status

 

Subgenus Latrunculia Du Bocage, 1869  

Definition. Latrunculia   species in which the anisodiscorhabd microscleres have three whorls of spines around the shaft, a basal whorl above the manubrium, and two whorls of projections, the median and subsidiary whorls, located closer to the apical whorl than to the manubrium (hence the use of the prefix aniso- in anisodiscorhabd). The basal whorl is clearly separated from the manubrium in most species but armours the manubrium in others, making the distinction from the manubrium more difficult ( Samaai et al., 2006).
