Euchitonia sp. Benson, 1983

Description - Add description

Benson, 1983, p. 503:

Remarks. This species(?) is distinguished by: its large size; its circular central structure consisting of five to seven concentric, latticed, discoidal shells; its two similar arms which do not bend toward one another; and, in fully developed tests, a patagium with thickened margins, convex outward between the arms, presenting the appearance of a shield. It is clearly not the same as E. mülleri (=E. furcata) of Nigrini (1967); therefore, I have designated it as Euchitonia sp.
