Cingulina isseli is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Pyramidellidae, the pyrams and their allies.[1][2][3]

This species was originally described by Issel as Eulimella cingulata, a preoccupied name.


The length of the shell measures 3.5 mm. The white shell is a little shining, translucent, and spirally cingulated. The interstices are longitudinally striated. The teleoconch contains nine whorls, the last with 4 cingulations. The base of the shell is smooth.[4]
