sandwichiensis Souleyet, 1852 , Auricula

( Fig. 5F View FIG )

Auricula sandwichiensis Souleyet, 1852: 524 , pl. 29, figs 29-32.

CURRENT TAXONOMIC STATUS. — Cassidulinae , Allochroa bronnii ( Philippi, 1846) , synonym.

TYPE MATERIAL. — Lectotype (here designated) MNHN IM-2000- 30849 (ex MNHN IM-2000-5115); paralectotypes: MNHN IM- 2000-5115 (4 spms).

TYPE LOCALITY. — “îles Sandwich”.

REMARKS

The five specimens in the single original lot range widely in size. The largest shell is a precise match in size and shape for Souleyet’s fig. 32 (presumed life-size shell) and matches the larger, more detailed fig. 31 in appearance. Its height and width (11.5 mm, 6.7 mm) closely match Souleyet’s given dimensions (12 mm, 7 mm). This largest specimen is therefore here designated as the lectotype; the other four specimens are paralectotypes.
