On Haliotinella Patinaria (Gastropoda: Naticidae)
Abstract:A female specimen of Haliotinella patinaria Guppy, 1876, 42 mm long, was collected in Biscayne Bay, Florida, burrowing in mud. Since the discovery of the type-species, H. montrouzieri Souverbie, 1875, no more than the shells of Haliotinella were known. Examination of the additional systematically useful characters provided by this specimen confirms the view of Souverbie, who provisionally placed Haliotinella in the vicinity of Sinum.
