- Discartemon sangkarensis – Benthem Jutting 1959: 168–170, fig. 10. Type locality: Batu Sangkar, near Pajakombo, Padang Highlands, Indonesia. Richardson 1988: 184. Marwoto 2008: 191.
Holotype ZMA 3.59.052 (Fig. 9C). Paratypes: ZMA 3.59.053 (1 shell), ZMA 3.59.054 (4 shells), and ZMA 3.59.057 (9 shells).
Shell globose-heliciform, semi-transparent, with a conical spire and distinct suture. Shell surface glossy with fine transverse ridges; following whorls regularly coiled. Last whorl rounded and regularly expanded; umbilicus widely open and deep. Aperture triangular, with sinulus; peristome thickened, expanded and reflected. Apertural dentition of only one parietal lamella (Fig. 9C).
Discartemon sangkarensis differs from Discartemon roebeleni in having a more inflated last whorl, a triangular aperture, in having a sinulus, and the apertural dentition of only one parietal lamella. Compared with Discartemon lemyrei and Discartemon vandermeermohri, Discartemon sangkarensis differs in having a sinulus. Also, Discartemon lemyrei has a relatively larger shell and narrow umbilicus, while Discartemon vandermeermohri has a small basal lamella. Discartemon sangkarensis differs from Discartemon collingei in having a higher spire, the last whorl rounded, more inflated and regularly coiled, and in having a sinulus, a triangular aperture, and only one parietal lamella. Also, Discartemon collingei is slightly axially deflected.
