Catalog entries: Sethoconus dogieli



Skeleton consisting of two segments. First segment, "cephalis," considerably smaller than second. "Cephalis" with numerous small pores; often these are filled with skeletal substance leaving on surface only small depressions — honeycomb. First segment distinctly demarcated from second. Upper part of second chamber conical, with smaller pores than in cylindrical lower part. Pores gradually enlarging towards bottom of shell; they are irregularly polygonal. Many supplementary needles and spines on surface of shell. Internal skeleton composed of basic elements (needles MB, A, Vert, D, Lr and Li), all of them comparatively slender and weakly marked. Externally needles A and Vert forming two horns on "cephalis," needles D, Li and Lr directed obliquely downwards, pass through the wall of the second segment, but not forming stout processes of the shell and not always well marked, particularly when concealed among the numerous supplementary needles. Dimensions: length of first segment about 35 µ, width about 40 µ, length of second segment 150 µ and more, width 100 — 120 µ.
