A small species of Hustedia with many small rib-like plications of the shell.

Viewer comments:

This species of Hustedia is very similar to the common North American
Pennsylvanian species Hustedia mormoni (Marcou), which has 15-16
rib-like plications of the shell. Hustedia mormoni (Marcou) is described
in Dunbar & Condra (1932).
