COPIED FROM AGASSIZ: "Large, new species, fourteen inches in diameter, drawn by Mr. J. Drayton during the U.S. Exploring Expedition. It has a general resemblance to C. mosaicus, and the figure before me shows the reticulation of the arms represented by Quoy and Gaimard, to be small bunches of marginal lobes. Slaty colored, rim transparent, with radiating white lines;- surface of the disk crenulate, dotted near the margin.- Illiware Lake ( J. Drayton)."
