Neithea texana var elongata

No perfect shells of this species had yet to be found at the time of when H.T. Kniker had been collecting specimens.  The ribs are flattened on top and every third one is raised and somewhat rounded at the top.  These are found in the lower division of the Buda Limestone, Austin; and Del Rio Clay, Austin and San Marcos, Texas.
