REMARKS. — The single specimen (L 20, W 3, w 0.7, arc 5), has dense, fine riblets along the length of the shell resembling those of a Graptacme species , but it also has 8 weak primary ribs, only observed under magnification, that could place it in Dentalium . Additional material is needed for correct generic placement.
