Notes
F. R. Woodward label (1979-1980) says "specimen marked T selected as lectotype", but the designation was not published. This shell may be that figured by Adams & Angas (1876). A label on the back of the Angas board records "By order of Committee one specimen sent to Sydney Museum [;] 9th Feb. 1888 R. H."
