Cerion blandi Pilsbry and Vanatta, 1896
"Shell solid and strong, cylindric-tapering, the latter 3 whorls approaching equality in diameter, those above slowly tapering to form a long cone, gradually passing into cylindrical portion. Light grayish, with inconspicuous white flecking. Whorls 10, the nepionic 2¼ corneous, smooth, the following 2½ weakly, distinctly ribbed, later 4½ to 5 whorls very sharply and roughly, strongly ribbed, ribs narrow and high, 19 to 22 on each of the two or three later whorls. Umbilicus compressed, rimate, the area behind columellar lip excavated, smooth.
Aperture ovate, white within; peristome reflexed and recurved, not thickened; parietal callus heavy, forming a strong bar across the space between lip ends. Parietal tooth median, moderately strong.
Alt. 27½, diam; 11 ; alt. of aperture 10½ mm.
Alt. 26¾, diam. 11 ; alt. of aperture 10 mm.
Turk's Island, Bahamas.
This species resembles C. glans in general figure and the stout parietal callus; but the ribs are conspicuously different, peculiarly rough and unfinished in appearance, somewhat like C. felis." (Pilsbry & Vanatta, 1896:334).
