Name

Discartemon platymorphus Benthem Jutting, 1954Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Discartemon platymorphus Benthem Jutting, 1954: 88-90, fig. 6. Type locality: Gua Nenek, Kelantan, Malaysia. Benthem Jutting 1959[1]: 168. Berry 1965[2]: 28, 29. Richardson 1988[3]: 184. Maassen 2001[4]: 87. Marwoto 2008[5]: 192.

Material examined

Holotype ZMA 3.54.022 (fragmented) (Fig. 6G). Paratype ZMA 3.54.023 (2 shells).

Remarks

The shell is depressed-heliciform with the spire only slightly convex and with a distinct suture. The shell surface has transverse ridges that diminish below the periphery, and varices are present. The following whorls are regularly coiled. Last whorl rounded, regularly expanded; umbilicus widely open and deep. Aperture triangular; peristome discontinuous, thickened, expanded and little reflected; apertural dentition of one parietal and one palatal lamella (Fig. 6H).
Discartemon platymorphus is closely similar to Discartemon plussensis, but that species has a larger shell with a higher spire and lacks a sinulus. Discartemon platymorphus differs from Discartemon epipedis sp. n. by having a lower spire, transverse ridges that diminish below the periphery, a shouldered last whorl, and apertural dentition with four lamellae. Compared with Discartemon stenostomus, Discartemon platymorphus has a lower spire with fine transverse ridges that disappear below the periphery, and a straight parietal lamella and one palatal lamella.
