Comprehensive DescriptionRead full entry
“Genus ACTINOLEUCA n. gen.
High conical shells with straight sides and subcentral apex. Finely and evenly ribbed. Texture of shell porcellaneous throughout like that of Radiacmea. In the radula of A. campbelli the lateral teeth are in a transverse row posterior to the centrals. Type: Patella campbelli Filhol.
The species here associated form a well-defined and distinct group approaching Radiacmea in shell-characters and NotoacImea in the disposition of the teeth of the radula. One is a deep-water form whose animal has not yet been described, another is a littoral species, the third is an Oligocene fossil.”
