Red List Criteria
Although this species has a restricted range, since it occurs in deep water it will normally only be threatened (together with its habitat) by trawling and/or dredging where it is recovered as fishing bycatch. It is unknown as to whether this is placing the species at risk.
The normal length of this species is between 15 and 25 mm. The body whorl is conical in shape. The spire is low, concave in profil. Sutural ramps are flat in cross section. The protoconch is relatively swollen and brown colored.
