Original Description

Shell conical with eight or more articulations, head rounded and bearing along curved setiform proeess.

Length of shell 6m. Length of setula 5m to 6m.

Editors' Notes
The micro-unit employed by Bailey is 1/1000 of an English inch expressed in integers and fractions.

\In the Atlantic soundings is found a species closely resembling this, except that it has not been seen with the setiform process. I have called it C. tritonis.\"
