( Fig. 5G View FIG )

Endodonta (Thaumatodon) henshawi Ancey, 1904b: 66 , pl. 5, figs 15, 16.

CURRENT TAXONOMIC STATUS. — Endodontidae , Cookeconcha Solem, 1976 . Valid species.

TYPE MATERIAL. — Syntypes MNHN IM-2000-9654 (5 spms; Fig. 5G View FIG ) .

TYPE LOCALITY. — “Palihoukapapa, on the Hamakua slope of Mauna Kea, Kawaii [Hawaii], an elevation of 4,000 feet ” (from the introduction to the paper).

REMARKS

Although the original description stated that this species seemed to be abundant, the actual description was not explicitly based on multiple syntypes, but neither does it imply that it was based on a only a single specimen. Even though the paper was published in 1904, according to the labels the specimens were not sent by Ancey until 1907, although all these old labels say “cotypes”. No lectotype is here selected, pending further research in other museums (BPBM, IRSNB) holding type or possible type material ( Wood & Gallichan 2008: 51).
