea 
was formed for certain species which were supposed to differ 
from Hipponyx in not secreting a shelly base, but forming 
instead a cavity in the surface of shells. 

Genus MITRULARIA, Schum., 1817. 

Shell conical, more or less irregular with a subcentral, sub- 
posterior, subspiral apex ; interior with a central, half cup-shaped 
lamina, open in front, free on the sides, attached at the apex ; 
basal plate thickened. 

Animal with broad muzzle, tentacles lanceolate, with eyes 
externally near their base, the neck lobed on either side. 

Inhabits temperate and tropical seas, distribution world-wide. 
The synonymy includes Cemoria, Risso ; Mitrella, Trochilina, 
Trelania and Poculina, Gray, 18f>7 ; Lithedaphus, Owen, and 
Calyptr&a, Lam., 1801, not 1799. Lamarck at the later date 
adopted for his type a species belonging to the present group to 
which it has since been generally applied, whilst the name of 
Galerus, Humphrey, has been the received designation for the 
Calyptreea, Lam., of J799. I follow Dr. Fischer in correcting 
this matter, and like him displace the earlier but ill-founded 
name of Hupaphrey for the latter. 



109 

[Genus HARTTIA, Walcott, 1884. 

A cast indicating a patelliform shell within which extends a 
low broad ridge, originating at one end and supports a broad, 
subcordate shield-like expansion covering most of the other end. 
H. Matthew, Walcott (PJ. 30, fig. 1), Cambrian, St. John, N. B. 
A group of doubtful affinities.] 



The following extracts from a lecture by P. P. Carpenter, 
delivered under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution, and 
printed in its Annual Report for 1859, scarcely require apology 
for their introduction here, in view of their intrinsic interest. 
Carpenter and Dr. Gray agree in making large reductions from 
the number of published species, although, as a matter of course, 
they differ somewhat in detail. 

" The Calyptraeids (' slipper ' and ' cup-and-saucer ' limpets) 
found on the Spondylus valves are the most beautiful and varied 
that are known in any part of the world. The shells are large 
and thin, delicately furrowed and as it were engine-turned, with a 
profusion of tubercles, which sometimes rise up into long hollow 
spines. The colors vary from white to a rich black-brown, or 
are variously mottled with sienna, while the shape may be either 
an elevated cone or a widely spreading disk. Sometimes the same 
individual will begin with one form and sculpture-pattern, and 
suddenly change to another ; others again seem to develop per- 
manent and widely differing varieties. Occasionally a starved or 
diseased Mazatlanian will present the aspect which is normal on 
the colder shores of South America ; exchanging its thin texture 
and delicate sculpture for a coarse, solid, and nearly smooth 
shell. So far the views lately propounded with such ability by 
the celebrated author of the ' Voyage of the Beagle ' meet with 
sufficient confirmation ; and yet amid all its changes, there is a 
habit of growth, hard to describe and yet easily recognized by 
the practiced eye, which not onty unites the most aberrant forms, 
but at once separates them from neighboring species found on 
the same coast and appearing very similar to the common ob- 
server. The ordinary plan of only preserving in collections a 
few picked specimens displaying marked peculiarities, is by no 
means favorable to the elimination of truth in reference to spe-

cific variation. These extreme forms are very naturally described 
as distinct species, the intermediate connecting links not passing 
before the view of the naturalist. On showing to a distinguished 
author a carefully eliminated suite of Mazatlan specimens con- 
necting the smooth, thin, flat Grepidula squama, Brod., with 
the coarse, arched, laminated C. Lessonii, passing through the 
forms C. nivea, C. B. Ad., and C. striolata, Mke., he complained 
that I had ' kept all the puzzling shells.' In the very useful work 
of Messrs. H. and A. Adams, on the ' Genera of Recent Mol- 
lusca,' these forms appear under different subgenera. It is not 
fair to blame authors for these mistakes, which naturally result 
from the imperfection of the material on which they work. 
But the prevalence of such errors should lead us to embrace 
every opportunity of studying large numbers of specimens, both 
from the same and different localities. Patience, accuracy, and 
honesty may thus render as valuable service to science as bril- 
liant genius, and may supply the materials from which some 
master-mind may hereafter develop the most important generali- 
zations. 

" Those who describe species from minute differences founded 
on individual specimens, might do well to study the plates ap- 
pended to the 'B. A. Report on the West Coast Mollusca.' 
Take e. g. the Crucibulum spinosum, pi. 9. The shell is at first 
spiral, like a snail. It then surrounds its entire margin with a 
rim, which is the first beginning of what in the adult becomes 
the ' saucer ' or outside shell ; that is the hardened skins of the 
animal's body (for the shells are not to be regarded as a house, 
constructed for the animal to live in, but as an integral part of 
the animal itself, like the feathers of birds or our own nails and 
hair). At the same time it raises a slight lamina from the labi- 
um or ' pillar-lip ' which ultimately becomes the ' cup/ At first, 
however, it is like the ' deck ' in the Slipper limpets, from some 
species of which it can scarcely be then distinguished. The 
Crepidulae, however, continue their deck in a horizontal direc- 
tion, while the Crucibulum turns the edges upwards at a more 
or less obtuse angle. Gradually during the progress of adoles- 
cence, this angle becomes right and then acute, the outer shell 
meanwhile taking various forms, round, oblong, or irregular, 
according to the nature of the surface to which it has chosen to 



CALYPTR1EITUE. Ill 

adhere. Often this immature state is continued to a late period ; 
if permanent it would belong to the subgenus Dispotaea (Sa} 7 "), 
of Messrs. Adams. But normally the sides of the cup close in, 
while its body becomes greatly swollen in front. This cup now 
assumes the form which is alwa3*s characteristic of the species 
under every modification of external growth ; being well rounded 
in C. imbricatum, angular at the side in C. spinosum, and with 
the sides flattened against each other in C. radiatum. In C. 
rude, the adolescent stage is very soon completed and the cup 
is permanently detached from the side of the shell, forming a 
veritable ' cup and saucer,' one too after the fashion so prevalent 
in America, where the cup-handle has never been formed. It is 
a remarkable fact in geographical distribution, that the forms 
intricatum and rude, which are typical in the west tropical 
fauna of Central America, reappear but very sparingly on the 
Caribbean shores ; while G. spinosum, which is far more common, 
more variable and more widely distributed being found (under 
various names) from California to Chili has not yet been dis- 
covered on the eatern side. 

" Again, the C. radiatum, which is the most delicately formed 
of the whole group, confines itself to the equatorial western 
seas, not having been found further north than the Panama dis- 
trict. An extremely remarkable specimen of C. spinosum was 
dredged by Mr. Cuming in comparatively deep water. The net 
brought up a large stone with a small hole in it, on looking 
down which Mr. Cuming perceived a number of spines, as 
though a sea-urchin was lodging there. A blow of the hammer 
discovered the existence of a large cavity within, communica- 
ting with tlie external world only through this narrow opening. 
In the hollow of this cavity lay the limpet, turned as it were 
nearly inside out. The creature had gone to live there when 
young, and being of sedentary habits, it had not occurred to 
him that he might be imprisoned for life by his own corpulence, 
else he would probably have made his escape before he had 
grown too large. As it was, he grew larger and larger, and as 
the walls of his prison rose up round him on every side, he was 
obliged to flatten out his shell till it became a plate, instead of a 
cone. At the same time, his body protruding into the hollow, 
the cup protruded along with it till it stood considerably 



112 OALYPTILEID.E. 

beyond the shell, of which it was normally an inside partition. 
Thus our Calyptraeid was fixed as immovably as any Pholas, but 
with this difference in their condition : that the Pholas, being 
designed for that kind of life, is not troubled with useless heads 
and eyes, and, moreover, is furnished with two long pipes to 
convey the water to and from the mouth and gills ; while the 
Crucibulum had eyes simply to stare at the wall in the dark, 
feelers to push the stone, and a long ribbon tongue, armed with 
hundreds of teeth, to rasp the water. And while encumbered 
with these unnecessary appendages he had not the benefit of 
water-pipes, to bring what alone this lock-jawed subject had to 
feed upon. For this want, however, the economy of the animal 
provided a remedy. The C. spinosum in its normal growth is 
either spinose or not ; the flatter forms being almost always 
smooth. The spires are developed from prolongations of the 
mantle (or thin shell-bearing skin of the animal), which appear 
at irregular intervals, though in regular pattern. Sometimes 
the whole shell is covered with crowded prickles C. Mspidum, 
Brod.), sometimes a few long spines appear at the edge on one 
side of the otherwise smooth shell. Sometimes the spines are 
few, large and hollow (C. tubiferum, Less.), each of the outer 
row communicating through a hole within the inner margin, 
which is afterwards filled up. Our prisoner worked for his 
living by constructing very large, long and open spine-pipes, 
which, instead of standing up at right angles to the shell, were 
directed back towards the narrow opening in the stone. It 
would appear that by this means the animal was simply supplied 
with nourishment, for the shell was above the ordinary size. 

"The most common Calyptrseid on the backs of our Spon- 
dylus valves, however, was Crepidula aculeata, Gmel. It was 
first described from West Indian specimens, which are generally 
dead and worn in collections, and afterwards re-described from 
fine West Coast shells, as C. hystrix and C. echinus, Brod. 
The stunted northern form was named G. Californica by 
Nuttall. 

" Perfect specimens brought by Mr. Dyson from Honduras 
correspond so exactly with those from Mazatlan that it is hardly 
possible to resist the impression that they are identical. Speci- 
mens from South Africa, from Sydney (Australia) and from the

Pacific 'Islands, also present no marks of specific distinction. 
It appears to be one of the ubiquitous species, of which several 
are found in various genera, and some are known to have existed 
far back in time. 

" The Crepidula not only undergoes the changes of form from 
nearly flat to deeply arched, but from obese to elongated, which 
every observer of the common slipper-limpet of the Atlantic 
(C. fornicata, abundant from the icy shores of the St. Lawrence 
to the tropical waters of the Gulf of Mexico) knows to prevail 
in that species ; but in sculpture it may either be crowded with 
short spines (C. echinus, Brod.), or have a few radiating lines 
of longer spines with nodulous interstices (C. hystrix, Brod.), 
or be covered with an irregular mass of spiny knobs (normal 
state), or lose the spines altogether in roughened striae (smooth- 
water form), or even become almost destitute of sculpture, like 
some northern specimens of the stunted variety (C. Calif ornica, 
Nuttall). Through all these changes it is recognized by its 
spiral stomattelloid growth exemplifying a section of the genus, 
the extreme forms of which approach Trochita ; and by its 
beautifully waved deck-margin, which resembles a ^^^^. The 
pointed centre, as the shell increases in size, generally leaves a 
characteristic line on the surface of the deck, passing up to the 
vertex. But often the point is rounded off, and even degener- 
ates into a broad wave. In one specimen co-ordinate with this 
degeneracy, a sharp angle was abnormally formed on one of the 
sides, so as to give the margin the aspect of a brace turned the 
wrong way, thus ^-Y ' ; a very good specific distinction, if no 
intermediate specimens had been found. A series of deck- 
margins belonging to this and the following species, will be 
found represented on plate 8 of the British Association Report, 
Fig. 1, f. 3, g. The best means of distinguishing the species of 
slipper-limpets from each other was found to be the shape of the 
nuclear portion and the mode of growth of the very young shell. 
Whatever be the abnormal character of the adult, it did not 
appear that the offspring had a tendency to the same degeneracy, 
but rather to the resumption of the normal type. In the case of 
local varieties, the peculiarities are reproduced, because they 
depend on circumstances which affect all alike. But in such cases 
as those under consideration, where the extremes and all the 
8 



114 OAL YPTILEID^E. 

intermediate forms of variation are found in the same locality, 
the changes depending on the accidents of individuals, it is not 
yet proved that the idiosyncrasies are transmitted. In fact, the 
frequent instances in which the individual itself changes its 
form and sculpture at different periods of its life, is against 
such a hypothesis. 

" It is a fact worth noticing that while some species of shells 
are extremely variable, others, inhabiting the same localities, are 
ver} T constant in their characters. These are seldom widely 
diffused, and are often rare in individuals. A few young speci- 
mens of such species were found among the slipper-limpets on 
the spondyli ; but the bulk of the specimens belonged either to 
G. aculeata, which, as we have seen, is a somewhat ubiquitous 
species, or to C. nivea, which, under many shapes and many 
names, spreads over the principal parts of the Pacific coast of 
America, representing there the very distinct C.fomicata of the 
Atlantic. Two extreme forms were described by Broderip, from 
Mr. Cuming's collection ; the one', C. squama, thin, flat, and 
smooth; the other, C. Lessonii, solid, often arched, and covered 
with concentric laminse. These sometimes appear at regular 
intervals, and seem to be the normal and unique sculpture of the 
shell. It appears, however, that (7. squama (which is the calm- 
water form), if exposed to rougher influences, arches its back, 
'adds layer after layer of porcellanous matter, hiding the color 
rays, and leaving the margin like the edge of a quire of paper. 
Now, if co-ordinate with this laying on of extra coats, the crea- 
ture advances forward, turning up the previous portion, the form 
Lessonii is produced ; in general very roughly and irregularly, 
which is the C. striolata of Menke, but sometimes very delicately, 
with fine sculpture between the laminae as described by Brod. It 
is common to find shells living for some time as squama, and 
suddenly plunging into the Lessonii types, with one or two 
strong laminae. Every stage of intermediate form was found 
among the Mazatlan shells. The degraded specimens of the 
Chilian seas form a part of the C. protea of d'Orbigny a 
convenient receptacle, as the type specimens in the British 
Museum show, for the dead and puzzling shells which the 
author did not know where else to place. The ordinary condi- 
tion, intermediate between the extremes first described, is G. 



CALYPTR^ID^E. 115 

nivea of C. B. Adams. As it is the normal state, the usual rules 
of priority have been set aside, and C. nivea taken for the name 
of the species, leaving squama and Lessonii for the principal 
varieties. The White Slipper is known under all forms (when 
in good condition), by its shaggy, light-green skin, and by the 
very peculiar character of the nuclear whirls. These are 
remarkably small, though the shell is large, standing out from 
the surface, of a reddish tinge, and crowded with regular trans- 
verse ribs. The characters have been observed in specimens of 
all the forms, although the influences which produce Lessonii 
drawing the shell away from the vertex, generally lead to its 
abrasion. Sometimes the White Slipper goes to live, when 
young, into the empty burrow of a boring mussel. In these 
cases, as soon as it has grown to the width of its cave, it is 
obliged to develop itself longitudinally, at the same time turning 
up its sides in the vain attempt to get more room. The corres- 
ponding slipper limpet of the California coast appears to have a 
special fancy for this mode of life, as most of the specimens 
sent have assumed the form now described. It was first found 
by Mr. Nuttall, and distributed by him a G. exuviata. It was so 
published in Dr. Jay's catalogue. Dr. Gould, however v figured 
and described it as 0. explanata. It had been previously figured 
by Valenciennes, in the Voyage de la Venus, as G. perforans, 
that author supposing that it had made the burrow in which it 
was found. The designation representing an untruth, it must 
yield to the latest name, which alone is accompanied by a de- 
scription. A very singular groove, not found in the Mazatlan 
specimens, appears in all the specimens of G. explanata, and 
gives name to the shell. It is, however, a mere accident of 
growth, differing in every individual, and often not appearing 
till the animal approaches maturity. A specimen in situ, in the 
Smithsonian Institution, fortunately reveals the cause of this 
unique appearance. The creature goes to live in at the outer or 
pipe-end of the burrow of a bivalve, which remains at the other 
end after the animal has perished. The growth of the shell is 
normal till it has attained the breadth of the pipe, be that greater 
or less. It then increases down the pipe, the vertex of the shell 
being always turned towards the outer end. There is no groove 
at this period of its growth, and when the vertex is rubbed off 



116 

(as it generally is in elongated specimens), it can hardly be dis- 
tinguished from similar specimens of the White Slipper. But 
as soon as it has reached the bottom of the pipe, where the 
dead bivalve (generally a Petricola, a creature with rather short 
siphons), still remains undecomposed, it suddenly encounters an 
unexpected obstacle. It wedges itself under this (to it) mighty 
globe, and turns its delicate mantle, exuding the shelly skin up 
the sides of the cavity, but in vain. There is nothing for it but 
to retrace its steps, and back out. As it does so, every new 
portion formed under the arched bivalve repeats the previous 
concave impression, and the grooved slipper is the result. The 
sharp instrument of the explanation of one author, and the 
" perforation " of the other, is nothing but the little rounded 
u clam " tightly wedged at the bottom of its burrow ; and the 
same slipper-limpet freely developed under unconstrained influ- 
ences, is probably the C. navicelloides of Nuttall, to ascertain 
the characters of which we are still in want of perfect specimens. 
" To return to the White Slipper on the back of our Thorn 
Oyster. Among the young shells which appear to the naked 
eye to be the young C. nivea, were some which under the micro- 
scope displayed a much larger but smooth and imbedded nuclear 
portion. On comparing these with similarly situated specimens 
from the west coast of Africa and from other places, I found 
them exactly identical. They probably belong to the C. ungui- 
formis of Lamarck. Now, it so happens that Prof. C. B. Adams, 
who in general described every shell of Atlantic types as a new 
species, if found on the Pacific coast, in this one instance felt 
constrained to adopt the I^amarckian name for the unguiform 
Slippers of Panama. It is not certain that in this one instance 
he was correct. Some of the specimens he distributed under 
the name are undoubtedly compressed and inverted forms of his 
own C. nivea ; for every species may take the form of ungui- 
formis when grown inside of a dead spiral shell, especially with 
a dead hermit crab pressing against it. But there seems suffi- 
cient evidence to believe that while each coast has its special 
species of slipper-limpets, each one of which assumes protean 
changes, there is in this one species which has been scattered, it 
may be in dead shells, and on ballast, round the world, and to 
be distinguished from all neighboring species by the peculiar

character of the nuclear whorls. It is too much the custom 
among collectors, and even among naturalists, to examine and 
preserve only well-conditioned adult specimens. More may 
often be learned from deformed and ' ugly ' shells ; and espe- 
cially from series in all ages of development." PHILIP C.

Dr. Jeffreys writes : "It would seem that this mollusk seldom,

the sinuosities of the stone. Both shell and pebble were en-

crusted by nmllipore, and had the same appearance. The mark 
of adhesion is glossy, but does not show any excavation. Ac- 
cording to Andouin and Milne-Edwards the female hatches her 
eggs, and keeps the fry between her foot and the foreign body 
to which she adheres ; her patelloid shell thus serves hot only to 
cover and protect herself, but is also a shield for her offspring. 
The eggs are yellow, and inclosed in membranous capsules, which 
are flattened, transparent, and filled with an albuminous matter. 
These little sacs are from six to ten in number, connected one 
with another by a pedicle, and arranged like the petals of a rose ; 
each capsule contains ten to twelve eggs. The fry resembles 
that of Velutina leevigata in shape and sculpture ; and the ani- 
mal at this stage of growth has large ciliated neck-lobes, as in 
other Gastropoda." Brit. Conch., iii, 275.

Lamarck described this species as a Trochus, and Deshayes in 
removing it to the genus Calyptraea, changed the specific name 
to Lamarckii. I have thought it best to restore the original 
name, although rather objectionable. In no case could Deshayes' 
name be used, for the next in priority is Sowerby's equally 
objectionable C. comma-notata ; then follow C. Novae- Zelandiae, 



CREPIDULA. 123 

Lesson, C. tomentosa (figs. 96-98), and C. maculata (fig. 99) of 
Quoy. It is also C. Chinensis of Chenu, not Linn. 

Genus CREPIDULA, Lam., 1799. 

The slipper-limpets are quite as variable as either of the pre- 
ceding groups, and the definitive arrangement of the species 
will require continued observation of the growth of shells from 
the same brood under diverse conditions. I take the species as 
conventionally recognized, although fully aware of some facts 
which, at least, militate strongly against the retention of some 
of them. As in most attached genera the form and sculpture 
are influenced by the surface of attachment ; thus a species flat 
and suborbicular when attached to a similar surface will become 
high and compressed if growing on the spire of a narrow- 
whorled shell. 

C. unguiformis, Lam., is generally found on the inside of 
large univalve shells, such as Naticas, Fulgurs, etc., and has the 
upper surface concave, and the color white; and Gray thought 
that the same species became 0. fornicata, Gmel., convex, with 
radiating chestnut spots, when attached externally ; but ungui- 
formis whilst appearing to prefer the interior station, yet is 
sometimes found on the outside of shells, still preserving its 
white color and long shape, but becoming somewhat convex. 

The admitted cosmopolitan distribution of C. unguiformis 
points to a large geographical range in the other species ; yet 
the protected station usually chosen by that species is probably 
conducive to its spread and acclimation. 

Gray writes (Zool. Proc., 737, 1867): "Messrs. H. and A. 
Adams formed the genus lanacus for the white flat specimens of 
this genus. All the specimens of the different species that take 
up their residence in the inside of the shell assume this form 
and color. It has been suggested that, instead of being depend- 
ent on the accident of locality, their living in such places is a 
habit peculiar to the species, and a proof that they are of a dis- 
tinct kind. This theory is set at rest by the fact that some 
specimens of the shell show the two states ; that is to say, an 
animal growing on the outside of a shell has moved to the inside, 
and an animal that commenced life on the inside of a shell has 



124 CREPIDULA. 

moved to the outside. In the first case the apex of the shell is 
convex and brown, and the circumference white and flat; in the 
other the apex is flat and white, and the circumference brown 
and convex. I have seen one specimen in which the animal has 
moved twice, and the shell has a brown tip and margin and a 
white flat intermediate space." 

I have seen many thousands of specimens of the American G. 
fornicata and G. unguiformis, but never noticed any showing 
the change above recorded. 

The spinous ribbing of G. aculeata is very probably not a spe- 
cific character, yet it occurs in connection with a general facies 
which is easily recognizable as specific, although not readily 
definable. 

C. FORNICATA, Linn. PI. 36, figs. 1-8. 

Smooth, whitish or pink white, with radiating irregular chest- 
nut lines often broken up into spots, interior more or less stained 
with brown or violaceous. Length, 2 inches. 

East Coast of United States from Maine to Florida; 

West Indies , Brazil, etc. 

I figure a ribbed specimen (fig. 2). The synonymy includes 
C. gibbosa, Defrance ; C. nautarum ( Humph. ),Morch ; G. Riisei, 
Dunker; G. maculosa, Conrad; C. depressa, Sa} r , has been 
referred to C. unguiformis, Lam., but specimens presented Jto 
the Philada. Academy by Mrs. Say are young fornicata. C. 
protea, d'Orb., includes this species and G. unguiformis, and is 
said to extend from West Indies to Patagonia. I am somewhat 
in doubt as to the West Coast distribution of this species as 
assumed by Dr. Gray. Most of the Pacific forms which that 
naturalist has associated with C. fornicata appear to me dis- 
tinguishable by perhaps slight, but sufficiently recognizable 
characteristics; C. arenata, Brod. (figs. 4, 5), however, said to 
occur at St. Elena, West Columbia, where it was obtained by 
Cuming, appears to be absolutely identical, and G. Patagonica, 
d'Orb. (figs. 6, 7), differs only in being more rounded in outline 
(in the figure) than the usual form of fornicata. C. Aplysioides, 
Reeve (fig. 8), from Rio Janeiro, may be added. The shell 
which Reeve has figured under the name of G. nautiloidea, Les- 
son, also appears to be referable here. 



CREPIDULA. 125 

C, GLAUCA, Say. PI. 36, fig. 9. 

Rather flat, with a sharp pointed apex, yellowish brown with 
radiating rows of chestnut spots, interior dark chestnut brown, 
more or less mottled or spotted, septum white, diaphanous. 

Length, *75 inch. 

Long Island Sound to North Carolina. 

The darker color and smaller size distinguish this from 
the preceding species, but I am not at all sure that it is more 
than a varietal state of the young shell. Reeve's figure probably 
represents a colorless G.fornicata. 

C. CONVEXA, Say. PI. 36, fig. 10. 

Convex, with somewhat trigonal outline, high back and ob- 
liquely beaked apex ; whitish or glaucous radiately lined with 
chestnut spots, with sometimes larger nebulous chestnut-purple 
markings. Length, *75 inch. 

Nova Scotia to Florida. 

The form of this species is due to its attachment on the crus- 
tacean Eupagurus longicarpus and the gastropod Ilianassa 
obsoleta. The preceding species has been supposed identical 
with this, and simply modified by attachment to broad flat sur- 
faces ; this may be so, yet the present is a smoother, lighter-colored 
heavier shell. Its identity with G.fornicata is not improbable. 
C. navicula (Dunker), Morch;a West Indian form, insufficiently 
described, and unfigured, is probably a synonym. 

C. ADSPERSA, Dunker. PL 36, figs. 11,12. 

Ovate, more or less convex, rugulosQ, white with chestnut

Apex slightly beaked, whitish, maculated and divaricately 
stained with purplish chestnut spots. Length, 1-25 inches. 

Senegal ; Indian Ocean ? 

It is very doubtful whether this is distinct from G. fornicata ; 
a sharper apex and divaricating color-lines appear to be its chief 
points of difference.

Rather flat, concentrically laminarly frilled, frequently ra- 
diately costulate, white, sometimes radiately lineated with chest- 
nut. Length, 1 inch. 

West Coast of Central America to Monterey, Cat. 

C. fimbriata, Reeve (figs. 20, 21), said to come from "Van- 
couver's Straits," C. squama, Brod. (fig. 23), C. nivea, C. B. Ad., 
C. striolata, Menke, and probably C. navicelloides and C. 
exuviata, Nutt., C. explanata, Gould (figs. 24, 25), and C. per- 
forans, Yal., are synqnyms. C. explanata has the form of C. 
unguiformis, but Carpenter places it here. 

Carpenter (Mazat. Cat., 281), describing this species under 
Prof. C. B. Adams' name of G. nivea, writes as follows con- 
cerning it : 

' This creature, when flat 'and finely grown, is the C. squama 
of Broderip. The same shell, when coarsely grown, more convex 
and without brown stripes, is C. nivea, C. B. Ad. When the 
layers of which it is composed, instead of lying regularly one 
over the other, are slightly prominent, it becomes C. striolata, 
Mi-iike. When they are drawn forwards and project it becomes 
C. Lessonii, Brod. The name of Prof. Adams is retained, in 
preference to the prior ones of Broderip and Menke, as repre- 
senting the normal condition of the shell. 



CREPIDULA. 127 

" In the squama stage it appears as a very thin, flat shell ; with 
the vertex generally lustrous brown, sometimes white ; from this 
radiate a greater or less number of brown lines, sometimes more 
or less broken into dots, gradually losing themselves in the 
white texture of the shell, sometimes reappearing at the margin, 
sometimes altogether absent. Yery rarely a rich lustrous brown 
is developed inside, shading into a sea-weed green. The shell is 
covered with a copious yellowish green epidermis, which lies in 
a fringe round the sharp margin. In its ordinary state, the 
texture has a tendency to run into layers. The epidermis does 
the same, the layers being in shreds and very copious." 

C. DORSATA, Brod. PI. 37, figs. 26-30 ; PI. 38, fig. 41. 

Thin, wide, irregularly longitudinally corrugated or rudely 
ribbed, or smoothish, whitish or yellowish, sometimes violaceous 
within ; septum bilobed. Length, -75 inch. 

Mazatlan to California. 

So distorted is this species in some instances that the apex is 
somewhat distant from the margin, and the attachment of the 
septum is lateral, so that it was described as a Calyptnea. 

C. bilobata, Gray (figs. 26, 27), is a smooth, chestnut-rayed 
form of this species; (?. lingulata, Gould, is described from a 
worn specimen of it. G.foliacea (fig. 28), and C. strigata (figs. 
29, 30), Brod., referred by Carpenter to the next species, appear 
to me more likely to belong here, if they are not C. aculeata, 
Gmel. 

C. DILATATA, Lam. PI. 37, figs. 31-34 ; PI. 38, fig. 42. 

Oval, broad, rather thick, smooth, but with distinct growth- 
lines ; whitish, under a yellowish brown, thin epidermis, interior 
white, but the margin usually stained or radiately lineated with 
chestnut ; apex much curved to the side of the shell. 

Length, 1-5-2-5 inches.

128 CREPIDULA. 

C. grandis, Midd. (fig. 33), C. minuta, Midd. (fig. 42), and G. 
nummaria, Gould (fig. 34), the latter from the interior of shells, 
hence flattened. It appears to me that nummaria might as well 
be referred to C. Lessoni as here, and that C. explanata, which 
is placed in the synonymy of G. Lessoni, could also be equally 
well placed here ; further, these flat, interior-growing specimens 
of Crepidula from the West Coast have about as much right to 
a distinctive place as has C. unguiformis. 

C. MONOXYLA, Lesson. PL 37, figs. 35, 36. 

Whitish, elongated, contorted, high-convex. 

Length, 1 -25-1 '5 inches. New Zealand. 

This species does not appear to have any special character- 
istics ; a G. unguiformis growing on the outside of a narrow 
shell would be apt to take on the same form. G. contorta, Quoy 
(figured), and G. profunda, Button, are synonyms. 

C. ONYX, Sowb. PI. 3T, figs. 31, 38; PL 38, figs. 43-50; PL 
39, fig. 59. 

Rather thick, rugose, smooth or rarely radiately costellate, 
chestnut or chocolate-colored within and without, sometimes 
obscurely chestnut-rayed, the septum usually white. 

Length, 1-5-2 inches. Panama to California. 

Carpenter, in his Mazatlan Catalogue, endeavors to distin- 
guish G. rugosa, Nuttall (fig. 37), from this species; the latter 
having a shaggy epidermis, whilst that of rugosa, though some- 
what lamellar, is glossy, never shaggy. The numerous speci- 
mens before me, from many localities, do not seem to establish 
this distinction, and probably the shaggy epidermis is the 
result of rough water. I suspect that G. adunca, Sowb., with 
its sharp elevated beak, although placed from this character in 
a distinct section, will prove to be an onyx growing upon more 
restricted surfaces. 

The synonymy will include G. hepatica (fig. 38), perhaps of 
Deshayes, at any rate, of C. B. Adams ; but whether the C. 
hepalica so identified by Krauss, or his var. complanata (fig. 45), 
from the Cape of Good Hope, are identical, remains doubtful : 
I can see no difference, judging from the figures. C. immersa, 
Angas (figs. 46, 47), from Australia, also appears the same. To

these are to be added C. amygdalus, Yal., (7. Cerithicola, 

Ad. (juvenile), C. ma^ginalis, Brod. (figs. 48, 49), C. lirata,

with a sharp hooked beak distant from the margin, smooth ish, 
chestnut-brown, under a light yellowish brown epidermis, with 
sometimes indistinct rays, more or less broken up into spots, 
interior also chestnut color. Length, 1 inch. 

Panama Sts. of Fuca. 

A very common West Coast form, the distinctive character 
of which may result mainly from its attachment ; the coloring 
does not differ from G. onyx. The synonyms are G. solida, 
Hinds (fig. 52), C. rostriformis, Gould (figs. 53, 53 a), G. 
uncata, Menke, C. jixsurata, Sowb. (fig. 60), and G. rostrata, C. 

B. Ad. G. excavata, Brod. (figs. 54, 55), is a large form, a 
variety of which has been named fusco-punctata by Morch. G. 
incurua, Brod. (figs. 39, 40), is normalty radiately ribbed, but 
intermediates occur between it and the smooth typical form.

thick, lamellate. Length, *5 inch. 

Morch refers it here doubtfully. H. trigonus, Gmel., is said to 
be flatter than subi-ufus, with stronger radiating sulci, and to 
this^ Morch doubtfully refers H. barbatus, var. costdlatvx of Car- 
penter; it is perhaps only a variety of subrufus. 



HIPPONYX. 135 

II. BARBATUS, Sowb. PL 40, figs. 2, 3. 

Shell depressed, apex suberect, subposterior, whitish, concen- 
trically and racliately striated, with a pilose brownish epidermis, 
aperture margin smooth. Length, '75 inch. 

Alazatlan, Galapagos Is., Polynesia, Japan, 

Cape Good Hope. 

It is H. australis, Menkc, not Lam. H. pilosus, Desh. (fig. 3), 
appears to be the same, and has priority, but the species is gen- 
erally known as H. barbatus. 

H. GRAYANUS, Menke. PL 40, figs. 4, 5. 

Apex subcentral, ribs fewer, coarser and more nodulous than 
in H. barbatus, with softer, shorter, fewer and more irregular 
hairs, base flat but very broad, rather rounded at the inner 
margin, crenated at the outer, with numerous lamellae, undulated 
but not serrated. Length, '75 inch. 

Galapagos, Panama, Mazatlan, Sandwich Islands. 

Described as H. radiatus, Gray, a name preoccupied by Quoy 
and Gaimard, and by Desires, the latter for a fossil species. I 
doubt its distinctness from H. barbatus. 

H. CRANIOIDES, Carp. PL 40, figs. 6, 7. 

Rounded, convexly planate, the apex subcentral, radiately 
.striate, concentrically laminate. Length, *85 inch. 

Vancouver's Island. 

H. tumens, Carp. (fig. 7\ is a somewhat higher form, less 
worn by attrition, but having the essential characters of the 
above ; it is reported from Sta. Barbara and S. Pedro, CaL 
Neither species has very good claims to recognition as distinct. 

H. RADIATUS, Quoy and Gaimard. PL 41, fig. 8. 

Shell radiately broadly costate, apex submedian. Dimensions 
and habitat unknown. 

This species was found on a Pterocera chiragra, consequently 
is probably Polynesian. The figure is no doubt magnified, but 
the dimensions are not given. It appears to me not unlike H. 
australis, Quoy. 



136 iiiPPONYX. 

H. AUSTRALIS, Quoy. PI. 41, figs. 9-15. 

Rather thin, with broad flat radiating ribs and narrow inter- 
stices, concentric sculpture rather faint or obsolete, apex erect, 
subposterior ; whitish, or the interstices of the ribs sometimes 
orange-brown, interior usually stained with orange-brown. 

Length, 22 mill. 

Australia, New Guinea, N. Zealand, Mauritius, 

Viti Is., Japan. 

H. acutus, Quoy (figs. 12, 13), H. suturalis, Quoy (figs. 14, 15), 
H. cornucopias, Hutton, H. orientalis, Dufo, are synonyms. It 
is possibly Amallhea conica, Schum. a name which would 
have priority if its identity could be fully established ; another 
older name which possibly belongs to this species is Patella 
cassida, Dillw. 

H. IMBRICATUS, Gould. PL 41, figs. 16, U. 

Apex subceutral, surface rayed with forty to fifty ribs, which 
are trellised by concentric growth-lines, yellowish white, chestnut- 
color stains the interior. Length, 12 mill. 

Sandwich Islands. 
H. CRYSTALLINUS, Gould. PL 41, figs. 18, 19. 

AVhite, ctrystalline, apex marginal, recurved, radiately ribbed, 
ribs somewhat undulated by the growth-lines, aperture margin 
thick behind, thin anteriorly. Length, 12 mill. Hab. unknown. 

Described as a Capulus. 

H. GBANULATUS, A. Adams. PL 41, figs. 20, 32. 

Shell Capuliform, with compressed sides and posterior, declined 
apex ; reddish brown, with white granules disposed in radiating 
series, and subflexuous concentric lines, reddish brown within. 

Length, 16 mill. 

West Coast of Africa. 

Was found attached to the spine of a Cidaris, and reproduces 
its granulations ; probably on a larger smooth surface the species 
would be very different in form and ornamentation. 

H. DANIELI, Crosse. PL 41, figs. 21, 52. 

Apex posterior, sharp, carmine, rest of surface brownish, radi- 
ately striate, interior chestnut-colored, more or less varied with 
carmine townrds the sipox. Length, 22 mill. 

New Caledonia. 



MITRULARlA. lot 

The oblique undulating ribs of the original figures, reproduced 
by me, are not of specific importance, resulting from a similarly 
sculptured surface of attachment ; they do not exist on other 
specimens. The species is mainly characterized by its attenu- 
ated apex, thinness and color. 

H. TICAONICUS, Sowb. PI. 41, figs. 23, 24. 

Suborbicular, with the apex posterior and recurved, closely 
radiately striate, whitish, under a pale fulvous hairy epidermis. 

Length, 15 mill.

M. EQUESTRIS, Linn. PL 41, figs. 25-32 ; PL 42, figs. 33-56 ; PL 

43, figs. 57-67, 70. 

Nearly orbicular or irregular, rather solid, varying to papy- 
raceous, rudely convex ; whitish, or more or less stained with 
light yellowish; radiately closely minutely ridged, or striated, 
outer edge of base often closely crenulated. Basal plate con- 
cave, platter-shaped, with puckered edge. Diam. 1'25 inches. 
China Sea, Philippines, Indian Ocean, 

Princess Isl., W. Africa, W. Indies* 

W. Coast of Central America, Galapagos Is. 
I have interpreted this species in accordance with general 
usage, the Linnean species being indeterminable. The synonomy 
includes: ? M '. Dillwynii, Gray, AT. umbo, Reeve (fig. 27), M.

(figs. 45, 46), M. pileopsis, Quoy (figs. 47, 48), M. chlorina, 
Gould (figs. 49-51), M. radiosa, Gould (tig. 52). These forms 
represent a great variety in shape and sculpture, and it is not 
wonderful that, with the ideas prevalent among conchologists a 
quarter of a century ago, they were described as distinct 
species. I have, for convenience, separated a series of irregu- 
larly corrugated forms as a variety, but they really connect 
insensibly with the type. 

Yar. TORTILIS, Reeve. Figs. 53-59, 61-67. 

Surface irregularly corrugated and folded, the folds longi- 
tudinal, oblique or concentric, sometimes taking every direction, 
and so thick as to obscure the radiating strue. 

West Indies, Philijjpines. 

This form is very usual, especially in West Indian specimens. 
M. diaphana (fig. 54), Reeve, M. Martiniana, Reeve (fig. 55), 
M. uncinata, Reeve (fig. 57), M.papyracea, A. Ad. (figs. 58, 59), 
M. cornea, Reeve (figs. 61, 62), M. cicatricosa, Reeve (fig. 56), 
M. saccharimeta, Reeve 'fig. 63), M. Balanoides, Reeve (fig. 64), 
M. porosa, Reeve (figs. 65, 66), and M. fibulata, Reeve (fig. 67), 
are all synonyms. 

Var. ACULEATA, Reeve. Fig. 70. 

Radiately striate and scaled, or short spinose. 

Honduras. 

M. tubifera, Gray (unfigured), from the same locality, is doubt- 
less a synonym. 

M. CORRUGATA, Brod. PI. 43, figs. 68, 69. 

Suborbicular, apex subcentral, rugosely radiately ribbed and 
striated, ribs scaly towards the margin ; whitish, or light yellow- 
ish brown. Diam. 40 mill. 

Guacomayo, Central America. 

Found by C timing, under stones at 14 fins. A beautiful form, 
but perhaps not specifically distinct from M. equestris. 



MITRULARIA. 139 

M. TECTUM-SiNENSE, Lam. PI. 43, figs. 71-74. 

Whitish, radiately striated or nearly smooth, with concentric 
lamellte, free at the edges. Diam. 1 inch.

The well-known " Chinaman's hat." M. scabies, Reeve (fig. 74), 
is a S3 r nonym, and connects with varieties of M. equestris.

FAMILY XENOPHORID^E. 

Shell depressed or conical, trochiform, with carinated periph- 
ery, not nacreous, soldering shells, stones, etc., to its upper sur- 
face. Operculum large, horny, subannular, with lateral dextral 
nucleus, muscular impression sinistral, semilunar, extending the 
whole length. 

Animal with long, simulated muzzle, elongated, subulate ten- 
tacles, with sessile eyes at their external base ; foot small, used 
for jumping, not walking, with the anterior portion expanded, 
posteriorly tapering ; gill long, composed of narrow, laminae and 
filaments. Dentition, 2-1-1-1-2; the central tooth subtrigonal, 
multicuspid, laterals large, subtriangular, the margin reflected 
and multicuspid, the marginals very narrow and long, arcuated 
(PL 30, fig. 8). 

These mollusks scramble along like the Strombs ; they extend 
and fix the front dilated part of the foot, and draw the posterior 
portion up to it, jerking the shell forwards at every movement ; 
this mode of progression is adapted to the nature of the surface 
on which they move, which is usually composed of the debris 
of dead shells. The shell resembles a Trochus, but the texture 
is not nacreous. The peculiarity of this tribe is the habit of 
agglutinating foreign bodies to the upper surface of the shell, 
which is carried to such an extent in some instances as to con- 
ceal the volutions and give the structure the appearance of a 
small pile -of fragments of stones and shells. That this imitation 
of its surroundings is protective in its nature, there can be no 
doubt ; but in some of the species the protection is not apparent, 
the agglutinating process being restricted within narrow bounds, 
or sometimes not developed, and when exhibited is confined to 
a single row of small bivalves or stones on the suture or periph- 
ery, arranged with a degree of regularity as to size, and occur- 
rence indicating the existence of choice or artistic taste on the 
part of the mollusk. Of the shells attached, single valves of 
lamellibranchs are preferred, probably because they give more

surface for their weight than univalves, and as the back affords 
the best surface for attachment, the interior of these is turned 
up and free, thus making the whole mass particularly uninviting 
to any creature disposed to essay the destruction of the structure 
with a view to molluscous food. The near relatives of the 
Xenophoridae, the Vermetids, are as well protected by soldering 
their shells to the surface of large bodies, but other groups not 
very distant appear to have no dependence but on their shell. 

Genus XENOPHORA, Fischer de Waldheim, 1807. 

SliL-11 conical, trochiform, upper surface carrying shells, stones 
and madrepores, irregularly arranged, so as sometimes to almost 
completely disguise the surface; imperforate or narrowly rimate ; 
lower face of. peripheral cnrina striate and granular. 

Tropical Seas. 

P/iorws,Montfort, 1810, and F8eudopJwrus,'M.eek,&i'e synonyms. 

Section TUGUIUUM, Fischer, 1880. 

Shell umbilicated, only agglutinating in the neighborhood of 
the suture, margin of the last whorl prolonged, thin, blac^e-like, 
smooth below ;-Operculum trigonal or trapezoidal. 

Section ONUSTUS, II. and A. Adams, 1854. 

Shell conical, depressed, widely and profoundly umbilicated, 
periphery spinose at intervals, suture, towards the apex only, 
more or less ornamented with small stones or shells agglutinated 
to the surface. Tropical Seas. 

Humphrey first used the faulty generic name (being an adjec- 
tive), in 1797, but the justifiable exclusion of this author's genera 
does not prevent its use in connection with the recognizable 
definition of H. and A. Adams ; hence I see no absolute neces- 
sity for adopting instead Haliphaebus, Fischer, 1880. 

Subgenus ENDOPTYGMA, Gabb, 1877. 

Shell umbilicated, agglutinating, the basal margin having one 
or two internal spiral plications, which have left their imprint on 
the cast from which the group is described. - 

E. UMBILTCATUM, Tuomey. Cretaceous of Alabama. 



158 XENOPHORTD^E. 

Genus EUTROCHUS, Whitfield, 1682. 

Conical above, flat or concave beneath, broadly deeply umbili- 
cated ; aperture very oblique, periphery strongly carinated or 
expanded ; surface ornamentation unlike above and below. Dif- 
fers from the umbilicated forms of Trochidae in not forming a 
columella, and from Risella in being umbilicated. 

E. CONCAVA, Hall. Carboniferous, Illinois, Indiana. 

Genus AUTODETUS, Lindstrom, 1884. 

Shell small, widely conical, sinistral, attached by its truncated 
apex to foreign bodies, axis im perforate, suture not perceptible 
externally. A. calyptratus, Schrenek, Silurian of Gotland. An 
aberrant form placed in this family by Lindstrom. The apical 
fixation resembles that of certain Vermetidae, but the shell may 
be a tubiculate Annelid. Anticalyptraea, Quenstedt, 1884, is a 
synonym. 

Genus CLISOSPIRA, Billings, 1865. 

This curious form from the Silurian of Canada, which I have 
placed, with some doubt, in Trochiclse, is with equal doubt 
referred here by Fischer. It is trochiform, with reticulated 
surface ; there is some evidence that towards the apex it is 
spirally coiled, but the cavity occupied by the body of the 
a-nimal appears to be straight and central, with an aperture 
expanding trumpet-like all around. 



The XenophoricUe have been monographed by Reeve, in Con- 
chologia Jconica ; by Philippi, in Kuster's Conchylien Cabinet, 
and more recently by Dr. Fischer, in Kiener's Coquilles vivantes. 
They first appeared possibly in the Silurian, more probably in 
the Devonian, and have not been numerous at any period of the 
geological history.

FAMILY VERMETID^. 

Shell tubular, septate within, attached or free; sometimes 
regularly spiral when young, always becoming irregular in the 
adult growth ; aperture rounded, usually entire, sometimes fis- 
sured. Operculum corneous, annular, sometimes spiral, rarely 
absent. 

Animal vermiform, elongated, with short snout and distant 
short tentacles, bearing eyes at their outer bases ; foot small ; a 
single elongated branchia, no copulatory organ ; two corneous 
jaws; dentition (PL 30, fig. 9). 

These aberrant mollusks were separated by Cuvier in 1830, as 
an order under the name of Tubuli branch iata, corresponding 
with Tubispira, Desh., 1830, and Protopoda, Gray, 1837. A more 
extensive acquaintance with the modifications of the breathing 
organs in mollusks has tended to diminish the importance which 
Cuvier attached to them. 

These animals, generally attached upon shells, or coral, or 
living in sponges, often gregarious in large colonies, although 
without copulatory organs are unisexual, oviparous or viviparous. 
The egs are often attached to the tube itself. The embryos 
(PI. 48, fig. 6) are furnished with a spiral shell and the young are 
often perforating. 

Like most attached shells the Yermetids are exceedingly irreg- 
ular in growth, sculpture and coloring, often reproducing the 
surface upon which they are fixed. The species are therefore 
very difficult to identify satisfactorily, particularly as in many 
specinens the parts wherein reside the characteristic marks, the 
mouth , the operculum , etc., are wanting. The difficulty is enhanced 
by the great resemblance of some of the forms to annelids of the 
genus Serpula from which they may be distinguished by the 
spiral nuclear shell, and interior septa of the tube. The tube 
of Serpula is composed of two calcareous la}'ers, that of Ver- 
metidse of three. As to the lamellae occurring within the tube, 
on the columellar or parietal wall, they are often wanting, perhaps 

(163) 



164 VERMETID^E. 

absorbed away by the animal, like the teeth of Pupa, and although 
they are made subgeneric and sectional characters, they may be 
present or missing in the same species, and are consequently of 
inferior taxonomic importance. 

Prof. 0. A. L. Morch made a special study of the Vermetidse, 
and to his papers in the Journal de Conchyliologie, and particu- 
larly in the Zool. Proceedings, London, 18GO-18G2, we are in- 
debted for the only scientific arrangement of them. Unfortunately 
this author has endeavored to name and describe every slight 
variation, and has thus amassed a large collection of forms, 
varieties and species, subgenera and genera, the study of which 
is even more perplexing than that of the specimens themselves. 
His genera are here reduced to subgenera, his subgenera to sec- 
tions. Illustrations ma} 7 " be found in the folio volume of Chenu, 
in Reeve's " Iconica " and Sowerby's " Thesaurus," but these 
respective monographs are only partial in their scope, the two 
latter being confined to Siliquaria, and leave much to be desired 
on the score of completeness. 

Dr. Leon Yaillant (Researches on Lamarck^s species of the 
Tubispirata in Nouv. Arch, du Museum, vii, 1871), thus classifies 
the Vermetidse : 

A. Operculum wanting or rudimentary.

Synopsis of Genera. 

Genus VERMETUS, Adanson, 1757. 

Animal having two pedal filaments, much longer than and 
situated in front and below the cephalic tentacles. 

Shell tubular, free or fixed, sometimes regularly spiral when 
young, but becoming irregularly protracted or contorted when 
adult, with interior septa; aperture circular ; operculum usually 
present, corneous, annular, circular, exteriorly concave. 

Inhabits temperate and tropical seas. Fossil, secondary and 
tertiary. 

Subgenus VERMETUS (sensu stricto}. 

Shell spirally twisted, attached, surface often decussated, 
columella bearing one to three longitudinal lamellae. Operculum 
very small, concave, scarcely spiral. 

Section VERMETUS (tj'pical). 

Laminae on the parietal wall. 
Section PETALOCONCHUS, Lea, 1843. 

Shell with two internal ridges running spirally along the colu- 
mella, becoming obsolete towards the apex and aperture. Mostly 
fossil. 

V. SCULPTURATUS, Lea. Tertiary. IT. S. (S. and S. Conch., t. 67, 
f. 76). 

Section MACROPHRAGMA, Carp., 1857. 

Internal laminae towards the middle of the columella ; superior 
lamina sharp, an gu lately deflexed, externally bicarinate. t 

Operculum small, very thin, corneous, smooth, subplanate, 
scarcely spiral. 

Section ALETES, Carpenter, 1857. 

Whorls larger than in preceding section, columella with a ver\* 



Ififi VERMETID,E. 

faint median thread-like line ; color usually yellowish brown, the 
early whorls chestnut. 

Operculum concave externally, with 5-6 spiral laminae, the 
last abrupt ; interiorly convex, shining, with irregular spiral 
line; muscular area irregular, opaque. 

Subgenus BIVONTA, Gray, 1842. 

Shell affixed, mostly spiral, with spiral, interruptedly nodu- 
lose lirae and a median elevated line ; aperture contracted, 
circular, columella without ridges. Operculum small, rudimen- 
tary. 

When these shells are not perfect, without the aperture 
margin, they are difficult to distinguish from Spiroglyphus. 
Dofania, Morch, 1860 (in part), is a synon}^m. 

Subgenus SPIROGLYPHUS, Daudin, 1800. 

Animal excavating a groove on the surface of shells or stones, 
covering it over with shelly material, and thus, forming a 
tubular planorbiform case. Considered by some naturalists an 
annulose animal allied to Serpula, but of this there is no proof. 
When first hatched, the shell is spiral and regular, consisting of 
one and a half whorls ; it soon attaches itself, the channel it 
excavates being at first shallow, afterwards deeper ; color bright 
purple to nearly black. The operculum is large, thick, convex 
exteriorly, with, strong concentric laminre, plane interiorly, con- 
centrically lirate, with central mamilla, and narrowly elevated 
margin. 

Stoa, Serres, 1855, is in part a synonym. 

Subgenus THYLACODES, Guettard, 1774. 

Shell adherent, frequently solitary, tubular, irregularly twisted, 
with 3-5 longitudinal nodulous lirse, aperture rounded, colu- 
mella not plicate, but frequently partitioned internally perpen- 
dicularly to the axis. No operculum, or minute when present. 

Dofania, Morch, 1860 (in part), is a synonym; others are 
Serpulorbis, Sassi, 1827 (a name frequently used for the genus), 
Serpulus, Montf., 1810, and Serpuloides, Gray, 1850. The sub- 
genera Cldrtopoda, Gray, 1840, Tetr anemia, Morch, 1859, 



VERMETID.E. 167 

Hatina, Gray, 1847, and Lementina, Risso, 1826, are founded on 
differences of form in the mollusk, mostly as represented by 
published figures, and allowing that these are correct, their 
value is probably no more than specific. These characters will 
be referred to in the descriptions of the species. 

Subgenus SIPHONIUM (Brown, 1756), Morch, 1859. 

Shell adherent, irregularly twisted, carinated, without internal 
armature. Operculum large, smooth, circular, concave exter- 
nally, convex interiorly, the scar of attachment central, with 
rugose concentric striae, and plain margin. 

M. Rougemont has observed at Naples that S. maximum 
emits from its mouth a thin veil-like plaited substance, which 
entangles small natatory animals and is subsequently with- 
drawn (Bull. Soc. Neuch., xii, 94). 

Stoa, Serres, 1855 (in part), is a synonj^m, according to the 
text. 

Subgenus STEPHOPOMA, Morch, 1860. 

Adult shell adherent, spiral, solitaiy or clustered ; aperture 
slightly inflexed above, very obsoletely effused below, without 
internal lamellae. Operculum slightly concave, arctispiral, fur- 
nished with long divergent multifid setae. Recent and fossil. 

The shells are generally very small, and usually so tender as 
to be very rarely found fossil in a good state of preservation. 
Difficult to distinguish from Vermiculus. 

Subgenus BURTINELLA, Morch, 1861. 

Young shell adherent, the adult free, thick, widely conically 
elevated, trochiform or planorboid, usually sinistral, rarely dex- 
tral, last whorl protracted, more or less prolonged, tubular 
within, angular exteriorly, aperture circular, not contracted. 
Fossil only, 15 species. Oolitic, Cretaceous, Tertiary ; Europe, 
India. 

B. CONCAVA, Stol. (Struc. and Syst. Conch., t. 67, f. 69, 70). 

Subgenus TUBULOSTIUM, Stoliczka, 18G8. 

Shell planorboid to broadly conical, aperture contracted, pro- 
longed in a tube. 4 sp. Jurassic, Europe ; Cretaceous, India ; 
Tertiary, United States. 



lG8 VERMETID^E. 

Subgenus YERMICULARIA, Lam., 1799. 

Shell free, in its early stage regularly coiled like a Turritella ; 
subsequently uncoiled, the tube variously twisted or more or 
less straight and prolonged. Operculum size of the aperture. 
Carboniferous living. Tropical and subtropical. 

There is apparently no other distinction between the shells of 
Vermicularia and Burtinella, except that the latter are coiled 
in a broad, largely umbilicated cone ; Tubulostium has a con- 
tracted aperture. Often called Vermieidus, Lister. 

Genus SILIQUARIA, Brug., 1789. 

Animal with rudimentary pedal tentacles ; mantle slit along 
the branchial cavity. 

Shell tubular, at first spiral, afterwards protracted and irregu- 
lar ; tube with a longitudinal fissure, which is sometimes simple, 
sometimes formed by a series of perforations ; often both varieties 
exist in the same specimen ; aperture circular, without internal 
septa or lamella. Operculum corneous, subc3 r lindrical or 
conoidal, formed of a spirally rolled band, with ciliated margin; 
axis of the cone filled up internally by a series of spiral radiat- 
ing cells (PI. 48, figs. 9, 10). Mediterranean Sea, W. Africa, 
Tropical Pacific Ocean. 

Fossil, 20 sp. Tertiary, one species from the upper creta- 
ceous. The typical species, as well as several others, occur 
imbedded in sponges. 

Tenagodusj Gueltard, 1774, is the same, but the genus is much 
better known under its later name. 

Fischer proposes the following divisions, based on distinctions 
in the branchial slit. 



Section SILIQUARIA (sen*n 

Slit continuous, open. 
Section PYXIPOMA, Morch, 1860. 

Slit closed by a lamella, but not filled up outside, open near 
the mouth. 

Section AGATHIRSES, Moritfort, 1810. 

Slit composed of numerous isolated holes. 



VERMETUS. 169 

As all three kinds of slit may exist in different parts of a 
single specimen, the above classification has but little to recom- 
mend it ; and }^et in a rough wa} r the distinctions of the slit 
hold good. 

About a dozen species have been recognized by Morch, 
Sowerby and Reeve. The monographs of the Thesaurus Con- 
chyl. and Conchologia Icon, are essentially the same ; an earlier 
one is contained in Chenu's Illust. Conchyliologiques. 

The recent species are tropical and subtropical in distribution. 
They live on rocks and corals ; the restricted group Siliquaria 
inhabits sponges. 

Genus CRYPTOBIA, Desh., 1863. 

Proposed for a perforation in polyps, sometimes lined by a 
shelly plate, sometimes without it ; spire regular, of 5 or 6 
whorls, in the middle of the polyp ; the following whorls are 
unrolled ; on one of the walls is found a series of fissures, which 
traverse the polyp. C. Michilini } Desh., Isle of Bourbon. These 
perforations are filled by parasitic sipunculi, which may have 
destroyed in some cases the shell of the mollusk. 



Genus VERMETUS, Adanson, 1757. 
Subgenus YERMETUS (sensu stricto). 

Typical. 
V. ADANSONII, Daudin. PI. 49, figs. 20, 21 ; PL 48, fig. 12. 

Shell graceful of 5-12 whorls, loosely or more or less closely 
coiled, and terminating in a rather straight tube about an inch 
in length when adult, strongly striated by 6 to 12 raised longi- 
tudinal ridges or lines, sometimes chagreened ; dark brown, be- 
coming ash color in dead shells. Operculum very thin, with two 
small concentric grooves, about half the diameter of the aper- 
ture. 

Senegal. 
It is Vermetiis lumJbricalis, Roissy, not Linn. 

Yar. LAMARCKIT, Morch (fig. 21). 

Does not appear to possess any immutable distinctive charac- 
ter ; the tube is said to be thin towards the mouth, the attach- 



170 YERMETUS. 

ment is by the apex, the surface is sometimes transversely and 
not longitudinally sculptured. 

Yar. CARPENTERI, Morch. 

Is founded upon the presence and form of the interior lamellae 
as shown in section by the figure. Carpenter described it as 
Petaloconchus renisectus (fig. 12). 

Y. VARIANS, d'Orb. PI. 49, figs. 22, 23 ; PI. 48, fig. 1 1. 

Irregularly convoluted, longitudinally rugoscly costate or 
smooth, violaceous brown. 

Brazil to West Indies, W. coast of Florida. 

The varieties described by Morch need only to be named and 
figured here ; the} 7 are scarcely of sufficient importance to justify 
separate headings and descriptions. They are : 

Yar. CARPENTERI (fig. 11), West Indies ; var. OCCLUSA, Morch, 
West Indies; var. MONILE, Morch, Honduras; var. IRREGU- 
LARIS, d'Orb.; var. ELECTRINA, Morch; var. BADIA, Morch; 
var. CANDIDISSIMA, Morch; var. PERLATA, Morch ; and var. 
COSTATA, Morch ; all from the West Indies. As to var. 
IRREGULARIS, Mo'rch quotes the text of d'Orbigny's Cuba, 
but writes, " I am nearly sure that the group figured is a 
SpiroglyphuSj perhaps mixed with a Vermetus." 

Y. CONICUS, Dillw. PL 49, fig. 24. 

Flexuose, spiral at base, tube rather thick, brownish white, the 
spiral portion irregularly wound, about 8 whorls. 

West Indies. 

The sculpture varies as in the preceding species, it usually 
consists of longitudinal striae ; the tube is much larger than in 
V. varians, and also differs in its light color. It is V. lumbri- 
calis,fl. of Gmelin. Morch has vars. PERSONATA, GORPIALIS (decus- 
satus. Lam. non Gruel.), PROBOSCIS, RETIFERA. 

Y. RENISECTUS (Carp.), Morch. PL 49, figs. 25, 2G. 

Brownish ash-color, attached, spirally contorted, lightly longi- 
tudinally lirate, the interstices rather smooth, especially towards 
the aperture, incremental striae rugose, regular, somewhat gran- 
ulated in intersecting the longitudinal lira 1 . Interior with two

flattened laminae ; one on either side of the columella, and a dis- 
tinct line on the middle of the columella. 

Philippines. 

This is V. renisectus, Carp., in part. Morch describes vars. 

GORDIALIS, ASPERULA, ASPERELLA, WOODWARDII, Carp., EBENEA, 
PICEA, INDENTATA, MONILIFERA. 

Y. CONTORTUS, Carpenter. PI. 49, fig. 27. 

Laterally attached, chestnut-color, rather thin, irregularly con- 
torted, first whorls spiral, usually in contact, the last protracted, 
closely longitudinally lirate, decussated by incremental lines, the 
intersections very obsoletely nodulose ; interior without lamella, 
but with 3-5 spiral lime on the columella. 

Mazatlanand Gulf of California. 

Morch adds vars. REPENS, FAVOSA, CONTORTULA, INDENTATA and 

CORRODENS. 

V. NERINOIDES, Carp. PL 49, figs. 28, 29 ; PI. 48, fig. 13. 

Closely agglomerated, irregularly spirally twisted, orange- 
colored, almost eve^where superficially ashy; whorls separate, 
yet approximating, line somewhat compressed, very obsoletely 
nodosely contracted, interstices rather wide, with close incre- 
mental stria?; internal lamella (fig. lo) large, modifying the inte- 
rior as in a section of Nerinaea. 

Australia. 
Y. OCTOSECTUS, Carp. PI. 48. tig. 14. 

Solitary, laterally affixed, whitish, irregularly spirally twisted, 
longitudinal line rather remote, reticulated by closer, rugose 
incremental lines, with distant transverse orange lines ; interior 
laminae prominent, lateral, the exterior part of the chamber small 
in the first and large in the last whorl, columellar line acute. 

So. Africa ? Red Sea. 

" I have seen specimens with and without internal laminae 
attached on the same shell. One specimen shows on the outer 
wall a sharp keel pointing to the slit between the laminae, which 
I have never elsewhere seen so well developed. According to 
Carpenter, it differs from the following species in the absence of 
the * remarkable ' structure at the base, and in the comparatively 
small size of the outer chamber ; the former character is prob- 
ably quite accidental, and the latter is not constant in one and 



172 VERMETUS 1 . 

the same species. The variety (below) is still more like the V. 
cereus, which perhaps will itself prove to be merely a variety 
when more specimens have been compared." MORCH. 

Yar. DILATATA, Morch. Whorls a little flattened, suture 
depressed, dilated, the strong tran verse rugae approximating. 
This variety is from the Red Sea, to which locality the type also 
probably belongs. 

Y. CEREUS, Carp. PI. 48, fig. 15. 

Solitary, attached, orange-color, with depressed whitish 
sutures, the attached side with a series of nodules which, writes 
Morch, are the impressions of a coral. There is no sculpture, 
the specimen appearing as though it had been attacked by acid. 
It is a large species, the penultimate whorl having a diameter of 
6-7 mill., the aperture of 4-75 mill. Lateral interior lamellae 
about central. 

Philippines. 

Morch has Yars. GYMNOGASTRA and TENUIS. 

Y. CARINATUS. Quoy. PL 49, fig. 30. 

Widely irregularly coiled, carinated, somewhat triangular, 
transversely striated, yellowish ash-color, aperture rounded 
within. 

Isl. Guam. 

" I have seen forms which I regard as intermediate between 
V. octosectus. Carp., and V. cereus, Carp., approaching to this." 
MORCH. 

Y. LILACINUS, Morch. PL 49, fig. 31. 

Aggregated, subcylindrical, spirally twisted, purplish, whorls 
contiguous with dilated white suture, longitudinal lirae obsolete, 
remote, incremental rugae generally remote, stronger towards 
the aperture, last whorl slightly protracted; parietal laminae 
very short (broken?), approximating to the columella, median 
columellar lira somewhat acute.

Section PETALOCONCHUS, Lea, 1843. 

Y. SUBCANCELLATUS, Bivona. PI. 49, fig. 32. 

Solitary, or more rarely gregarious, reclining, almost entirely 
affixed, irregularly spiral, with the whorls in contact, brownish, 
surface eubcancellated by longitudinal and transverse striae, the

anterior extremity free. Operculum plain, thin. Animal dark 
P ur P le - Southern Europe. 

It is Ser/jida ylomerata, of Linn., 12th Eilit., but not of 10th 
Edit., and V. intortus, Weink. " I have examined five or six 
groups without finding- any internal laminae, as Sowerby and 
Moore appear to have done. In a comparatively few specimens 
I have found a distinct medial lira on the coluraella." MORCH. 
This author describes vars. OCCLUSA, SUTURALIS and SCOLO- 

PENDRINA. 

V. VERMICELLA, Lam. PI. 49, fig. 33. 

Yellowish, filiform, narrow, transversely rugose, fiexuous, 
without longitudinal sculpture, conglomerated into a dense mass. 

W. Africa. 

It is V. ylomeratux, Daudin, V. Lixpe, (Adanson), Deshayes. 
Morch describes a var. FILARIS. 

Y. ANELLUM, Morch. PI. 49, fig. 34. 

Shell sinistral, spirorbiform, white, spire affixed, umbilicus 
open, whorls few, with transverse close ribs. Diameter of shell 
about 2 to 3-5 mill. 

Todas Santos Bay, L. California (on Haliotis). 

Very like a Spirorbis in shape, and " perhaps will prove to be 
the type of a new genus." MORCH. 

Section MACROPHRAGMA, Carpenter, 1857. 
V. MAOROPHRAGMA, Carp. PI. 48, fig. 10. 

Shell small, chestnut-colored, laterally attached, often eroding, 
spirally twisted, first whorls flattened, contiguous, the last 
loosely contorted, with close longitudinal lirae and incremental 
striae ; interior armature (see figure). 

San Diego, Gal., L. CaL, Mazatlan, Eealejo. 

" V. contortus, Carp., is perhaps the adult stage of this species, 
which again possibly may be a form of Aletes centiquadrus." 
MORCH. 

V. COCHLIDIUM, Carpenter. PL 48, fig. 17. 

Distinguished from the preceding species by its internal 
laminae ; the shell is of a lighter color and larger growth. 

Australia ; var. from Tahiti. 



174 YERMETUS. 

Y. FLAVESCENS, Carp. PI. 48, fig. 18. 

" Shell externally closely allied to V. subcancellatus, from 
which it is principally known by the smaller size and stronger 
sculpture. Internally it most resembles V. cochlidium, from 
which it may be distinguished by the absence of keels on the 
upper lamina through a large part of the length ; and by the 
general absence of the third plait, which, when it appears, is 
like another fold of the lower lamina in the same direction." 
MORCH. 

Sicily. 
Section ALETES, Carpenter, 1851. 

" The operculum seems to me only different from that of 
Vermetus in size, in consequence of the larger calibre of the 
shell. The variety of Vermetus conic us, Dillw., would be 
referable to this group, if I had not seen one and the same 
specimen successively in the different whorls change from 
Vermetus (Petaloconchus) to Thylacodes, and ultimately to 
Aletes." MORCH. Yet Mo'rch himself admits these subdivisions 
and the distinction of species by small differences in the 
internal shell. 

Y. CENTIQUADRUS, Valenc. PI. 49, fig. 35; PL 50, figs. 36-40. 

Laterally attached, spirally twisted, earlier whorls rather 
narrow, rapidly increasing, the last wide, spread out and com- 
pressed at the margin ; light yellowish brown, with obscure 
narrow lines, earlier whorls dark brown, the interstices of the 
lirae impressed punctate. 

Panama to Gulf of California. 

" The first whorls are of a dark brown color and strongly 
sculptured with longitudinal linie and transverse rugae exceed- 
ingty like V. contortus, Carp., which I suppose to be only a form 
of this shell, judging from analogy with V. conic us, Dillw. The 
columella shows one exceedingly feeble median lira, scarcely to 
be seen except in a very favorable light, and two very conspicu- 
ous lateral lirae which seem to answer to the laminae in V. 
macrophragma, but they must perhaps be more properly re- 
garded as the margins of a thin layer covering all the interior 
of the whorls, except the larger median part of the columella, 
which shows a slight difference in color." Animal violaceous,

gins of the foot. MORCH. 

It is V. effusus, Val. (fig. 36), V. angulatus, Rouss. (fig. 37).

interstices impressed punctate. Diam. apert. 5'5 mill. 
Puntarenas. 

Yar. TULTPA, Rouss. (fig. 40). Laterally attached, irregularly 
spirally twisted ; whorls oblique, smooth or very obsoletely 
sculptured on the later whorls, variegated violaceous and

Yar. BRIEGESII, Morch (unfigured). Very like the last, but the 
color is mostly obliterated and the last whorl is partly free 
and erect. 

V. Rouss^i, Vaillant. PL 51, fig. 43. 

Earlier whorls spirally twisted, afterwards lengthened, undu- 
lated, longitudinally lirate, line fading towards the aperture, 
cancellate towards the base, which is flattened. 

Timor. 

The figures of Chenu's Illust. Conch, represent two species. 
One of these is selected by Morch as best answering the original 
description of F. sipho, Lam., and I have copied it; the other 
appears to be a F. polyphragma, Sassi. Vaillant, from an exam- 
ination of specimens in the Paris Museum, thinks that neither of 
these figures represents the type, and he therefore describes the 
sipho of Rousseau and Morch, as F. Boussaei, Vaillant. I may 
add that none of the figures cited by Lamarck himself agree 
with his description.

Mediterranean Sea. 
V. contortuplicatuti, Var., A. Scacchi, is a synonym. 

Var. PINNICOLA, Morch. Irregularly spiral, with three crenulated 
longitudinal lines. It is V. granulatus, Graven., not Fabr., 
and perhaps V. rupestris, Risso.

SQUAMOSA, STRIGATA,PAPILLOSA, CORALLIOPHILA, TRIQUETRA, GRAN- 
IFERA, FULGURATA, PUNCTATA, VARTEGATA, FLOS-LACTIS. According 

to Vaillant Lamarck's V. eruca, from examination of the speci- 
men, is the same and should have priority.

Conglomerated, tubes cylindrical or subangulated, contorted, 
transversely undulately rugose. Mediterranean Sea. 

Morch has vars. CRUSTANS and TUBULOSA = ANNULATA, Lam. 
(fig. 58). 

V. cristatus, Biondi, is the young of this species. Yaillant 
remarks that Daudin's species is smaller than V. annulatus, Lam., 
and corrodes the surface upon which it is attached ; as Daudin has 
priority he proposes for the Lamarckian species V. annularium. 

Monterosato has substituted the name petrzea, because of Ser- 
pula glomerata, Linn.; he adds a var. minor. 

Embryonal whorls smooth, projecting in the centre of the shell, 
and not unlike a very small Amnicola. Has more regular whorls 
and wants the tooth-like process of the carina in the aperture of 
V. annulatus.

186 VERMETUS. 

Subgenus VERMICULARIA, Lam., 1799. 

The animal is thus described by Stimpson : 

" Mantle fringed at its margin with short filaments ; foot very 
short and broad, dilated into rounded auricles anteriorly ; muz- 
zle broad, not cleft; tentacula short, conical, with eyes at their 
exterior base ; an elevated ridge runs along the back, becomes 
flattened into a membrane at the head, and passes round under 
the right tentacle, forming a kind of canal, near which is the 
anus; its color is light brown, with patches and spots of black. 
Viviparous. The young shell is helicoid and reversed. Oper- 
culum corneous, black and hard on the inner, and lamellated on 
the outer surface ; it is surrounded by a thin, membranous, 
flexible portion, about one-fourth its diameter ; thus it is enabled 
to close its shell perfectly at the aperture, and yet to retreat far 
into the narrower whorls." 

V. TORTUOSUS, Solander. PI. 55, fig. 97 ; PI. 56, fig. 1. 

Loosely twisted, whorls flattened or slightly concave on the 
exterior, smooth, rectangular above and below, margined by a 
rib, spire short, conical. 

Philippines. 

V. costalis, Rouss., is a synonym. It is doubtful whether this 
species is distinct from V. lumbricalis ; yet Morch has described 
vars. unicostalis (fig. 97) and nidificans. 

V. LUMBRICALIS, Linn. PI. 55, fig. 98. 

Yellowish chestnut color ; whorls rounded with or without one 
or two exterior carinse, sometimes with two slight inferior carinse, 
smooth or longitudinally stria?. 

Philippines, East Indies. 

This is the well-known type of the family Yermetida 1 . It is 
very doubtful whether it should be restricted to oriental speci- 
mens, as no permanent differential characters appear to charac- 
terize the forms from other localities which have received distinct 
names, as for instance, that of the Atlantic coast of the United 
States and West Indies. Morch has described vars. DIAPHANA, 
CORNEA, AMPLIATA, RUGULOSA and TERES (= Indicus, Rouss. in 
part).

S. TOSTUS, Morch. PL 57, fig. 18. 

Small, rust color, darker brown at the apex ; tube narrow, 
rather smooth, spire suborbicular ; fissure articulated, bordered 
by a dentate line on either side. 

Ceylon. 

Differs (insufficiently) from the next species in the elliptical, 
distant pores, the slit being bordered by a narrow elevated 
undulated line on both sides ; so that except in the last whorl, 
the slit seems situated on the top of a feeble carina. 

S. CUMINGIT, Morch. PL 57, fig. 19 ; PL 58, fig. 21. 

Whorls 5, the first scalariform, angulated behind, the angle 
evanescent in the last whorl, granularly lirate below, line distant, 
the interstices with intervening lirulae, externally transversely 
lightly fissured, the fissures evanescent in last whorl, umbilical 
region longitudinally undulately striate, decussated by sigmoid, 
distant radiating sulci ; slit at first closed, afterwards with open 
round holes, which finally coalesce into a denticulated open slit.

Shell rather thick, broadly irregularly twisted, distantly 
spirally ridged, ridges sharply squamose or spined ; tube gener- 
ally very slowly increasing ; spiral fissure very narrow, partly 
consisting of oblong perforations, partly continuous and dentate 
by the coalescence of these ; white, yellowish or purplish, some- 
times two colors on the same specimen.

slit is simple and open, although otherwise the features are those 
of anguina. This is not an error in the representation of the

FAMILY TURRITELLID^E. 

Animal with a short broad rostrum ; long, subulate, diverging 
tentacles, the eyes slightly prominent at their external base ; 
mantle margin fringed, slightly plicate or channeled in front and 
on the right side ; branchial plume single, very long ; foot very 
short, truncate in front, attenuated and obtuse behind, grooved 
beneath, operculigerous lobe simple. 

The lingual dentition varies in the number of margined teeth ; 
thus for T. acicula, the marginals are suppressed, and the for- 
mula is 0-1-1-1-0 (PI. 59, fig. 30); for T. ungulina, 2-1-1-1-2, 
(PI. 30, fig. 11), and for T. triplicata 3-1-1-1-3 (PI. 59, fig. 29). 
T. lactea, representing the group Mesalia, has the marginal teeth 
with smooth edges, formula 2-1-1-1-2 (PL 30, fig. 12). 

Shell spiral, not umbilicated, spire very long, of numerous 
whorls, with revolving striae or carinations, and curved growth- 
stride ; mouth obliquely oval or subquadrangular, usually entire, 
lip not thickened. Operculum multispiral. 

The genus Eglisia, Gray, 1840, included by man y conchologists 
in this family, belongs apparently to the Scalariidse. Yon 
Maltzan has recently described a genus Smithia, 1883, which is 
said to have a multispiral operculum, and is placed by him in 
Turritellidse, yet in the scalariform whorls, depressed superior 
portion, etc., it appears to be simply an exaggeration of the char- 
acters of Eglisia ; and it is connected with that group by Fischer. 

The Turritellidse have been monographed by : 

Kiener. Coquilles vivantes. 34 species. 

Reeve. Conchologia Iconica. 68 species. 1849. 

Boury has monographed the genus Mathilda, in Journal de 
Conchyliologie, 1883. 

Synopsis of Genera. 
Genus TURRITELLA, Lam., 1799. 

Shell pyramidal, the numerous whorls spirally striated or 
ridged, crossed by arcuated growth-lines, spire very long, aper- 
ture oval or subquadrangular, entire, lip thin. Operculum with 
fimbriated margin. 

(192) 




TURRITELLlD.il. 

About a hundred species are known, inhabiting all seas, but 
principally tropical and subtropical. The fossils number about 
four hundred species ; the genus commenced in the trias. 

The genus Proto, Defrance, 1824, is probably founded on a 
young Turritella : Proto of authors (Protoma, Baird) is different. 

Section I. TURRITELLA (restricted). 

Whorls rounded, spirally striate, unicolored, aperture rounded. 
Section II. HAUSTATOR, Montfort, 1810. 

Whorls flattened, mouth subquadrangular, outer lip sinuous ; 
usually undulatingly strigate with chestnut-color. 

Section III. TORCULA, Gray, 1847. 

Shell turriculated, usually white or' horn-c jlored with faint 
strigations of chestnut-color ; whorls subangular, with a median 
excavation ; aperture subquadrangular, the outer lip with a slight 
median sinus. 

Section IV. ZARIA, Gray, 184?. 

Shell turriculated, without color markings ; whorls carinated ; 
aperture subquadrangular, outer lip simple. 

Section Y. TURRITELLOPSIS, Sars, 1878. 

Shell like Tnrritella, the whorls of the spire grooved across ; 
aperture oval. The radula is without marginal teeth. Inhabits 
boreal seas. Tachyrhynchus, Morch., 1868, separated from 
Mesalia by a slight difference in the operculum, is a Synonym. 
I do not adopt it instead of Turritellopsis because the real dif- 
ferences of radula, size and habitat are not mentioned. 

Subgenus MESALIA, Gray, 1842. 

Shell turritelliform, the last whorl rounded; aperture oval, 
slightly produced in front into a rudimentary channel, lip sharp, 
arcuated, slightly sinuous behind, columella flattened, a little 
twisted at the base. Operculum with fewer whorls than in Tur- 
ritella, the nucleus central. Lateral and marginal teeth of the 
radula with smooth edges. 

West Africa ; fossil in the Eocene.

194 Tt'RlUTELLTthE. 



Subgenus ARCOTIA, Stoliczka, 1868. 

Turreted, elongated, spirally striate, the incremental lines 
straight, not curved ; columella excavated, aperture angulately 
rounded, subeffuse anteriorly. 

Jurassic and Cretaceous of India. T. INDICA, Stol. (S. and S. 
Conch., t. 67, f. 64). 

Subgenus LITHOTROCHUS, Conrad. 

Shell having the appearance of an elongated Trochus ; spire 
obtuse, the whorls numerous, transversely grooved, last whorl 
carinated, smaller than the spire ; there is a thickened sutural 
band, with very numerous growth-striae ; aperture subtetragonal, 
entire. 

Lias of Chili. T. HUMBOLDTII, Buch (S. and S. Conch, t. 07, 
f. 66). 

Genus PROTOMA 5 .Baird, 1870. 

Shell turreted, with flattened whorls, aperture oval, narrowly 
channeled and excised in front, with a basal swelling and a 
fasciole around the excision, lip sinuous behind. Operculum 
circular, corneous, multispiral. 

A single recent species is known, from West Africa. 

This is the genus Proto, of authors, not Defrance, represented 
in the Miocene of Europe. 

? Genus GLAUCONIA, Geibel, 1852. 

Shell turriculated, conical, sometimes pupiform, the whorls 
less numerous than in Turritella, and crossed by costulations ; 
outer lip notched or sinuated by an impressed furrow which 
winds round the last whorl ; aperture rounded, continuous ; colu- 
mella usually distinctly umbilicated. There are about 30 creta- 
ceous species, Europe, India and America. Omphalia, Zekeli, 
1852 (not Omphalius, Phil.), and Cassiope, Coquand, 1866, are 
synonyms. 

Usually considered a member of this family, but is remarkably 
allied to Melanatria. 



TURRITELLA. 195 

Genus MATHILDA, Semper, 1865. 

Shell turriculated, rather solid, apex heterostrophe, abruptly 
turned from left to right ; whorls in the typical species trans- 
versely cingulated and reticulated, longitudinally striated ; aper- 
ture entire, subrotund, base sometimes subeffuse ; lip acute, 
columella smooth. Operculum corneous, rather solid, multi- 
spiral, the external face concave, nucleus central. 

Animal with very long thread-like, divergent tentacles, with 
rather large eyes on prominences upon their exterior side, about 
a quarter of their length from the base ; foot large, cut out in 
front, obtuse behind ; operculigerous lobe having a row of cilia 
in constant movement. 

Seas of Europe, China, Australia, Strait of Magellan. 

There are about thirty tertiary and a few secondary species. 

" Mathilda," writes Dr. Fischer, " has the shell of Turritella, 
with the heterostrophe embryonic whorls of Pyramidella ; the 
exterior form of the animal, the position of the eyes, and the 
structure of the operculum, relate it to the former." On the 
other hand, Monterosato finds in it affinities with Solarium, and 
Jeffreys places it in the Pyramidellidse. The radula is unfortu- 
nately unknown. 

Subgenus GEGANIA, Jeffreys, 1884. 

Shell small, conic, reticulated, imperforate, the nucleus glob- 
ular and twisted, not spiral and not sinistral. G. PINGUIS, Jeffr. 

Coast of Portugal (abyssal). 

Differs from Mathilda in its short spire and non- heterostrophe 
apex. 

Genus TURRITELLA, Lam., 1799. 

Section TURRITELLA (typical). 
T. TEREBRA, Linn. PL 59, figs. 32, 33. 

Whorls convex, each with about 6 revolving ridges and inter- 
mediate close strise, suture deep ; yellowish brown to chestnut- 
color. Length, 5-8 inches. 

Singapore, Java, Philippines. 

T.*Archimedis, Dillwyn, is a synonym, and T. spectrum, Reeve 
(tig. 33), is at most a variety, developing more numerous ridges. 



196 . TURRITELLA. 

T. BACILLUM, Kiener. PL 59, figs. 34, 35 ; PL 60, fig. 42. 

Whorls somewhat flattened in the middle, but with deep 
suture, with about 6 revolving ridges and fine intermediate 
striae ; light yellowish ash to chestnut-color, the ridges on the 
larger whorls often marked by darker lines. Length, 4-5 inches. 

Ceylon, China. 

This is possibly only a variety of T. terebra, the essential differ- 
ence being that its whorls are somewhat flattened in the middle. 

T. cerea, Reeve (fig. 35) is a synonym. In the darker colored 
specimens, called T. crocea, by Kiener (fig. 42), there is often a 
more or less defined lighter colored sutural band. 

T. UNGULTNA, Linn. PL 60, fig. 43. 

Whorls about fifteen, convex, rather smooth, with about ten 
low ridge-like striae, the interstices superficially striulate ; chest- 
nut-color, becoming dark chocolate towards the aperture. . 

Length, 3 inches. 

T.fuscata, Lam., is a synonym. West Africa. 

T. NIVEA, Gray. PL 60, fig. 44. 

Whorls about 20, convex, a little slopingly flattened around 
the upper part, encircled by seven to ten low ridges and inter- 
mediate striae. Length, 3*5 inches. 

East Coast of Africa. 

I have some doubt about the correctness of the locality 
assigned for this species, and think it very probable that it will 
prove to be a colorless variety of T. ungulina. In one of the 
specimens before me the spire is chestnut-tinted. 

T. COMMUNIS, Risso. PL 60, figs. 45, 46. 

Whorls about 15, convex or somewhat flattened, the last some- 
times with an obtuse angle below, with spiral slight ridges and 
intermediate striae, often several of the ridges stronger ; yellow- 
ish brown to rusty chestnut color, often variegated in irregular 
longitudinal stripes, interior of aperture usually purplish tinged. 

Length, 2 inches. 

Europe, 

The nomenclature of this species is somewhat involved. . It is 



Tl RRITELLA. 19t 

T. terebra of Linn. Faun. Suec., but not of the Systema, and 
some conchologists prefer this name ; it is more frequently known, 
however, as T. cornea, Lam., although its identification is not 
beyond question. Other synonyms are T. ungulina, Loven, etc. 
(not Linn.),!r. Linnsei, Deshayes, and T. imbricosoluta, Gregorio, 
the latter described as a variety. 

T. CAPENSIS, Krauss. PI. 60, fig. 41. 

Whorls about 15, rounded, brownish, white-clouded, with 
irregular obtuse revolving lines and deep suture, base a little 
angulated, aperture light brownish. Length, 28 mill. 

Cape of Good Hope. 
T. TRIPLICATA, Stucler. PL 60, figs. 48-50. 

Whorls 15, with deep suture, spirally striated, three-ribbed, 
ribs flattened, the middle one the largest, the upper one smallest, 
duplicate, and sometimes obsolete towards the apex ; whitish, 
variegated and flamed with chestnut, sometimes all chestnut. 
Length, 1-1*5 inches. 

Mediterranean Sea ; West Africa ; 

Canary Is., Coast of Spain. 
Includes T. incrassata, Sowb., T. tricarinata, Brocchi. 

Yar. TURBONA, Monts. Fig. 50. 

Shell larger, bicarinate. Near Civita Vecchia. 

T. FASCTALIS, Menke. PI. 59, figs. 36, 3T. 

Very slender ; whorls about 18, convex, four-ridged, suture 
deeply impressed ; yellowish, chestnut banded at the suture. 

Length, 1 inch. 

Japan, China Sea. 

Menke described his species without locality ; the shell which 
Reeve has figured for it is said, on the authority of Cuming, to 
have been dredged in " Bay of Montija, Central America (in 
coarse sand at the depth of seven fathoms)." That this habitat 
is an error can scarcely be doubted ; not only has the locality 
failed to yield additional specimens, but Mr. A. Adams has 
recognized in the figure a Japanese species of which the unfigured 
7\ gracillima, Gould, of Japan, likewise, is a synonym. My 
type .specimens of the latter confirm this. T. tricolor, Ad. and 
Reeve (fig. 37), is another synonym. 



198 TURRITELLA. 

T. CINQULIFERA, Sowb. PI. 59, figs. 38-41. 

Slender, with about twelve whorls, contracted beneath the 
cleep suture, then rounded, with a number of thin, elevated 
spiral striae; whitish to yellowish brown, chestnut banded next 
the suture, sometimes with undulating transverse chestnut lines 
or a central chestnut band made up of two or three close parallel 
lines on the last whorl. Length, *75 inch. 

Australia. 

The t} r pe is lighter colored than usual ; T. fragilis, Kiener 
(fig. 39), better represents the ordinary appearance of the species, 
whilst T. fusco-cincta Petit (fig. 40) is a variety with different 
development of the ridging, and T. parva, Angas (fig. 41), is a 
juvenile. 

Section HAUSTATOR, Montfort, 1810. 

T. GONIOSTOMA, Yal. PI. 60, figs. 51, 52 ; PI. 61, figs. 53-57. 

Whorls 18 to 20, flattened in the middle, with fine spiral stride, 
and sometimes a few more prominent ridges ; when the latter 
are present they usually define the flattened area above and 
below, with occasionally some intermediate ridges upon the 
area, and a number of stronger ridges on the base of the body- 
whorl ; ridges sometimes irregularly nodulous ; first whorls of 
the spire unicarinate in the middle; whitish, thickly marbled, 
speckled and irregularly strigate with chestnut or chocolate- 
color. Length, 4-6 inches. 

Payta, Peru to Mazatlan. 

The synonyms include T. Broderipiana, d'Orb. (fig. 53), and 
T. Californica, Brocl. (teste d'Orb.) ; T. marmorata, Kiener (fig. 
54) ; T. lentiginosa, Reeve (fig. 55) ; T. punctata. Kiener (fig. 
56), and T. Banksii, Reeve (fig. 57), a juvenile. This list com- 
prises shells nearly smooth, and those with strong revolving 
ridges, also both slim and stout specimens, and shows a varia- 
bility which, if common to other species of the genus, would 
largely reduce their number. The specimens before me fully 
suffice to make out the synonymy as I have given it. 

T. VARIEGATA, Linn. PI. 61, fig. 58 : PI. 02, figs, 03, 04. 

Whorls 15 or 10, the first few carinatcd in the middle, the rest, 
flattened, swollen .-ibove the suture, with four or five distant 



TURBITELLA. 199 

obsoletely granulated ridges, and intermediate fine striae ; whitish, 
boldly longitudinally clouded and strigated with chocolate-color. 

Length, 2'5-4 inches. 

West Indies. 

The difference between this and the preceding species is mainly 
locality, yet the clouded painting is usually of a bolder pattern. 
The T. goniostoma and all its varieties might be united with this 
without injury to science. 

This is T. lerebra, Donovan; T. marmorata, Chemn., perhaps 
T. meta, Reeve (fig. 63), and T. imbricata, Linn., figured by 
Reeve as var. elongata (fig. 64). 

T. TIGRINA, Kiener. PI. 62, figs. 65, 66. 

Whorls 18-20, rather narrow, flatly sloping, swollen below and 
obtusely angulated, encircled by eight to ten riblets and inter- 
vening close striae, suture deep; whitish, longitudinally irregu- 
larly strigate with dark chestnut or chocolate-color. 

Length, 3-4'5 inches. 

Panama to Mazatlan. 

The more scalariform whorls and more definite obliquely 
longitudinal painting distinguish this from the preceding species ; 
the upper whorls, also, have no central carina. T. Cumingii, 
Reeve (fig. 66), is a synonym. 

T. ROSEA, Quoy. PL 62, figs. 67, 68 ; PI. 61, fig. 59. 

Whorls about 15, flat, the last sharply angled around the 
base, the angle defined by a rib, above which is another rib ; 
encircled by rather close, raised striae, finer on the base ; yel- 
lowish, marbled with chestnut, the raised striae usually darker 
chestnut. Length, 2-2'5 inches. New Zealand. 

T. lineolata, Kiener (fig. 68), is described from a light colored 
or faded specimen. The coloring of none of the specimens 
before me justifies Quoy's specific name. I think that T. Han- 
leyana, Reeve (fig. 59), will prove to be a young specimen of 
this species. 

T. SANGUINEA, Reeve. PL 62, fig. (;i. 

Whorls 18-20, slopingly convex to an angle above the deep 
suture, spindly grooved, with wider, flat-topped ridges; whitish 
variegated on the ridges with transverse oblong chestnut-colored 
markings. Length, 2-3 inches. Gulf of California. 



200 TURRIT ELLA. 

T DECLIVIS, Ad. and Reeve. PL 62, fig. 70. 

Whorls about 18, flatly slanting to an angle above the suture, 
nearly smooth, very finely unclulately striated, plicate in the 
middle, towards the apex ; yellowish white, stained with livid 
brown, the earlier whorls spotted with brown in a row beneath 
the suture. Length, 2 inches. 

China Sea. 
T. SINUATA, Reeve. PL 61, fig. 60. 

Whorls 14, flattened, finely spirally ridged and striated, lip 
deeply sinuous ; light fulvous, with a red-dotted white zone 
beneath the suture. Length, -65 inch. 

Hob. unknown. 
T. CINGULATA, Sowb. PL 62, fig. 71. 

Whorls about 17, convexly flattened, spirally strongly three- 
ribbed, often with alternate smaller riblets, ribs usually gran- 
osely crenulated, suture deep ; whitish, the ribs very dark 
chocolate or nearly black, aperture numerously chocolate banded. 

T. tricarinata, King, is a synonym. Chili. 

T. COLUMNARIS, Kiener. PL 63, fig. 76. 

Whorls about 30, narrow, the earlier ones showing two 
approximate keels in the middle, the rest rather flattened and 
about ten-ridged, the ridges obsoletely granulated, with inter- 
mediate fine striae, suture excavated ; yellowish white, with light 
chestnut-colored waved longitudinal streaks. Length, 4 inches. 

Ceylon. 
T.' LEUCOSTOMA, Yal. PL 62, fig. 72. 

Whorls about 20, very narrow, contracted around the exca- 
vated suture, flattened, spirally about 6-ridged, the ridges narrow, 
rather distant, granose, the interstices very finely striated ; 
whitish, faintly longitudinally clouded with light chestnut, ridges 
chestnut-spotted. Length, 3 inches. 

West Coast of Central America. 

T. COOPERI, Carp. PL 61, fig. 61. 

Whorls about 17, slopingly flattened, excavated at the suture, 
two-ridged and finely striated spirally, the last whorl doubly 
ridged below, with a single ridge above ; yellowish, longitu- 
dinally flamed with chestnut or chocolate. Length, T75 inches. 

tionlhern California. 



TURRITEI-LA. 201 

T. RUBESCENS, Reeve. PI. 61, fig. 02. 

Acuminately turreted ; whorls 13, spirally closely ridged and 
striated, the first few whorls keeled in the middle, keel quickly 
vanishing; light reel. Length, -05 inch. 

Bay of Monti j a, West Columbia. 

All the whorls are somewhat prominent in the middle, occupied 
by the keel in the first few whorls. 

The above is Reeve's description of a young shell which does 
not appear to possess any special characteristics ; it will possibly 
prove identical with one of the larger species from the same 
region. 

T. FLAMMULATA, Kieiier. PL 62, fig. 73. 

Whorls 18, the earlier ones two-ridged,, the rest convex, seven- 
ribbed, the middle ribs broader; fulvous white, stained with rose, 
dotted and clouded with chestnut, base rose color. 

Length, 2 75 inches. 

West Africa. 
T. TORULOSA, Kiener. PL 02, fig. 74. 

Whorls 15, flatly convex, the earlier ones two-ridged, after- 
wards becoming four-ridged, ridges obsoletely granulated, two 
lower ones always the most prominent, interstices closely spirally 
striate ; light yellowish white dotted and longitudinally flamed 
with light chestnut. Length, 3 inches. 

? Red Sea. 
Is possibly a mere variety of the following species. 

T. TRISULCATA, Lain. PL 03, fig. 75. 

Whorls about 18, conspicuously three-ribbed, the intermediate 
grooves hollowed, striated ; whitish, violaceous towards the apex, 
sparsely longitudinally flamed with chestnut. 

Length, 2'5 inches.

Differs from the preceding species in the keels of the earlier 
whorls being comparatively obsolete, the base of the shell more 
concave, and marked by numerous colored linear striae, which

The longitudinal septse are frequently wanting. It is T. tor- 
cularis, Born, and T. obsoleta, Gmel. I regard T. cochlea, Reeve 
(fig. 100), as a specimen accidentally less closely coiled than 
usual, so that the paired lower ribs are exhibited on several of the 
whorls. T. excavata, Sowb. (fig. 1), said to come from Agulhas 
Bank, So. Africa, is also a synonym.

Section ZARIA, Gray, 1847. 
T. DUPLTCATA, Linn. PL 65, figs. 20-22. 

Whorls about 16, stout, ponderous, the first few with several 
subequal keels, afterwards first one keel and then a pair of them 
are developed more strongly, whilst the others become faint or 
obsolete, everywhere closely spiral^ striate ; fulvous cream color, 
becoming light chestnut towards the apex. Length, 5-6 inches. 

Indian Ocean. 

T. replicata and T. acutangula, Linn. (fig. 21), are synonyms. 
In the latter the second prominent keel is not developed. 

Var. ATTENUATA, Reeve. Fig 22. 

Reeve attempts to distinguish this from T. acutangula by the 
want of the single prominent keel, but the variations between 
these forms are infinite, so that attenuata can barely stand as a 
variety. T. acutangula, Desh., not Linn., is a variety. 

T. FERRUGINEA, Reeve. PI. 64, fig. 11. 

Whorls 16, convex, finely spirally ridged, first whorls two- 
keeled, keels gradually fading, the lower whorls becoming

T. costulata, Mighels and Adams (fig. 24), M. lactea, Moller 
(fig. 25), T. lacteola, Carp., and T. erosa, var. costata, Aurivil- 
lius (fig. 26), are synonyms. The latter author appears to con- 
sider the present species identical with T. erosa: as Arctic 
shells are very variable, this may be the case ; yet I can readily 
distinguish the two species among the numerous specimens 
before me.

FAMILY 

Shell tubular, with a spiral plane nucleus which is caducous 
or persistent, then becoming cylindrical, curved, terminating in 
a simple, circular aperture, the posterior portion of the tube 
usually divided by one or more septa (PI. 66, figs. 47-51). 
Operculum horny, multispiral, margin sometimes fimbriated. 
There are usually three stages of growth in the shell of Caecum : 
first, the spiral or nuclear, soon lost by truncation, the end of 
the remaining tube closed by a septum; second, the adolescent 
stage, a curved tube, also lost subsequently ; and, third, the 
adult tube, of similar curved shape, and again closed behind by 
a septum (PI. 66, fig. 39). In Strebloceras the three stages of 
growth are persistent and the septa consequently absent. 

Animal with a long flat rostrum ; tentacles cylindrical, with 
sessile eyes at their outer base ; mantle thick, fleshy, circular, 
closely embracing the neck ; a single branchial plume ; foot 
short, narrow, truncated in front, attenuated and obtuse behind. 
Dentition 2-1-2 ? 

These minute mollusks have some points of resemblance with 
the Yermetidse, but are always free and the foot is without the 
anterior tentacular projections which distinguish that family. 
The animal is not at all shy, and crawls with considerable vivacity. 

The Csecidae, on account of their minuteness, have been neg- 
lected by collectors and students. No complete illustrated 
monograph of the family exists. P. P. Carpenter was the first 
naturalist to study them, and we are indebted to him for some 
of the subdivisions of the family at present recognized, as well 
as for others which must be relegated to the synonymy. Unfor- 
tunately the obvious distinctions of sculpture, often so charac- 
teristic of species and higher groups, have not the systematic 
importance here which Carpenter supposed them to have ; the 
Marquis de Folin, the latest monographer of the group, having 
shown that the same species will sometimes vary from a smooth 
to a ribbed surface. For this reason, and also because most of 
the species have not been figured, our knowledge of them 

(212) 



213 

remains very incomplete and unsatisfactory. About two hun- 
dred nominal species have been described, and they appear to 
inhabit temperate and warm seas, throughout the world, but are 
absent in cold waters. Some tertiary species have been 
discovered. 

Two of the principal works in which the Marquis de Folin 
has described new species, namely, " Les Fonds de la Mer," and 
"Annales Soc. Linn. Maine et Loire," xi, are unfortunately inac- 
cessible to me. The former publication is particularly import- 
ant for its illustrations. The Librarian of the Philadelphia 
Academy has made several unsuccessful attempts to secure this 
work through the Academy's agents in Europe, and I am reluc- 
tantly compelled to do without it ; my monograph is therefore 
necessarily very imperfect. On the other hand, I ain able to 
give illustrations of a number of species of Carpenter and C. B. 
Adams hitherto unfigured. 

Genus CAECUM, Fleming, 1817. 

This is the only genus ; the diagnosis consequently corres- 
ponds with that of the family. Odontina, Zborzewsky, 1834 ; 
Odontidium, Phil., 1836; Cornuoides, Brown, 1827; Brochus, 
Brown, 1829; Csecalium, Macgillivray ; Gorniculina, Minister ; 
Dentaliopsis, Clarke; Brochina, Gray, 1857, are synonyms. 

Costa has described the spiral portion only of the tube of a 
Caecum, probably Caecum trachea, under the name of Spiro- 
lidium Mediterranean ; but he included a second species in his 
genus, which appears to be a Parastrophia. 

The septum of the various species has a prominence upon the 
external face, which is directed backwards and presents consid- 
erable variation in form. 

Subgenus C^)CUM, sensu stricto. 

Shell commencing with two or three whorls, planorboid (PL 
66, figs. 41, 42), which are subsequently lost by truncation, and 
the posterior extremity of the adult curved tube closed by a 
diaphragm. 

Broclnna, Gray, was founded on a single specimen, insuffi- 
cientl} 7 characterized by its convex operculum. 






214 

Carpenter established the sections ElepTi antulum , Anellnm 
and Fartulum, but De Folin rejects these, because they are not 
in harmony with all the forms included in them and are insuffi- 
cient to meet the present demands of science ; he proposes 
instead : 

Section I. LEVIA. Shells smooth. 

Section II. ANNULATA. Shells annulated. 

Section III. COSTULATA. Shells ribbed longitudinally. 

Section IV. QUADRILATA. Shells cancellated. 

Section Y. ARMATA. Shells spinose. 

Subgenus MEIOCERAS, Carpenter, 1858. 

Young shell loosely spiral, not in one plane (PL 66, fig. 43);. 
the adult truncate behind, something like a cow's-horn, some- 
what inflated, smooth, aperture oblique; operculum externally 
concave, 

Most of the species occur on the east coast of America between 
Florida and Rio de la Plata. 

Subgenus STREBLOCERAS, Carpenter, 1858. 

Shell not decollated and without septa, the permanent spiral 
nucleus lying in a plane obliquely perpendicular to the adult 
tube (PL 66, figs. 44, 45). Mostly fossil. 

Subgenus WATSONIA, de Folin, 1879. 

Nucleus caducous, tube scarcely curved, conical, aperture 
round, very oblique, encircled by a strong rib. 

Subgenus PARASTROPHIA, cle Folin. 1869. 

Shell tubular, with a scarcely spiral and entirely posterior 
pointed nucleus, the embryonic shell only having disappeared, 
anterior part of tube inflated (PL 66, f. 46). 

Moreletia, de Folin, 1868 (not Gray, 1855), and Spirolidium 
Costa (in part), are S3'nonyms. 

The feature of this group is the persistence of the second or 
adolescent stage of growth, in the adult typical Caecum always 
lost by truncation. The posterior end is septate, but pointed.

the left, when looking at the back of the shell ; operculum con- 
cave. Length, *13 inch. 

New England, Long Island Sound. 

Because of C. Cooperi, Carpenter, Dr. Cooper changed the 
name of this species to C. Smithii and Prof. Yerrill to C. costa- 
tum, but as Smith's species was published before Carpenter's, 
both these names fall into the synonymy. It is a pity that such 
a little shell should be burthened with such a large synonymy 
and for which there is no excuse. The desire to rush into print 
is so overmastering that no one is deterred by such a slight 
obstacle as being unable to refer to the literature of his subject. 
The figure given by Yerrill represents the adolescent stage of 
sculpture, with less numerous ribs (fig. 85).

FAMILY EULIMIDM. 

Animal with slender, subulate tentacles and eyes sessile at 
their outer bases, proboscis retractile, invaginate, when extended 
very long;, mouth without jaw or radula ; foot elongated, pro- 
duced in front, mantle with anterior rudimentary siphonal fold. 

Shell small, generally elongated, subulate or turriculated, 
shining, polished, with spire usually curved or distorted ; aper- 
ture oval, pyriforra, entire, with simple lip, the columellar margin 
more or less thickened. Operculum corneous, paucispiral, some- 
times absent. 

This family, together with the Turbinellidae and Pyramidellidae 
which follow it in the present volume of monographs, constitutes 
the division Gymnoglossa of Gray, including proboscidiferous 
mollusks having no radula ; the Solariidee and Cancellariidse, also 
originally included therein, have radulse and are otherwise related 
more closely to different groups. 

But-little is known of the animals of these little shells ; it is 
not certain, but probable that the sexes are separated. They 
creep with the foot much in advance of the head, which is usu- 
ally concealed within the aperture of the shell, the tentacles only 
protruding. They are more or less parasitic on sea-urchins, 
holothurians, etc. The small size of the shells, absence of color 
in most of the groups, and of sculpture, make the discrimination 
of species somewhat difficult. 

The Eulimidae have been monographed by Arthur Adams, 
Thes. Conchy liorum, ii, 793-805. G. B. Sowerby, Reeve's Con- 
chologia Iconica, xv, 78 species, 1866. 

Synopsis of Genera. 
Genus EULIMA, Risso, 1826. 

Shell imperforate, subulate, many-whorled, polished, porcel- 
lanous, spire usually curved or twisted to one side, bearing on 
one side only, a series of varices forming ribs internally and 
marking the position of successive mouths, apex acute ; aperture 
oval, entire, pointed above, rounded below, the lip simple, a little 

(238) 



259 

thickened, columellar margin reflected. Operculum corneous, 
pancispiral, the nucleus near the inner lip. 

Animal with subulate tentacles, approaching at the base, eyes 
large, nearly sessile, foot truncated in front, mentum bilobed, 
opercular lobe winged on each side, branchial plume single. 

Over fifty species have been described, from tropical and 
temperate seas. The genus appeared early in the secondary and 
became abundant in forms during the Tertiary period. 

The foot of Eulima secretes a mucous filament which assists 
to sustain it in the water. The parasitism of several species has 
been observed. E. distorta lives in the interior of HololTiuria 
intestinalis upon the coast of Norway; several species have 
been captured in the intestines of Holothurians at the Philippine 
Islands, and one of them insinuates itself so deeply in the integu- 
ments of the Holothuria that only the summit of its spire remains 
exposed ; at New Caledonia they have been observed attached 
to Asterise. 

The synonyms are Pasithea, Lea (in part), 1833, and Balds, 
Leach, 1847. Monterosato has proposed two sections Vitreolina 
and Acicularia, for some of the Mediterranean species. The 
first contains the small vitreous species without internal varices, 
with curved spire and slightly obtuse apex ; the second has the 
apex acute, the shell white, the internal varices occasional. 

Subgenus SUBULARTA, Monterosato, 1884. 

Shell subulately turriculated ; whorls a little flattened on the 
side, smooth, polished, often ornamented with spiral colored 
bands, a succession of slight varices on each side of the spire, 
not always apparent ; aperture oblong, narrow, entire ; inner lip 
thickened, a little sinuous in the middle, outer lip sharp, flexuous. 

I reluctantly use the above name in preference to the better 
known one of Leiostraca, H. and A. Adams, 1853, on account of 
Liostracus, Albers, 1850. 

Section HALIELLA, Monterosato, 1878. Animal blind. 

Subgenus BACULA, H. and A. Adams, 1863. 
Differs from Eulima in having spiral striae, and the columella 
twisted back so as to form an acute angle at the base of the 
aperture. Arcuella, Nevill, 1874, is a synonym. 






260 EVLIMID^). 

Subgenus APICALTA, A. Adams, 1862. 

Shell solid, spire twisted with decidedly mucronated apex, 
aperture oblong. 

Subgenus MUCRONALIA, A. Adams, 1862. 

Shell subulate, straight, often colored, pupoidal, with mu- 
cronate apex ; aperture oval-oblong. 

The distinction between this group and Apicalia is a very 
slight one. 

Subgenus SELMA, A. Adams, 1864.

large ; aperture elongately ovate ; columella arcuate, obliquely 
subplicate. 

Subgenus STYLIFERINA, A. Adams, 1860.

apex inucronate, nucleus sinistral ; aperture subquadrangular. 
Parasitic on Asteria and Ophiura. 

Subgenus LAMBERTIA, Souverbie, 1869. 

Shell pu pi form, white, very smooth, polished ; spire mucro- 
nate, cylindrical, the summit mamillated ; whorls few ; aperture

lip a little reflected at the 'base, columella slightly twisted. 
Operculum unknown. 

Subgenus AMAURELLA, A. Adams, 1867. 

Shell small, oval, imperforate, white, shining, summit mamil- 
lated ; lip and columella thick. 

Resembles Macrocheilus in miniature, and is, perhaps, more 
nearly related to Stylifer. 

Subgenus EULIMOPSIS, Brugnone, 1880. 

A fossil group ; the base concentrically striate, whorls scarcely 
convex, suture distinct, aperture subrhomboidal, lip sinuous, 
columella twisted, base subchanneled.

basal channel. E. FUSIFORMIS, Gabb. Tertiary, West Indies. 
(Struct, and Syst. Conch., ii, t. 68, f. 86.) 

Genus SCALENOSTOMA, Desh., 1863. 

Imperforate, turriculated, surface not enameled, suture mar- 
gined ; whorls numerous, the last with carinated periphery ; 
aperture sub trigonal, entire, a little arcuated, columella simple, 
rectilinear, forming an angle at its junction with the lip, lip 
obliquely, deeply notched near the suture. 

Isle of Bourbon. 

Subgenus SUBEULIMA, Souverbie, 1875. 

Shell much twisted, not enameled, whorls margined at the 
suture and with a series of varices on the right side, as in 
Eulima,\&s\, whorl with carinated periphery, but the lip without 
superior sinus. 

New Caledonia. 
Genus NISO, Risso, 1826. 

Shell deeply umbilicated, turriculated, many whorled, polished, 
apex acute ; whorls slightly convex, the last with angulated 
periphery, aperture angulated above and below. Operculum as 
in Eulima. 

China, Philippines, W. America. 

Bonellia, Desh., 1838, and Janella, Grat., 1838, are synonyms. 

Section YOLUSIA, A. Adams, 1861. 
. Shell longitudinally ribbed. 
Section PAL^EONISO, Gemmellaro, 1878. 

Shell thicker, more dilated at the base, more pupoidal in form, 
lip with a slight posterior sinus. Secondary. N. pupoides, 
Gemm. Lias. 

Genus HOPLOPTERON, Fischer, 1876. 

Shell very small, imperforate, elongate-turreted, shining, with 
obtuse summit ; suture linear ; whorls continuous, the earlier 
ones smooth, rather flattened, the others bearing on each side a 
long, triangular, wing-like varix ; aperture rounded oval, entire, 
lip simple, sharp. 

China. 

The minuteness of this shell and its bizarre appearance suggest 
that it is embryonic. It is only 1-15 mill. long. 



262 

Genus STYLIFER, Broderip, 1832. 

Imperforate, hyaline, thin, ovoid or elongated, smooth, pol- 
ished ; whorls numerous, apex very sharp, sometimes bent, 
nucleus sinistral, last whorl globular ; aperture suboval, inner 
lip smooth, arcuated, outer lip slightly sinuous, thin, simple. No 
operculum. 

Body ciliated ; tentacles slender, subulate, with eyes sessile at 
their outer bases ; mantle reflected upon and more or less sur- 
rounding the shell, forming a siphonal lobe on the right side ; 
foot linguiform, narrow, tubular in front, where it extends much 
beyond the head, attenuated behind, with a median groove below; 
verge sharp, elongated, resembling a tentacle. 

About twenty species are known from warm seas. 

Stylina, Fleming, 1828 (Gray), is a synonym. 

Stylifer is commensal or parasitic in its habits, occurring on 
Echinoderms ; some are found in the teguments of Asteriae, 
others on the upper face of the shells of Echini, between the 
spines, and generally near the anal opening ; S. Orbignyanus 
lodges itself in a spine of Cidaris, which becomes deformed in 
growth, forming an interior cell containing a pair of Stylifers 
and some young ones, the cell having a small mouth on either 
side ; other species are obtained from Holothurians, Comatulse, 
etc. 

The species mentioned above, inhabiting the spines of Cidaris, 
appears to be viviparous, but S. Turtoni, on the contrary, is 
oviparous. Those which live upon the external surface of their 
host are probably commensal rather than truly parasitic. 

How does the S. Orbignyanus obtain nourishment ? 

Subgenus CYTHNIA, Carpenter, 1864. 

Imbedded in star fishes like Stylifer, from which it is distin- 
guished by its normal nuclear whorls, and thin concentric oper- 
culum. W. Coast of N. America. 

Subgenus PLICIFER, H. Adams, 1868. 

Imperforate, ovately subulate, not shining; spire styliform, 
nucleus sinistral, columella plicate ; lip floxuous, sinuate behind, 
aperture entire in front. Found on coral, at Ceylon ; the shell 
resembles Leptoconchus in texture.

the height, margins disunited, the columellar margin straight. 
Operculum non-spiral. E. MIRABILIS, Miiller. 

Found parasitic in Sinapta digitata, one of the Holothuriidse,

spirally striated. Devonian, Australia. The type is sinistral. 

Genus MACROCHEILUS, Phillips, 1841. 

Shell thick, imperforate, ventricose, aperture effuse below, 
outer lip thin, coluinella callous, slightly tortuous and plicate in 
front. 

Devonian Carboniferous. M. SCHLOTHEIMII, d'Arch. (Struct, 
and Syst. Conch., t. 68, f. 91).

rally striated or grooved, last whorl large ; mouth oval, angular 
behind, widened and rounded below. B. STRIATA, Sowb., Jurassic. 



264 EULIMID^E. 

Genus LOXONEMA, Phillips, 1841. 

Shell elongated, many-whorled ; aperture simple, attenuated 
above, effused below, with a sigmoidal edge to the outer lip ; 
spire interiorly septate. 

Like many other palaeozoic genera, the bad condition of many 
of the species and the variation in form and sculpture render it 
difficult to place it properly in a systematic work ; some of the 
species might go into Turbonillidae, others appear closely allied 
to Chemnitzia, and might even be synonymous with it. Michelia, 
Romer, and Holopella, Sandberger (in part), are synonyms. 
L. COSTATUM, Sandb. (Struct, and Syst. Conch., t. 68, f. 97). 

Genus STROBEUS, de Koninck, 1881.

by nearly straight growth-lines ; aperture angular above, slightly 
effuse below, lip simple, nearly straight; axis imperforate.

Allied to Loxonema, but has distinct revolving carinae, and 
wants the sigmoid outer lip of that genus. 

Genus RIGAUXIA, Qossmann, 1885. 

Shell narrowly elongated, nearly cylindrical, spirally striate; 
aperture rounded in front, lip a little sinuous above, inner lip 
thickened behind and separated from the columella in front by 
a groove. Fossil, Bathonian. 

Genus CL1MACINA, Gemmellaro, 1878. 
Shell imperforate, many-whorled, elongated, very finely longi- 
tudinally striated ; aperture oval, rounded in front, lip simple. 
C. CATHERINE, Gemm. Lias. 

Genus SUBULITES, Conrad, 1842. 

Shell fusiform, spire produced ; volutions convex, the last 
large ; columella bent and truncated at the base, where it is 
separated from the outer lip by a notch as in Achatina ; outer 



EULIMID.E. 265 

lip very slightly notched near the upper end ; surface of shell 
smooth. Palaeozoic', United States.

and Polyphemopsis, Portlock (in part), are synonyms. 

Genus FUSISPIRA, Hall, 1872. 

This Silurian group, which I have placed in Buccinidse. may 
possibly belong here. 
F. VENTRICOSA, Hall (Struct, and Syst. Conch., ii, 141 ,t. 51, f. 50). 

Genus CHEMNITZIA, d'Orb,, 1850. 

Shell comparatively large, elongate conical ; spire many- 
whorled, the last rather large, somewhat produced below ; aper- 
ture ovate, somewhat effuse at base, peristome not continuous,

imperforate ; surface longitudinally striate or costate, sometimes 
decussated, rarely nodular. Secondary and Tertiary. C. CON- 
DENSATA, Desh. (Struct, and Syst. Conch., ii, t. 68, f. 96). 

The recent shells known as Chemnitzia, and which were origi- 
nally included by d'Orbigny in his diagnosis of 1839, are referred 
to Tu.rbonilla, Risso ; they are smaller, ribbed, and do not possess 
the broad posterior lip-sinus of the fossil group. 

Section CHEMNITZIA (restricted). 

Shell lengthened, with cross ribs ; mouth oval, rounded or 
angular in front ; spire straight or slightly curved, somewhat 
callous ; outer lip sharp.

Judging by the figures, this species ought to be united to 
the preceding. E. clara^A. Ad. (unfigured) is made a synonym 
by Sowerby.

Subgenus APICALTA, A. Adams, 1862. 

The distinctions between Apicalia and Mucronalia are slight. 
The type species of the present group is unfortunately unfigured, 
and the two additional species appear to me rather to belong to 
Mucronalia, the spire being straight.

parent; whorls few, spire straight, suture narrowly margined, 
last whorl obscurely angulated on the periphery, varices few, 
indistinct. Length, 20 mill. 

Tahiti. 

In this species the columella is somewhat drawn back below, 
making the aperture a little oblique ; the tenuity of the body- 
whorl below the angle is the most distinguishing feature.

additional apical ones which are suddenly contracted, mucronate, 
suture margined, aperture narrow, columella oblique, slightly

This, the only species, is unfigured. No dimensions are given. 



286 EULIMA. 

Subgenus STYLIFERINA, A. Adams, 1860. 

Adams writes concerning this group : 

The genus Entoconcha of J. Milller, which is parasitic on 
Sinapta, also has "the columellar margin straight; 1 ' but the 
form is described as being very different from Styliferina, there 
being almost no spire, and the aperture being transverse and 
semilunar. I have never seen a specimen of Entoconcha, which 
is also said to be operculate. My shells were, unfortunately, in 
the case of both the species, dredged dead, though perfect. I 
examined dozens of the blue Asterinse that came up with them, 
but found no parasite, nor was I more fortunate with Spatangi 
or Clypeasteres. 

In describing E. callosa, Mr. Adams places the group in Litio- 
pidse ; Dr. Fischer and myself have continued to regard it as a 
member of the present family.

behind. Probably carnivorous, but the lingual teeth are want- 
ing, or rudimentary. 

No zoological characters of importance separate this family 
from the Turbonillidse ; the distinction is mainly one of conve- 
nience, the present group containing those shells, usually larger, 
having two or more columellar plications (only one in Syrnola), 
the Turbonillidoe being composed of minute shells having a single 
small plication, or without any. 

The heterostrophe and turned-over summit of the spire is one 
of the most remarkable features of the shell, a character found 
in few other families of mollusks. In the animal the presence of 
a mentum or veil is also a curious feature. It is developed below 
the mouth, and may be derived from the conjunction of buccal 
tentacles, or perhaps represents the propodium, as in Natica. 
The genus P3 7 ramidella and its subgroups contain all the living 
species of the family, and a few fossils, cretaceous and tertiary ; 
the other genera are exclusively fossil. " The Pyramidellidae 
present subjects of much interest to the students of extinct 
mollusca ; numerous forms, bearing all the aspect of being mem- 
bers of this familj- occur. . . . Mai^ o f them are gigantic 
compared with existing species, and the group, as a whole, may

be regarded rather as appertaining to past ages than the present 
epoch." FOBBES.

Synopsis of Genera. 

Genus PYRAMIDELLA, Lam., 1799. 

Shell turriculated, of many whorls, longitudinally ribbed or 
smooth ; aperture semioval, entire, rounded in front, the columella 
straight, with anterior strong plications, outer lip sharp, often 
plicate within. 

Inhabits tropical seas. Fossil, cretaceous and tertiary. 

Subgenus PYRAMIDELLA (sensu stricto). 

Shell smooth typically with perforated axis. P. DOLABRATA, 
Linnaeus. 

Obeliscus (Humphrey, 1791), Morch, 1852, is a synonym. 

Section LONCH^US, Morch, 1874. 

Shell imperforate, last whorl with a median sulcus. P. 
PUNCTATA, Chemn. 

Section TRIPTYCHUS, Morch, 1874. 

Shell subulate, spirally paucilirate, aperture lirate within, sub- 
sinuated in front, columella triplicate. P. NIVEA, Morch. 

Section AMOURA, de Folin, 1873. 

Shell subcylindrical, elongated, with feeble longitudinal ribs 
and two spiral cords ; last whorl concentrically striated at the 
base ; columella biplicate. P. ANGULIFERA, Folin. 

Section TIBERIA, Jeffreys, 1875. 

Shell very small, umbilicated, columella biplicate. P. NITIDULA, 
A. Ad. 

Subgenus OTO PLEURA, Fischer, 1885. 

Shell oval, turriculated, pupiform, with longitudinal ribs; 
aperture oval, subchanneled at the base of the columella ; colu- 



296 

mella with several plications, lip thickened, often expanded. P. 
AURIS-CATI, Chemn. 

This is the restricted Pyramidella of H. and A. Adams and 
most of their successors ; the smooth shells which Lamarck 
designated by that name, being generally known as Obeliscus. 
The erroneous application of these names has become so well- 
established that I confess I follow Dr. Fisher with some reluc- 
tance in his correction of the errors. 

Subgenus SYRNOLA, A. Adams, 1860. 

Shell small, subulate, polished ; whorls flattened, suture well 
marked ; columelia with a single plication, outer lip simple. 

The Syrnolae are small, slender Pyramidellids, with a single 
columellar plait. P. GRACILLINA, A. Ad. 

Section AGATHA, A. Ad., 1860. 

Shell oval acuminated ; spiral plication very strong. P. AUS- 
TRALIS, Angas. 

Section AMATHIS, A. Adams, 1861. 

Aperture dilated, rounded in front, acute behind. Possibly 
synonymous with Agatha. P. VJRGO, A. Ad. 

Section OSCTLLA, A. Adams, 186T. 

Shell solid, ovate or pyramidally turreted, im perforate; whorls 
strongly spirally lirate ; aperture oval or subquadrate, with a 
strong, transverse, median parietal plication. P. ANNULATA, A. 

Ad. 

Section ORINA, A. Adams, 1870. 

Shell conoidal, profoundly umbilicated ; whorls flattened, 
smooth ; aperture subquadrangular, with a single columellar fold. 
O. PINGUICULA, A. Ad. 

Section ELUSA, A. Adams, 1861. 

Shell subulate, turreted ; whorls longitudinally plicate ; aper- 
ture ovate, columelia with a single plait, outer lip lirate within. 

P. SUBULATA, P. TERES, A. Ad. 

The above groups are all founded on Japanese species, mostly 
unfigured ; the characters appear to be unimportant. 



PYRAMIbELLID^. 29? 

Subgenus CHRYSALLTDA, Carpenter, 1857. 

Shell small, pupiform, generally cancellated; peristorne con- 
tinuous, edge of lip simple, columella profoundly but distinctly 
plaited ; operculum (in the typical species) radiately corrugated. 
West Coast of America, Japan, West Indies. P. COMMUNIS, C. B. 
Ad. 

This group might be equally well placed in Odostomia. 

Section MORMULA, A. Ad., 1863. 

Subulately turreted, rissoid, solid, thick, longitudinally plicate ; 
aperture large, columella spirally tortuous, lip thickened within, 
margin acute. P. RISSOINA, P. ACLIS, A. Ad. 

Lancea, Pease, 1867, is a synonym. 

Section STYLOPTYGMA, A. Ad., 1860. 

Shell pupiform, subpellucid ; whorls a little convex, with 
transverse grooves ; aperture subquadrangular, lip dilated, colu- 
mella obliquely plicate above. P. STYLINA, A. Adams. 

Subgenus ACT^EOPYRAMIS, Fischer, 1885. 

Shell elongate, imperforate, subconical ; whorls numerous, with 
spiral striae, sometimes cancellated; aperture oval-elongated, 
rounded in front ; columella with a strong spiral fold. P. STRIATA, 
Gray. 

The name is substituted for Monoptyyma, Gray, 1840, preoc- 
cupied by Lea, 1833. These shells recall the genus Actseon by 
their form and sculpture, and may possibly include some of the 
small groups Myonia, Kleinella and Leucotina of A. Adams, now 
arranged with that genus. 

Section MUMIOLA, A. Adams, 1863. 

Shell thin, elongate or ovate; whorls convex, cancellate or 
granulose; aperture ovate, the lip-margin regularly arcuate. P. 
SPIRATA, A. Adams. Philippines. 

Section CARELTOPSIS. Morch, 1874. 

Shell turriculated, having the form of Carelia Cumingii. P, 
STYLIFORMIS, Morch. Went Indies. 



298 PYKAMIDELLID^E. 

Genus SYRXOLOPSIS, E.. A. Smith, 1880. 

Shell subulate, smooth, imperforate ; aperture broadly sinuated 
at the base, outer lip sinuous, slightly thickened, furnished far 
within with one or two prominent lirae, columella with a distinct 
plait. Operculum unknown. S. LACUSTRIS, Smith. Lake Tanga- 
nyika, E. Africa (fresh water). 

The systematic position of this group is very uncertain : being 
lacustrine, Dr. Fischer has included it with doubt in the Hydro- 
biinse, but the characters of the shell (the apex is eroded) ap- 
pear to me to be closer to the present family. 

* * * 
Genus NERIXJBA, Defrance, 1825. 

Shell elongated, many-whorled, nearly cylindrical; aperture 
channeled and produced in front, with plications within the outer 
lip and on the columella. About 150 species, Jurassic and Creta- 
ceous. N. TRINODOSA, d'Orb., Struct, and Syst. Conch., t. 68, f. 
10; N. TRACHEA, Desh., Ibid. t. 68, f. 13. 

Section NERIN^EA (sensu stricto). 

Folds simple, two or three on the columella, one or two within 
the outer lip ; axis solid or perforated. 

Section NERINELLA, Sharpe, 1850. 

Columella solid, folds simple, one on the outer lip, and one or 
none on the columella. 

Section TROCHALIA, Sharpe, 1850. 

Columella perforated, with one fold, outer wall simple, or 
thickened, or with one simple fold. 

Section PTYGMATTS, Sharpe, 1850. 

Columella solid or perforated, usually with three folds ; outer 
wall with one to three folds, some of them complicated in form. 

Subgenus HALLOYSTA, Briart and Cornet, 1878. 
Shell elongated, turriculated ; whorls numerous, axis widely 
umbilicated ; aperture rounded or subquadrangular, columella 
biplicate. 

N. BIPLTCATA, Br. et Corn. Struct, and Syst. Conch., t. 68, f. 14. 
L. Eocene of Mons, Belgium. 



PYRAMIDELLA. 299 

Subgenus CRYPTOPLOCUS, Pictet and Campiche, 1854. 

Shell like Nerinaea, but without columellar or labral plaits ; 
there is one plication on the posterior face of the aperture (as in 
some Cerithiums) ; aperture rounded in front, without channel; 
axis umbilicated or imperforate ; 7 species, Jurassic and Cre- 
taceous. Europe. 
N. MONILIFERA, d'Orb. 

Subgenus APTYXIS, Zittel, 1873. 

Shell turreted, nearly c}^lindrical, imperforate; whorls numer- 
ous, not embracing; aperture lengthened subquadrangular, 
without plications, the columella with a fold-like thickening. 

The synonyms are Pachystylus, Gemmellaro, 1878, and Aptyxi- 
ella, Fischer, 1885. The latter name was given because of 
Aptyxis, Troschel, 1868 which, however, is a synonym. 
A. SEXCOSTATA, d'Orb. Jurassic. 

? Genus SOLENISCUS, Meek and Worthen, 1860. 

Shell fusiform, smooth, bodj'-whorl contracted below into a 
distinct canal, columella with a single oblique plait. 
S. TYPICUS, Meek. Carboniferous, Illinois. 

Genus PYRAMIDELLA, Lam., 1799. 

Typical Group. 
P. VENTRICOSA, Guerin. PI. 72, figs. 63-65. 

Slightly striated longitudinally, the last whorl ventricose ; 
yellowish white with irregular light chestnut undulating longi- 
tudinal stripes, more or less intensified into revolving bands ; 
columella triplicate. Length, 1-25 inches. 

Viti Islands, Vanikoro, Singapore. 

Besides the type, I figure a white variety. P. scitula, A. Ad. 
(fig. 65), is only a younger state of this species. 

P. CINCTA, Reeve. PL 72, fig. 66. 

Smooth, white, with a broad central chestnut zone, appearing 
on the spire whorls ; columella triplicate, perforation narrow. 

Length, 20 mill.

nut spiral lines on the body, and two on the spire-whorls ; outer 
lip often lirate within. Length, 1-1 '4 inches. 

West Indies. 

Strombus columella, Meusch., is a synonym. 

Yar. SUBDOLABRATUS, Morch. 

Shell thin, shortly conical, last whorl inflated, lip without 
ridges. Runs into the type form. 

West Indies. 
Yar. TEREBELLUM, Mull. Fig. 73. 

Whorls somewhat less convex, bands a little wider and choco- 
late colored. 

Sandwich Islands, Viti Is., Mauritius, Eed Sea. 

Usually known under the name of the next variety, with 
which it is probably synonymous. 

Yar. TEREBELLOIDES, A. Ad. Fig. 74. 

More slender than the last variety, columella with two instead 
of three plicae ; whorls with two or three slim chestnut lines. 

Length, 1 inch. Polynesia. 



PYRAMIDELLA. 301 

P. PULCHELLA, A. Ad. PL 72, fig. 75. 

Shell polished, yellowish white, with a sutural chocolate band, 
appearing on the periphery of the last whorl ; columella with 

two plications. 

Red Sea, Japan. 

Described as having a single plication on the columella, which 
would place it in Syrnola, but a second plica is more or less 
developed. 

Section LONCIUEUS, Morch, 1874. 

P. ACUS, Gmel. PL 72, figs. 76-78. 

Polished, white, with dark chestnut or chocolate spots, usually 
arranged in three revolving series on the spire whorls and five 
series on the body; columella three-plaited, the upper plait largest, 
lip sometimes lirate within. Length, 1*25-2 in. 

Polynesia, Mauritius, Red Sea. 

It is P. punctata (Chemn.), Morch ; P. guttata, Link, and 
P. maculosa, Lam. The peripheral groove becomes in this, as in 
most of the other species of the section, either obsolete or 
indicated by a slight angle. 

P. SULCATA, A. Ad. PL 72, figs. 79-83. 

White, nebulousl} 7 ' longitudinally strigate with pale orange- 
chestnut, frequently breaking up into revolving series of dots ; 
aperture channeled at the aperture, columella three-plicate. 

Length, 1-1-5 in. 

Sandwich Is., Philippines, Australia, Mauritius, Red Sea. 

Adams has used for this species a MS. name given it by 
Nuttall; P. tessellata, A. Ad. (fig. 80), is founded on a younger 
slimmer individual ; P. monilis, A. Acl. (fig. 81), represents a 
faded specimen of the same form and age, and P. teres, A. Ad. 
(fig. 82), is from a still younger, faded specimen. All these 
forms, and the intermediates, are represented in the series before 
me. I am inclined to place here also, P. Pratii, Bernardi (fig. 
83), a specimen from unknown locality, having the characters of 
coloration and basal sinus of P. sulcata, but with a deeper per- 
ipheral groove and angle than usual. 

P. TURRITA, A. Ad. PL 72, fig. 84, 85. 

Fulvous, obsoletely maculated with a deeper tint ; whorls 



302 PYUAMIDELLA. 

flattened, suture deep, crenulated, frequently whitish, last whorl 
with a distinct me'dian sulcus, aperture produced in front. 

Length, 22 mill. NorLh Australia, New Caledonia. 

The shell which is figured in the Thesaurus Conchyliorum as 
P. gracilis, Brocchi (fig. 85), appears to be very similar to this 
species ; the true P. gracilis is a Turbonilla and = T. lactea, 
Linn. Issel identifies a Red Sea species with the figure of 
gracilis in Kiener, but recognizes the distinction of that figure 
from Brocchi 's species, and calls it P. Kieneri. 

P. CHEMNITZIANA, A. Ad. PI. 72, fig. 86. 

Narrowly elongated, white ; whorls numerous, rather flattened, 
with angle at the suture, and on periphery of last whorl, aperture 
small, columella two-plaited. Length, 9 mill. 

Viti Is. 
P. GARRETTII, Try on. PI. 72, fig. 87. 

Whorls flattened, yellowish, with chestnut colored nebulous 
longitudinal strigations, suture channeled, last whorl with a per- 
ipheral sulcus ; columella three-plicate, the upper fold very 
strong, lower ones approximate and more oblique. 

Length, 15 mill. Viti Islands (Garrett). 

P. CONICA, C. B. Adams. PL 72, figs. 88, 89. 

Whorls flattened, with deep channeled suture, which is some- 
times slightly crenulated, periphery also channeled ; fulvous, 
faintly banded with darker color; aperture produced below, 
columella triplicate. Length, 13-15 mill. 

Florida, Panama, Mazatlan, Cape St. Lucas, San Diego, Cal. 

Described from Panama; P. variegata, Carp., from Cape St. 
Lucas, etc., also answers to the description perfectly. I have 
received -the same species from Sarasota Baj^, Fla., under the 
erroneous name of P. tessellata, Ads. It was dredged there in two 
fms. water by Mr. Henry Hemphill. 

P. hastata, A. Ad. (fig 8 ( ,)), from St. Elena, W. Columbia, is 
another synonym; it is included by Morch in his West Indian 
catalogue as a synonym of P. Candida, Meuschen. 

P. CANALICULATA, Sowb. PI. 73, fig. 90. 

Whorls flattened, yellowish, banded and spotted with chestnut, 
with fine longitudinal white raised strigations, appearing like low 



PYR AMI BELLA. 303 

rounded riblets, with occasional darker mac illations, especially 
on the base, suture and periphery channeled ; aperture channeled 
at the base, columella straight, three plaited. Length, 15 mill. 

Sandwich Islands. 
P. ACHATES, Gould. PI. 73, fig. 91. 

Shell pupiform, with obtuse apex and elongated aperture ; 
light fulvous, with pale chestnut maculations in revolving series; 
suture and periphery channeled ; columella triplicate. 

Length, 12 mill. 

W. Coast of Mexico. 

P. clavulus, A. Ad., is a synonym. 

P. JUCUNDA, Angas. PI. 73, fig. 92. 

Smooth, shining, white, with two chestnut bands on each 
whorl, three on the body-whorl, suture impressed ; u columella 
with a prominent twisted fold encircling the pillar." 

Length, 6 mill. 

Port Jackson, Australia. 

According to the description this would be a Syrnola, but the 
figure shows two columellar folds. 

P. PAUMOTENSIS, Tryon. PI. 73, fig. 93. 

Shell thin, smooth, hyaline, white, upper whorls suddenly taper- 
ing to an acute apex, base slighty produced ; whorls 9, convex, 
suture margined ; columella slightly callous, with two oblique 
plaits, the lower one most conspicuous, the upper smaller and 
deep-seated. Length, 10 mill. 

Paumotus and Society Islands. 

The form of the spire and position of the plicae indicate for 
this species a distinct section of the genus. It much resembles 
Agatha Australis, Angas, in the lower plication. Described as 
P. hyalina, Garrett; I have changed the name on account of P. 
hyalina, D linker.

P. NIVEA, Morch. PI. 73, fig. 1. 

White, slender ; whorls flattened, each with three spiral ribs, 
the two upper ones nodulous, body-whorl with two plain ribs below 
the nodulous ones, and three revolving ridges below the periphery, 
forming columellar folds ; aperture produced below. 

Length, 8-5 mill. 

Key West, Fla. ; West Indies. 

P. vincta, Dall, is a synonym. The shell is scarcely a Pyra- 
midella the sculpture and plications are different. 

Section AMOURA, de Folin, 1873. 
P. ANGULIFERA, de Folin. (Description inaccessible to me.) 

Section TIBERIA, Jeffreys, 1875. 
P. NITIDULA, A. Adams. PI. 73, fig. 96. 

Deeply umbilicated, small, white, often banded, smooth ; 
whorls few, rather flat, suture impressed, columella two-plaited. 

Length, 4 mill. 

Japan, Mediterranean Sea, Cape Verd Is., West Indies. 

These localities are all abundantly confirmed. Dr. Jeffreys 
writes : " 1 have carefully compared my ' Porcupine ' and Medi- 
terranean specimens with those from Japan and Corea, which I 
received from the late Mr. Arthur Adams and my friend Capt. 
St. John, and I cannot detect the slightest difference between 
any of them in shape, colored band, umbilicus or dentition of 
the pillar" (Zool. Proc., 364, 1884). Dr. Jeffreys considers the 
following synonymous : 

P, MINUSCULA, Mpnts. ; P. MEDITERRANEA, Monts. ; P. SUBFAR- 
CINATA and P. TINCTA, Watson ; P. L^EVIUSCULA, Jeffreys (not S. 
Wood); P. EXILIS (var.), Jeffreys. 



PYKAMIDELLA. 305 

Subgcnus OTOPLEURA, Fischer, 1885. 
P. AURIS-CATI, Chemn. 'PL 73, fig. 95. 

Smooth, white, longitudinally ribbed, ribs ending in nodules 
at the sutures, with spiral rows of chestnut spots r interstices of 
the ribs spirally striated. Length, '75-1 inch. 

Philippines, Mauritius. 
The synonyms are P. spiralis, Wood, P. plicata, Lam. 

P. NODICINCTA, A. Ad. PI. 73, fig. 100. 

White, with spiral rows of chestnut spots ; whorls angulated 
above, with longitudinal ribs produced into nodules at the angles ; 
lower part of body-whorl pitted, forming a sort of network be- 
tween the pits. Length, *75-l inch. Philippines. 

I think this will prove to be a variety of the foregoing species. 

P. MITBALIS, A. Ad. PI. 73, figs. 94, 97, 2, 3. 

Whitish, clouded and indistinctly banded with pale brown; 

whorls rather convex, longitudinally ribbed, slightly angulated 

at the suture, interstices spirally striated. Length, 15-18 mill. 

Philippines, Talieiti ; Mauritius, Red Sea. 

P. PROPINQUA, A. Ad. (fig. 97). P. VARIEGATA, A. Ad. (fig. 3), 
and P. MAGNIFICA, Ads. and Reeve (fig. 2), appear to be syno- 
nyms. 
P. GLANS, Reeve. PI. 73, fig. 98. 

White, with a narrow chocolate band above and below the 
suture, the lower half of the body-whorl chocolate colored, longi- 
tudinally closely ribbed, the interstices spirally striated. 

Length, 12 mill. Philippines. 

Possibly only a variety of the foregoing species. 

P. NITIDA, A. Ad. PI. 73, fig. 99. 

Oral, shining, white, sometimes marbled with pale chestnut ; 
longitudinally flatly ribbed, interstices pitted. Length, 7 '5 mill. 

Philippines, Viti Is. 
P. CORRUGATA, Lam. PI. 73, fig. 4. 

White, with small sparse yellow spots near the suture, longi- 
tudinally plicate, the interstices spirally striated ; columella 
three-plaited. Length, 23 mill.

306 PYRAMIDELLA. 

Subgenus SYRNOLA, A. Adams, 1860. 
P. ELEGANS, A. Ad. PL 73, fig. 7. 

Subperforate, longitudinally and spirally striate, apex very 
acute ; fulvous, with a chestnut line on the periphery and suture ; 
suture channeled ; whorls flat, periphery obtusety angulated. 
Length, 9 mill. 

Singapore. 
P. BRUNNEA, A. Ad. PL 73, figs. 9, 8. 

Solid, narrow, yellowish brown; whorls 15, flatly convex, 
aperture ribbed within. Length, 15 mill. 

Japan. 

This species is figured twice in the Conch. Iconica, first under 
the above name, and again as P. fulva, Sowb. (fig. 8), with 
brunnea, A. Ad., as a synonym ; Mr. Sowerby being under the 
impression that his figures represent different species, and that 
Mr. Adams had described them both as brunnea, whereas the 
latter only described brunnea once. 

P. ATTENUATA, A. Ad. PL 73, fig. 5. 

Slender, whitish, shining, finely spirally striated ; whorls flat- 
tened, suture profound. Length, 11-5 mill.

Mormula. 

P. ACICULATA, A. Ad. PL 73, figs. 10, 11. 

Slender, fulvous white; whorls numerous, convex, flattened in 
the middle, longitudinally substriate, suture deep. 

Length, 12'5 mill. 

Ins. Cagayan, Philippines (Cuming); Viti Is. (Garrett). 

Described as an Obeliscus, and afterwards placed in Syrnola. 
Sowerby, who includes both in his Pyramidella, apparently 
supposes them to be distinct species, and changes the name of 
the one to P. denticulata (fig. 11). If his much enlarged figure 
is accurate, this is probably a distinct species. 



PYRAMIDELLA. 307

Bourguignat, who describes (but without figures) several new

lamellae, the second a single one. In consequence of this divi- 
sion, the above species is placed among those having two 
lamellae, and the figure of it given by Mr. Crosse (fig. 56) is 
made a new species under the name of S. Grandidieri, because 
of having only one lamella. I do not believe the distinction 
will hold good, as these plicae are either developed or entirely 
absent in the same species in Pyramidellidne.

FAMILY TURBONILLID^. 

Shell minute, white, slender, elongated, many-whorled, usually 
longitudinally or spirally sculptured ; columella without plica- 
tions or with a single small fold ; apex sinistral. 

Animal as in Pyramidellidjo. Operculum corneous, pauci- 
spiral. 

The species are very small, and mostly more slender than in 
Pyramidellidne ; they are numerous, and have been separated 
into a number of inferior groups, which are, for the most part, 
poorly defined so that their classification is difficult and uncer- 
tain. As most of these groups are founded on European 
species, I have not, as a rule, included any extra-limital forms, 
preferring for my purposes a geographical division of the 
species. Hitherto the species have neither been monographed 
nor catalogued.

columella with a strong spiral tooth. 

Length (a fragment only), 6 mill.

This species has the mouth of an Odostomia, but the form of 
the shell and want of sculpture together constitute an Eulimella 
as to external appearance.

band ; whorls 11, flattened. Length, 6 mill. 

New England, Azores, Bay of Biscay, Mediterranean. 

This is Eulimella Smithii, Yerrill (fig. 65). The columellar

Smooth, polished, rather large for the genus, moderately 
elongated, with a tall, regularly tapering spire of more than 
eight moderately convex whorls (apex broken), separated by a 
well-defined, somewhat impressed, rather oblique suture. 

Length (broken), 6'5 mill. 

New England (2033 fathoms). 

Most like E. lucida, but the whorls are more convex, the 
suture more oblique and more impressed, the body-whorl longer, 
more produced anteriorly, the aperture narrower, more elongated, 
and effuse in front.
