WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 8 months ago

ABSTRACT – A new species of fossil Cypraeidae – Notocypraea goudeyi sp. nov. – hitherto overlooked, is described from the Bioclastic limestones of the Roe Plains, Madura district, Western Australia. The new species differs from all other fossil and recent taxa of the endemic genus Notocypraea Schilder, 1925 by the columellar denticles extending onto the ventrum.
