REMARKS

The original description was based on more than one specimen, as two specimens were illustrated and the colour was described as being yellow or brown and the shells as indifferently dextral or sinistral. Fischer-Piette (1950: 71) noted the two specimens figured as being in the collection of the Journal de Conchyliologie but did not refer to either as type material. Johnson (1994: 27) simply referenced Fischer- Piette’s statement, treating the two figured specimens as syntypes, while also noting additional syntypes (MCZ 159563, MCZ 161636). The original MNHN lot consisted of two intact specimens (a third specimen was represented only by a broken apertural fragment). The two intact specimens, although paler in colour (perhaps faded), match the original illustrations well, one with a brown band ( Pease 1868: pl. 14, fig. 7) and one without (fig. 7a), and a label of the collection of the Journal de Conchyliologie, associated with the original lot and written at the time of Fischer-Piette, indicates that they are the specimens figured by Pease. The sinistral specimen with the brown band, as described by Pease (1868: 345), is here separated from the original lot and designated as the lectotype; the other illustrated specimen and the fragment are paralectotypes.
