On the Occurance of Strombina Cyphonotus and Strombina Lessepsiana in the Dominican Republic

Bernard Landau


In the description of Strombina lessepsiana (Brown and Pilsbry, 1911, p. 352, pl. 25, figs. 11, 12) the authors compared their new species from the Gatun Formahon with two as-yet undescribed species in the Gabb Collection from Santo Domingo. In order to demonstrate the relationship between these three species, in an extended footnote (Brown and Pilsbry, 1911, pp. 352353) they published descriptions of these two new species extracted from "Johnson and Pilsbry's [i.e., Pilsbry and Johnson, 1917] report on Gabb's Santo Domingo fossils (not yet published)."
