Artemidiconus da Motta, 1991


Genus Artemidiconus da Motta, 1991 

Type species (by original designation): Conus selenae van Mol, Tursch & Kempf, 1967  ; Recent , Western Atlantic. 

Note. According to Tucker & Tenorio (2009), this genus is characterised by short and rounded shells with convex spire whorls with cords. Nodules on spire whorls are absent or become obsolete very early. The subsutural flexure is shallow and asymmetrical. In addition, we consider the presence of more or less prominent beads on the last whorl as a characteristic feature, being also present on the type species. The genus Artemidiconus  was not treated by Puillandre et al. (2014 a, b).
