The intrageneric shell variability of Phaenomenella is high and a few general characters can be mentioned – “broader than high protoconch with flattened tip and (…) a rather sharp angulation just above the suture. The upper teleoconch whorls are shouldered, a shape which is accentuated by the axial knobs or ribs, or have the appearance of being by the presence of obviously convex axial ribs” ( Fraussen & Stahlschmidt 2013: 82). Radula with a tricuspid central tooth with rectangular base and laterals with 3 or 4 cusps. Anterior foregut with well-defined valve of Leiblein and large gland of Leiblein.
