Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Lorenz and Hubert (2000) consider it a subspecies of Erosaria granulata [Nucleolaria granulata], which is considered by many authors as endemic to Hawaii. Meyer (2003, 2004) did not sample this taxon in his molecular phylogeny of the Cypraeaidae, therefore the phylogenetic affinities of cassiaui and granulata remain uncertain. Until more information becomes available, this taxonomic editor (F. Moretzsohn) considers cassiaui as valid. [details]
