Characterization

Shell H/L approximately 0.79 (n 10, min 0.75, max 0.83), W/H approx. 0.59(n 10, min 0.53, max 0.63). Posterior part of the hinge plate shorter than anterior one. Width of both the anterior and posterior rows of teeth occupies nearly half of the width of the hinge plate, which is moderately thick for its size (whp/H about 0.11). Prodissoconch smooth, length approximately 176 µm.

Remarks

The radial sculpture on the prodissoconch surface is absent in Microgloma mirmidina, but admittedly it is not always clearly developed in the other species of Microgloma (La Perna 2008[3]). Microgloma mirmidina differs from other species of the genus in the elongated outline, more inflated shells and small hinge plate. In relation to the type material of Microgloma mirmidina figured by La Perna (2008)[3] the Campos Basin material presents a smaller hinge plate. The figured specimens presents H/L ratio of 0.72, 0.76 and 0.83 (La Perna 2008[3] fig 6 B, E, I, respectively). Despite geographical distance between the two records of the present species, these conchological differences are not pronounced enough to affirm they belong to distinct species.
