While all the other genera have elongate and more or less slender shells, this genus comprises discoid shells. The distribution of the species now known is on both the west and east slopes of the Sierra Madre Oriental in northern Mexico.

Others are open access but charge their authors a fee, which is usually paid by their employer (museum or university). Private organisations who publish a journal – like The Veliger – probably cannot afford to make it open access without blowing up the journal as it is. Someone has to pay the costs…; be realistic.</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><blockquote type="cite"> <div style="width: 600px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 18px;" class="PosterousEmail"></div></div></body></html>
