Taxonomy The name Daronia has for a long time been used to include small, planispirally coiled, marine species. Daronia was established as a subgenus of Cyclostrema with Cyclostrema spirula A. Adams, 1850, as type species by monotypy. The holotype was said to have been found «on the sands in one of the Philippine Islands» (label) and «in the Philippine Islands» (description). Examination (Warén & Bouchet 1988) of the holotype of Cyclostrema (Daronia) spirula revealed that it is a land snail belonging to the family Poteriidae. Furthermore, it is so similar to Buckleyia martinezi (Hidalgo), the type species of this genus, that we do not hesitate to consider it an older synonym of Buckleyia. This genus is restricted to northern South America and it is assumed that as so often is the case in the Cuming collection a confusion of localities has taken place. [details]
