This is Dorsoplicathoris dorsoplicata from the Coronatum zone of the Callovian stage of the Jurassic, from near Villequiers, Cher department, France. It has a typical terebratulid shape and features, oval and with a large foramen on the umbo. The anterior margin of the shell is only slightly curved, meeting the side margins at an obtuse angle. That meet point is expressed as a shallow ridge along the surface of the valves pointing back towards the foramen.
