REMARKS

The largest specimen in the original lot, with which a typical black-bordered Férussac label is associated, closely matches the illustrations of Deshayes (1851: pl. 155, figs 14, 15), notwithstanding the hole in the shell (for stringing it as a necklace or other ornamentation) that is not depicted; it is here selected as the lectotype ( MNHN IM-2000-30839) ; the remaining specimens in the original lot are paralectotypes ( MNHN IM-2000-36736). Labels associated with the other two lots ( MNHN IM-2000-30840, MNHN IM-2012-36735) indicate that the specimens were in the Deshayes collection, and therefore may have been in Férussac’s collection. They are here considered possible paralectotypes .
