Adites curvata (holotype)
(x 1.38)

7-8mm. The facies is as in bizonoides, as are the processes to the saccular margin of the valves. The cornuti are similarly proportioned to those of bizonoides but the larger two are more regular, not flattened, the most basal strongly curved. The distal saccular process has a crest of moderate, curved spines reflexed back round its margin.
