Turcica is a genus of sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Chilodontidae.

Contents

Kano et al. (2009) have argued that Turcica belongs in the family Calliotropidae.

Description

The thin, subdiaphanous, imperforate shell has a conoidal shape. The whorls display transverse series of granules, the last rounded on the periphery. The thick columella is spirally twisted posteriorly, ending anteriorly in an obtuse, prominent point. The thin outer lip is simple and acute.

Distribution

The genus ranges on both shores of the Pacific, from California and Australia northward.
