Notes
Coan & Kabat, 2012 state: NHMUK 1912.6.4.1. syntype (figured by G. G. Sowerby II, 1871: 18, pl. 20, fig. 47b); NHMUK 1907.12.30.5, syntype (figured by G. G. Sowerby II, 1871: 18, pl. 20, fig. 47a); Leeds Museum 1957.173.24535, syntype. Higo at al, 2001 illustrates the NHMUK type material and note that these specimens may represent two species. It may be worth considering Hanley's handwritten comment in his catalogue where he references 'the type', this may be evidence that one specimen was originally selected as the type specimen. For now, all of the type lots are considered figured syntypes (NHM) and syntype (Leeds). Leeds specimen has a Hanley label, no type mentioned or locality. A subsequent modern label from the NHM states 'China?'. That label states: "BM(NH) holds figd. syntype. This spec. may be another syntype."
