Conus argillicola (Eichwald, 1830)


Descrizione e caratteristiche:

 

E’ una conchiglia di dimensioni medie, la cui spira č moderatamente alta e dal profilo concavo. Le spire sono convesse e lisce, la spalla č angolata, l’ultimo giro č conico e convesso, con linee incise nella parte anteriore. Rispetto al Conus fuscocingulatus la spalla č piů angolata e la spira č piů bassa.

Conus argillicola (Eichwald, 1830)

 

 

Although Hall (1966) synonymized this species with Conus vindobonensis Hoernes & Auinger, 1879, the two taxa are not very similar. Especially the elongate last whorl and the long siphonal canal exclude conspecificity with Conus s.l. vindobonensis. Moreover, the spiral cords on the spire whorls of C. s.l. vindobonensis are always much weaker. Bałuk (1997) treated Conus argillicola as a subjective junior synonym of Conus pyrula Brocchi, 1814. The Pliocene Lautoconus pyrula, however, lacks spiral cords, is broader, and has rounded shoulders and very prominent and broad spiral cords on the base. The illustration of Eichwald (1852) does not correspond unambiguously to any other Paratethyan and Mediterranean species and the status of Conus argillicola remains unclear without observation of type specimens or new material (5).
