Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Taylor & Glover (2005) explained that as the original description was vague and could apply to several Anodontia species and the so called type specimen added later, there is considerable confusion as to which Anodontia species this name applies. They recommended abandonment of the name.  [details]
