Notes
Almost impossible to tell if specimen matches fig. 468 in Thesaurus Conchyliorum - the shell is tiny and faded, although is a long mark left of aperture that looks to match illustration. Label in Marrat's writing 'O. micula Alexandria'. Label in Tomlin's writing 'Type of [Olivella] micula M. + orig of f. 468. The loc 'Alexandria' is of course an error: there is no Oliva or Olivella in the Medn [Mediterranean]. It is an Indian OCean species. I have it from Singapore.'
