Homotoma anceps Eichwald—Hidalgo 1917  (p. 354).

Teretia anceps (Eichwald)  — Nordsieck 1968 (p. 179, pl. 30, fig. 94.80).

Teretia anceps (Eichwald, 1830)  — Nordsieck 1977 (p. 61, pl. 19, fig. 161).

Teretia teres ( Forbes, 1844)  — Bouchet & Warén 1980 (p. 81, figs. 168, 229); Giribet & Peñas 1997 (fig. 69).

Teretia teres ( Reeve, 1844)  — Fretter & Graham 1984 (p. 543, figs. 373–374); Poppe & Goto 1991 (p. 168, pl. 35, fig. 7); Cossignani et al. 1992 (fig. 182); Repetto et al. 2005 (p. 221, top right fig.); Beck et al. 2006 (p. 80, bottom fig.); De Frias Martins et al. 2009 (p. 65, figs. 246–247). 

Diagnostic characters. Fusiform shell; oval aperture; moderately long, wide and twisted siphonal canal; deep Ushaped anal sinus; sharp spiral cords increasing in number by intercalation during growth; most prominent cord marking periphery of whorls; minute granulation in interspaces between spirals. Protoconch: conical; 4.5 whorls; diameter about 540 µm (protoconch I: 200 µm); height about 800 µm; first 1.3 whorls (protoconch I) with spirally connected T-shaped granules; subsequent whorls (protoconch II) with an oblique reticulate pattern of sinuous, collabral axial riblets and non-collabral prosocline riblets; the latter riblets absent in the adapical fourth, where only collabral riblets are present; transition to the teleoconch marked by a sinusigera.

Remarks. Teretia anceps (Eichwald, 1830)  is a Miocene fossil. According to Bouchet & Warén (1980), its Recent citations actually refer to Teretia teres  .

Occurrence. Box-corer samples BC04 (2 specimens), BC11 (1), BC72 (4); cores BC04 (1), BC05 (6), BC21 (2), BC51 (4). Maximum height: 3.5 mm.

Distribution and habitat. Teretia teres  is distributed from Scandinavian waters to Angola, the Canaries, the Azores and the Mediterranean; it dwells on sand and sandy mud bottoms in the 30–1385 m bathymetric interval ( Bouchet & Warén 1980; Fretter & Graham 1984; Poppe & Goto 1991; Pons-Moyà & Pons 1999).

Fossil record. Pliocene and Pleistocene of Italy ( Monterosato 1872; Di Geronimo & La Perna 1997; Tabanelli 2008).
