Studied material. Syntypes.

Illustrated material. Figs 17 E, 21A1–A3: syntype, Steinebrunn (Austria): SL: 42.2 mm, MD: 25.0 mm, NHMW 1858/0015/0072, illustrated in Hoernes & Auinger (1879, pl. 6, fig. 8).

Revised description. Medium-sized shells with low conical to weakly cyrtoconoid spire and faintly ventricose last whorl. Early spire pointed, later whorls weakly convex with more or less prominent striae, which may grade into delicate cords on the last whorl. Most prominent spiral cord coincides with angulate shoulder. Deep suture; subsutural flexure of medium depth, strongly curved, moderately asymmetrical. Last whorl with spiral cords on lower third; weakly constricted at base with short canal; siphonal fasciole indistinct. No colour pattern preserved.

Shell measurements and ratios. Only two adult specimens are available: SL: 42.2/ 34.1 mm, MD: 25.0/ 20.5 mm, spire angle: 129/125°, last whorl angle: 36/38°, LW: 1.69/1.66, RD: 0.65/0.69, PMD: 0.90/0.90, RSH: 0.08/ 0.13.

Discussion. Hall (1966) discussed a close relationship between Lautoconus rotundus  and L. bitorosus (Fontannes, 1880)  , which is larger and lacks a distinct angulation along the shoulder. Some of the specimens identified as Conus rotundus  by Bałuk (1997, pl. 22, figs 7–8) differ in their elongate outline, the twisted siphonal fasciole and long siphonal canal and represent another species.

Paleoenvironment. Probably shallow coastal environments based on its occurrence at Gainfarn and Steinebrunn ( Zuschin et al. 2007).

Distribution in Paratethys. Badenian (middle Miocene): Vienna Basin: Gainfarn, Steinebrunn ( Austria) ( Hoernes & Auinger 1879); Carpathian Foredeep: Korytnica ( Poland) ( Bałuk 1997); Pannonian Basin: Pécsszabolcs, Szob, Letkés ( Hungary) ( Kovács & Vicián 2013); Transylvanian Basin: Lăpugiu de Sus, Coşteiu de Sus ( Romania) ( Hoernes & Auinger 1879).
