Catalog entries: Lithomitra elizabethae
Original description: Shell small, smooth, with two strictures, generally shaped like a finger-cot and with roughly toothed margin; shell divided into three joints or segments by two horizontal strictures, the apical segment hemispherical (approximately 0.2 total length, distally somewhat flattened, basally limited by a sharp change in length), its sides rather strongly bulging especially in the middle, a little asymmetrical; third segment nearly cylindrical (about the same length as the one above it), its midregion somewhat bulging; apical segment without pores, or at the very most with a single row, perhaps, around the base, and these exceedingly small, middle segment with four tiers of pores, approximately sixteen pores in a row, uniform, oval, well-spaced, double-rimmed, third segment with three tiers of pores, sixteen or more in a row, rows not perfectly horizontal, perhaps 5° off horizontal, pores of different sizes, some much larger than others, ovoidal, elongate, droplet-shaped, or even irregular, those of the apertural row generally smaller and more irregular than others, the apical two rows closer together, the marginal row rather near the aperture; wall comparatively thick, very dark, closely following the shell contour and not modified at the strictures, surface without especial ornamentation, smooth; apertural rim ragged, with small, irregularly shaped, differently sized projections.
