Notes
Harasewych et al. 2007 state that the name was first published as a nomen nudum in Maynard, 1924? [undated] 'Catalogue of specimens of the family Cerionidae for sale by Charles J. Maynard containing many new species'. West Newton, Massachusetts: published privately. 8 unnumbered pp. (for comments see that publication, p. 516). Harasewych et al. 2007 state that Maynard did not base his description on one specimen, and therefore that all material examined is classed as part of the type series (3528 specimens in total). They go on to designate a lectotype lot from MCZ (MCZ 76343) and state that all of the remaining 3527 syntypes can be considered paralectotypes including MCZ 76342 and USNM 420137, and now also the Leeds specimen. Leeds material does not have a Maynard label, but is ex. Liverpool, where some of Maynard's material went. Leeds database states that this specimen is ex. Maynard and from the Crowley collection. There is a more modern label stating paratype and it is from the type locality.
