Original Description

Artostrobiid having four segments, ovate to spindle-shaped; mouth constricted, no terminal feet; vertical tube flared (duck-billed *) ; apical horn present.

*In ""duck-billed"" vertical tube opening is, in fact, circular and the ""duck-bill"" effect is produced by additional skeletal material on the outer edge of the tube.



The generic name Siphostichartus is derived from three words: siphon (Greek. masculine) meaning pipe, in reference to the vertical tube; stichos (Greek, masculine) meaning line, in reference to the transverse pore rows; and artus (Latin, masculine) meanin
