“Genus Aeneator Finlay, 1927
Type (OD) Verconella marshalli Murdoch, 1924
(= Ellicea Finlay, 1928. Type (OD) Siphonalia orbita Hutton, 1885)
Shell fusiform, like a miniature Penion, but with a broad shallow subsutural sinus, usually a parietal tubercle, and a radula more akin to that of Buccinulum. It is now found impossible to draw a hard and fast line between Aeneator and Ellicea, the latter differing only in having stronger spiral sculpture. New Zealand, upper Miocene to Recent.”
