Description

provided by NMNH Antarctic Invertebrates

Lissotesta strebeli (Thiele, 1912) (Fig. 164)

Submargarita strebeli Thiele, 1912: 188, pl. 11, figs 13,14; Powell, 1960: 132; Arnaud, 1972: 117; Egorova, 1982: 17, figs 87,88.

Lissotesta strebeli: Dell, 1972b: 33.

MATERIAL EXAMINED: TAE Stn 1; NZOI Stns A449, A470; Eltanin Stns 418, 1003, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2005, 2014; USNM, 72°05.8'S, 172°15.2'E, 392 m; USNM, 72°8'S, 172°10'E, 433 m.

DISTRIBUTION: Described by Thiele from Gauss Station (89°E), this species has been recorded only once subsequently, from 139°E (170-180 m) by Arnaud (1972). It is not uncommon in fine sediments in the Ross Sea in 342­-870 m.

REMARKS: On the whole the Ross Sea specimens referred to L. strebeli have the spirals on the base much more closely confined to the umbilical area than is shown in Thiele's figure of the type.”
