From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNeotype Schmidt's (1862) description and figure (pl. VII fig. 1) leave no doubt that his original material contained diplasters. The only material left with a label in Schmidt's handwriting is a slide in the Natural History Museum in London (no extant material in LMJG), under reg.nr. 1867.3.11.16A. It does not contain diplasters and belongs to Spirastrella cunctatrix. The slide clearly does not belong to the original type material and thus the type must be considered lost, hence a neotype was necessary. The neotype was collected in the same marine ecoregion as the original material (Lesina in Croatia).  [details]
