Caption

Turritella (Haustator) badensis is a genus of marine gastropod molluscs in the family Turritellidae. They are slender, spirally coiled, conical sea snails with a small lid (operculum) closing and opening the mouth. The name Turritella derives from the Latin word turritus, meaning turreted or towered. The slab with fossils in this sample measures 40 cm across and is from Miocene deposits near Weitendorf in Austria.
