Extra details from original publication
Remarks: This species is very similar to one figured by Mrs. Plummer from the Midway of Texas as G. pseudo-bulloides. It differs in having a less lobate periphery and in being more planospirally coiled. Due to its small size, it is often overlooked in the Guayabal. It is named in honor of Mr. John H. Wilson, Geologist of the Huasteca Petroleum Company, Tampico, Mexico.
