Notes
Possible Syntypes:- ‘Cotypes’ BPBM.18310 2 spec. NMW.1955.158.24125 1 spec. Remarks: Not listed in Johnson (1996). Cowie et al. (1995: 110) remarked ‘Synonym of micans Pfeiffer, teste Hyatt & Pilsbry (1911b: 210).’ Type evidence: The NMW lot has an Ancey label bearing the type locality, but type is not written on it. Geret’s sales list confirms it comes from Ancey’s collection.
