INDONESIA • 1 dd; S Sulawesi, about 37 km (20 nautic miles) NW of Makassar, Tengga Tengga Reef ; 4°52′62″ S, 119°07′65″ E; depth 37 m; F. Lorenz leg.; Oct. 2002; KF 4863 .


The single, subadult shell we studied looks like a slender S. nigricostata gen. et comb. nov. but with the protoconch of S. egregia gen. et comb. nov. It differs from S. nigricostata gen. et comb. nov. by its larger protoconch and the slenderer shell. It differs from S. egregia gen. et comb. nov. by the different shape, sculpture and entirely different colour pattern.
