Notes
Lectotype designated in Harasewych et al. 2007: The original description did not distinguish among the 23,000 specimens examined. There was no indication in this publication to associate a single specimen with the term 'type'. Thus there is no holotype for this taxon, and the species is based on 23,000 syntypes...Lot MCZ 76008 contains 278 specimens labelled 'paratypes'. (MCZ76008) is here designated to provide an objective standard of reference for this species-group taxon. The remaining 277 specimens were recatalogued as MCZ 352331. These and all other syntypes, including USNM 419996 (1,500 specimens), become paralectotypes. Leeds specimens are ex. Salisbury, ex Maynard, with one other label (unidentified handwriting) stating paratypes. They are from the type locality. Based on this evidence, they are paralectotypes.
