status

 

Bulimus meleagris Pfeiffer, 1853   Figs 75D-F View Figure 75 , L37ii View Figure L37

Bulimus meleagris   Pfeiffer 1853b: 257; 1853d: 382; Pfeiffer 1854 in Küster and Pfeiffer 1840-1865: 81, pl. 21 figs 24-25.

Type locality.

"Andibus Novae Granadae".

Label.

"Andes N. Granada", taxon label in Pfeiffer’s handwriting. M.C. label style I.

Dimensions.

"Long. 31, diam. 14 mill."; figured specimen herein H 31.3, D 16.0, W 5.0.

Type material.

NHMUK 20100583, lectotype and one paralectotype (Cuming coll.).

Remarks.

One of the specimens corresponds to the original measurements and Pfeiffer’s figure, and is here designated lectotype (design. n.). The paralectotype is subadult. Upon re-examining these specimens, it is clear that the specimens referred to by Breure (1978: 219, pl. 7 fig. 18) are not this species. If the type locality is correct, this species might be expected in southern Colombia or the adjacent region in Ecuador.

Current systematic position.
