Redescription of Spirodentalium Walcott (Gastropoda: Late Cambrian) from Wisconsin

  • Ellis L. Yochelson (a1)

Spirodentalium Walcott, 1890, was originally described as a scaphopod. A reinterpretation of the type lot suggests that its overall shape is that of an open-coiled gastropod. If so, this is probably the earliest known open-coiled form and it is sinistral in coiling direction.
