Catulona pensa Rolston, 1992

( Figs. 23–25 View FIGURES 13 – 24 View FIGURES 25 – 36 ; Tab. 2 View TABLE 2 )

Eggs barrel-shaped to subspherical; pearly white prior to embryonic development; operculum broadly round and convex; chorion shiny and smooth. The aero-micropylar processes arranged in an ellipse not coincident to the operculum margin and translucent, short, and clubbed.

The chorion surface is smooth under SEM ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 13 – 24 ). At the posterior pole, there are the remnants of adhesive substances. The operculum may be somewhat granulated, and the eclosion line is evident as a narrow marked strip inward from the AMPs ( Figs. 24 View FIGURES 13 – 24 , 25 View FIGURES 25 – 36 ). The AMPs are strongly clubbed and without evident openings ( Figs. 24 View FIGURES 13 – 24 , 25 View FIGURES 25 – 36 ). Under higher magnification, the surface of those processes is irregular but not spongy ( Fig. 25 View FIGURES 25 – 36 ).
