Catalog entries: Tholospira cervicornis
Original description: Cortical shell covered with numerous (forty to fifty or more) branched radial spines; each spine antler-shaped, about as long as the medullary Larnacilla-shell, with eight to twelve dichotomous branches (similar to Cromyodrymus abietinus, Pl. 30, fig. 6). Perimeter of the lateral plane elliptical, one and a third times as long as broad. Four internal kidney-shaped gates, as in Tetrapyle. Both wings of the sagittal girdle turn round one another in one and a half to two double spiral turns.
Remarks on original description: Haeckel listed Tholospira cervicornis under the subgeneric name Tholospironium, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.[comment from RadWorld database]
