Notes
Agüera García & Oliver, 2008 regarding neotype designation: The original shell described by Dunker could not be located. It was stated by Dunker (1867) to be part of the Museum Godeffroy and this collection was largely incorporated into the Zoological Museum, University of Hamburg. It is likely that along with much of the dry molluscan collection, the type was destroyed during World War II. The collections in the Zoological Museum, Berlin, and The Natural History Museum, London, were also checked because Dunker types are also located in these museums. With the lack of material, a neotype designation is made here. This course of action is taken because the original figure (Fig. 8a) clearly shows the fine radial sculpture and broad periostracal bristles typical of the new material at hand, giving confidence to the application of the name B. grayana.
