Description

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.”
