Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAdditional information Type locality "Off Ganjam coast, eastern India"; Regularly found off the coasts of Somalia. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorPublication date Varhaeghe & Poppe (2000:16) list this species with authority "E. A. Smith, 1906". However, in the 1906 continuation of his reports, Smith does not mention this species, only Pirula ficoides Lamarck. The actual description took place in an earlier report, published in 1894, also in the Annals and Magazine of Natural History. As Verhaeghe & Poppe list both references in the Bibliography list, it is here assumed that this is a mere confusion between the two biobliographic references. [details]
