Description - Add description

Dictyophimus(?) archipilium
Differs from D. hirundo by the smaller cephalic, thoracic, and abdominal dimensions. The main shell construction is the same. Only the apical horn is weak, but that characteristic is also known for some races of D. hirundo (Petrushevskaya and Kozlova, 1972). The pores in D. archipilium are arranged in transverse rows similar to Archipilium species. Holotype No. 62248 in the collection of Marine Hydrobiology. The description is based on specimens from Site 278. Named after the genus Archipilium.
