Benson, 1966, p. 233: Fig. 17. Euchitonia e1egans (Ehrenberg). Diagram of side view through central region of test illustrating the three concentric rings merging with the two latticed plates on either surface of the test. Rings shown extending into two of the three arms. Central shell completely internal. [Note: On closer examination (2003) the first ôringö around the internal spherical to subspherical shell is another shell enclosing that shell; therefore the central region consists of two concentric shells instead of one as described by Benson, 1966; the second ôringö merges with the latticed plates covering both surfaces of the central part of the test, therefore, is not a true concentric shell.]
