Used as valid name by Wenz (1929: 2780), but obviously not intended as species-group name by Férussac (1823: 150, pl. 7, fig. 4). The name became nevertheless available from Pallary (1916) who treated it as valid species-group name and associated it with an illustration in Férussac (1823: pl. 7, fig. 4). See introduction for a detailed discussion about the names used by Férussac (1823).
