Notes
A lectotype was designated by Nantarat et. al, 2014 in the NHM (NHMUK 1936.15.22). Original citation states: 'A white-lipped variety also occurs which is otherwise indistinguishable from the type'. Nantarat et al., 2015 state: 'a range of shell dimensions where given in the original citation, thus indicating that more than one specimen was used for the type description. Preston mentions a “white-lipped variety” that was included in the type series but which could not be located in the NHM collections. The specimen 1936.4.15.22 is the one figured in the original description and is designated as the lectotype'. Leeds material has a Pain label stating paratype, they are Connolly ex. auct., and are from the type locality. Specimen has a Salisbury label with it (identified by handwriting).
