Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Augener's types (ZMH V 1892) show talons as figured by ten Hove (1973: 13), and definitely belong to Pomatoleios kraussii. The locality is given as ? Campeche Bay, and correctly so, since P. kraussii has not yet been reported from the Caribbean, being an Indo-West-Pacific taxon, lessepsian migrant to the Mediterranean. However, Augener's 1927 specimens from Curacao (ZMA V.Pol. 1175) are Vermetidae! [details]
