Citation: Androspyris huxleyi (Haeckel) Goll 1980
Rank: species
Basionym: Lamprospyris huxleyi
Taxonomic discussion: (Haeckel)1887; Goll 1980; Alexandrovich 1989 (ODP 111 SR) pl.2 fig.10

Catalog entries: Lamprospyris huxleyi

Original description: Shell ovate, spiny, with two slight annular transverse strictures; their length equal to one and a half times the breadth, and up to seven times the length of the ring. Apical horn quite included by the loose lattice-work of the large conical cupola, which is as long as the cephalis and thorax together. The three slender feet are also included in the lattice-work and only one-third as long as the shell, nearly vertical. Lattice-work much denser than in the two preceding species.
Remarks on original description: Description: The \two preceding species" refers to Lamprospyris darwinii and Lamprospyris lyellii in Haeckel, 1887a."[comment from RadWorld database]
