Genus Phlycticeras

Schweigert & Dietze, 1998, consider Strigoceras and Oecoptychius as a dimorphic pair and group them together into one species : Phlycticeras.

Macroconch Phlycticeras M (or Strigoceras) has a characteristic shell with triangular crenellated keel and spiral ornamentation, supplemented by falcate ribbing. It is oxycone and narrowly umbilicated. Phlycticeras m (or Oecoptychius), is provided with huge spatulated lappets.
