Diagnostic characters. Oval shell; rounded anterior side; long and truncate posterior rostrum; right valve hinge with a strong posterior lateral tooth; radial ridge from the beaks to the ventral angle of the rostrum; rather evenly spaced commarginal lamellae, vanishing on the umbonal area and over the rostrum. Prodissoconch: shell type ST- 2D; length about 130 µm; ellipsoidal outline; convex profile; P-1 surface finely granulated; P-1/P-2 boundary illdefined; rim-like P-2; transition to the nepioconch well marked.

Remarks. G.O. Sars (1878, p. 88) erroneously considered the valid species Neaera lamellosa M. Sars   as conspecific with Neaera jugosa S. Wood. Actually   , Cuspidaria jugosa (Wood S.V., 1857)   , although subsequently put in synonymy of C. lamellosa   by some authors (e.g. Nordsieck 1969), appears to be a different species, as Wood (1857: p. 272) described it as possessing “eight to ten rounded ridges, with depressions or sulci between them of about the same breadth”.

Occurrence. Box-corer samples BC05 (2 specimens), BC66 (1), BC72 (6); core BC72 (2). Maximum length: 3.5 mm.

Distribution and habitat. The species is found at outer shelf depths in Norway waters, and at deeper settings (down to 1100 m) along both the Atlantic margins; it is an infaunal burrower inhabiting soft bottoms (Dall 1889[b]; Thomsen & Vorren 1986; Buhl-Mortensen & Høisaeter 1993; Oliver et al. 2016).

Fossil record. Holocene of Norway ( Thomsen & Vorren 1986).
