Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This is an objective synonym of Trochus pictus Philippi, 1846 (preoccupied by Trochus pictus W. Wood, 1828). The synonymy with Gibbula spratti is given here after the authority of Monterosato (1884) and is consistent with Philippi's (1849-1851) figure. Later, Monterosato (1888) synonymised this name with Gibbula nivosa A. Adams, 1853, possibly following the reports of Gibbula alveolata from Malta by other authors (listed by Monterosato, 1888, p. 173).  [details]
