Scissurella rota Yaron, 1983  

Scissurella rota Yaron, 1983 a: 268   , pl. 3. Herbert, 1986: 622, figs 7, 25–27. Bosch et al., 1995: 28, fig. 4. Geiger, 2012: 296, figs 185–190, pls. 2 F, 3 A (further references). Type loc.: Abulat Is., southern Red Sea; holotype in MNHN.

Distribution. Central and western Indian Ocean south to E. Cape (Port Alfred) (Geiger 2012); beach-drift to 60 m (living LST– 26 m).

Notes. Geiger (2012) recorded Scissurella reticulata Philippi, 1853   from South Africa based on literature records of S. rota (Herbert 1986)   . However, he listed the same records under S. rota   . The coarse sculpture of the specimens concerned (Herbert 1986: figs 25–27) clearly points to them being referable to S. rota   . S. reticulata   is not currently known to occur in South Africa.
