Diagnostic characters. Solid, moderately curved shell; circular apertures; anal aperture with a V-shaped lateral notch; fine longitudinal riblets increasing in number during growth and often vanishing on older stages. Larval shell: not available.

Occurrence. Box-corer samples BC04 (9 specimens), BC05 (2), BC06 (2), BC67 (7), BC70 (5), BC71 (2), BC72 (37); cores BC04 (12), BC05 (13), BC21 (6), BC51 (25), BC52 (1), BC67 (4), BC72 (7). Maximum length: 27 mm.

Distribution and habitat. Antalis agilis is distributed from Norway to the Azores and the Mediterranean, dwelling in mud in the 55–4789 m depth interval ( Buhl-Mortensen & Høisaeter 1993; Poppe & Goto 1993; Pons- Moyà & Pons 1999). It was regarded as an exclusive characteristic element of VP (bathyal mud) biocoenosis ( Pérès & Picard 1964; Di Geronimo 1979[a]; Di Geronimo & Bellagamba 1985). In the Santa Maria di Leuca CWC biotope, it was found on muddy bottoms around coral colonies (Mastrototaro et al. 2010), being common in Gryphus-Isidella and mollusk mud thanatofacies (Rosso et al. 2010).

Fossil record. The species seems to appear in the Mediterranean in Middle-Upper Pliocene (Piacenzian), becoming dominant in Pleistocene bathyal deposits ( Caprotti 1979; Di Geronimo & Bellagamba 1985; Di Geronimo et al. 1997; Di Geronimo & La Perna 1997; Di Geronimo et al. 2005; Tabanelli 2008).
