Type material.

Syntype NHMUK 1888.12.4.1961 (1 shell; Fig. 2L).


The original description did not include an illustration, and only one set of measurements was given. Gude (1921: 117, 118, fig. 21) re-published the description and figured a shell from Theobald’s collection. There is one shell in the NHM collection purchased from W Theobald, with an original label stating “type” and the collection locality “Bhamo”. This specimen closely matches the measurements given in the original description and is figured herein.
