REMARKS

Considered by Pease as a species of “ Hélictères ” (i.e. genus Helicteres , though the formal genus name was not used and it is therefore placed in square brackets above) in the subgenus Leptachatina (see introductory text regarding species of Pease). The original description was not explicitly based on only a single specimen but neither does it imply the existence of syntypes. Fischer-Piette (1950: 149) listed the specimen illustrated by Crosse as “Exemplaire figuré”, not treating it explicitly as a type. Johnson (1994: 26) simply referenced Fischer-Piette’s statement but credited him with having listed the “ Holotype ”, while also noting additional “ paratypes ” (MCZ 142986). Johnson’s treatment did not constitute a lectotype fixation (see introductory text regarding lectotypes). The single specimen is a reasonable match for that illustrated by Crosse (1876: pl. 4, fig. 4), although the white sutural bands in that illustration appear quite exaggerated; the labels associated with the specimen state that it is the specimen illustrated by Crosse and that it was received from Pease in 1869. It is therefore here designated as the lectotype.
