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 implicitly based on multiple specimens: “Coloration jaunâtre et devenant habituellement pourprée près de la suture”. Fischer-Piette (1950: 149) noted the illustration of Crosse and listed a “ Holotype ” (no doubt the specimen illustrated by Crosse, though this was not stated explicitly). Johnson (1994: 10) simply referenced Fischer-Piette’s statement, while also noting an additional “ paratype ” ( MCZ 45191 View Materials ). Neither statement constitutes a lectotype designation (see introductory text regarding lectotypes). The single MNHN specimen matches Crosse’s illustration reasonably well, and a label of the collection of the Journal de Conchyliologie, associated with the specimen and written at the time of Fischer-Piette, says “ Holotype ”, and this and two other labels state that it is the figured specimen, one indicating that it was received from Pease in 1869. It is here designated as the lectotype.
