Notes
Harasewych et al. 2007 state that Maynard did not base his description on one specimen, and therefore that all material examined can be classed as part of a syntype series (765 specimens in total). They go on to designate a lectotype lot, MCZ 76190 and to state that all of the other specimens can be considered paralectotypes including MCZ 76191, MCZ 118213 and USNM 419943 (200 specimens) and now also the Leeds specimens. Leeds material does not have a Maynard label but their database states that it is is from his collection and is also ex. Salisbury. There is an old label stating paratypes and it is from the exact type locality.
