Notes
The locality and collector information has been inferred from the paper as there is no information present with the specimen. Melvill & Standen, 1895 refer to the fact that they have seen about 20 shells of this species, this specimen should therefore be considered syntypic. It has been listed as such by both Trew, 1987 and McGhie, 2008, although they have suggested that it is the figured specimen. There is no indication on the specimen label that this is the figured material (as there is with other Manchester Museum material) and the original figure is very difficult to interpret. Other type material listed in Trew, 1987 and McGhie, 2008: 7 syntypes NMW.1955.158.00435 syntypes NMV [National Museum Victoria, Melbourne] 13 syntypes EE.7641 33 possible syntypes EE.8060 39 possible syntypes EE.8061
