Sykes clearly stated that this taxon was described based on a single specimen collected by Mrs. Broun. The original description included an illustration and a set of shell measurements. The NHM collections contain a Sykes type lot that has an original label stating “Type”, and so we recognise this single illustrated specimen as the holotype fixed by monotypy.
