Notes
"Caziot 1908 established a new gastropod name Pomatias simrothi and attributed the name to Pollonera. The description was partly by Pollonera (the main description) and partly by Caziot (who added only some descriptive remarks). The name must be attributed to Caziot because Caziot's remarks alone would also have made the name available" The provenance of this collection is unknown, it was acquired from an anonymous source in England by the shell dealer A. Moncur and then sold to Glasgow City Museum in the 1980's
