Original Description

Variation of the species Ticinella bejaouaensis Sigal displays considerable variation. In typical forms, the number of chambers in the last whorl varies from eight to nine. However, neanic forms may only have seven or even six chambers in the last whorl. Such neanic forms are transitional between Hedbergella trocoidea (Gandolfi) and T. bejaouaensis Sigal. The specific designation of these forms may be based on the number of chambers in the last whorl. Some of these forms are here illustrated on plate 21, figures 9-11 and 14-16 as Ticinella bejaouaensis transitoria, n. subsp
