Lesquereusia extranea Awerintzew, 1906
Diagnosis: Generally, the test resembles that of L. epistomium, but it also presents intermediate characters between those of the genera Lesquereusia and Pontigulasia; its shape is regularly lengthened, its diameter decreases towards the neck which is erected. The aperture of the pseudostome is an extension of the opening of the test, thus the spiral shape is greatly attenuated. The covering of the test is composed of short and thick vermiculated elements.
