  • according to Hottinger (2006):

MILIOLINE TOOTH - (milioline teeth); one or more inward projections of the inner portion of the chamber-wall into the aperture of milioline species. May be bar-like, spatulate, bifid, or anvil-, T-, Y-, anchor-, spur-, scoop- or spoon-shaped. A single tooth is always present primarily in an interiomarginal position; it may be accompanied by additional teeth that project from the opposite margin of the aperture, from the chamber roof or from the lateral wall.
