Brief SummaryRead full entry
This is the second largest species (to 220 mm body length) among the six species of Carinaria. The proboscis and trunk are large, due to the presence of a thick cutis layer. The shell is broadly triangular in side view and shares with C. challengeri the lowest shell height to basal length ratio (0.5). The keel is moderately low, and increases in height gradually with increasing proximity to the shell aperture. The tail is moderately small, with a low dorsal crest.
