Notes
From Oliver et al. (2020): "Type material: Possible syntypes, 8 shells attached to a brick-red wooden block. “Found on the South Sands, June 1809” in Lyons hand. TENBM 1983.4329/1-5. As Rissoa vitrea det. Anon. 4 separated off as 1983.4329/1–4, 4 damaged shells attached to wood block as 1983.4329/5."; "This taxon is absent from modern databases but was considered to be a junior synonym of Rissoa vitrea (now Hyala vitrea) by both Forbes and Hanley (1853) and Jeffreys (1867). No specimens labelled as Pyramis crystallinus or crystallinus are present but shells of Hyala vitrea are, under TENBM 1983.4329."
