Identification The true identity of this species is poorly known, and current research status points towards synonymy with Turritella communis Risso, 1826 over which it would take precedence should that be the case.
Reeve (1849, pl. 7, sp. 35) argued that the name was attributed by Lamarck based on "a worn and very obscure specimen", yet still assimilates to it the Turbo terebra of the Fauna Svecica (not of Linnaeus, 1758 Sys. Nat. 10th Ed.), the Turritella linnei of Deshayes, 1833, as well as Turritella communis Risso, 1826 and the Turritella ungulina as listed by Deshayes (not of Linnaeus). [details]
