Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Keep (1887: 65) listed this nominal species as "Alvania aequisculpta Crp", but Carpenter did not describe this species. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This and other Western American species were attributed to Alvinia Monterosato, 1884, following Keen (1971); nevertheless it is not proved to be more related to the Mediterranean type species Alvania weinkauffi Weinkauff, 1868 than to other Alvania s.l. and is therefore retained in Alvania.  [details]
