Distribution Watson (1881:222; 1886:478) mentions both stations 162 (Bass Strait, East of Moncoeur Island) as well as 167a (Queen Charlotte Sound, New Zealand) as localities for his new species Turritella carlottae.
Nor Suter (1913:267) nor Murdoch & Suter (1905:292) address the issue of occurrence in both Australia and New Zealand, yet treat it with priority as opposed to "vittata Hutton (non Lamk.)". Like Smith (1915:80-81), the present editor / reviser has as yet not been able to trace back any name introduced by Lamarck resembling or equal to Turritella vittata.
Hedley (1913:292) briefly addressed (some of) the type material only stating that the label admits the identity of carlottae with vittata and that "..., this datum does not justify the admission of T. vittata Hutton to the Australian list by Pritchard and Gatliff"
Iredale (1924:247) referred to the note by Smith (1915:80) that Hedley never actually saw the Bass Strait specimen as it is preserved separately from the "tablet" to which Hedley refers. Iredale suggests the separated Bass Strait sample is a specimen of tasmanica Ten. Woods (= atkinsoni Tate & May, 1900)
Garrard (1972:328) briefly addresses the Bass Strait locality, stating that - apart from the "Challenger" material - no further samples of vittata have been recorded from that locality, yet concludes that its esistence as an Australian species must still be regarded with doubt.
Based on Smith and Iredale, it would however be safe to assume that vittata does not occur in Australian waters, and is confined to New Zealand only.
Both samples are preserved at NHMUK (not yet seen by present editor / reviser). Although both type samples are clearly not conspecific (fide Smith, 1915:80-81), the Australian occurrence still is part of the original description and type material, and as such here listed as type locality, let it be as "doubtful". [details]

Distribution Watson (1881:222; 1886:478) mentions both stations 162 (Bass Strait, East of Moncoeur Island) as well as 167a (Queen Charlotte Sound, New Zealand) as localities for his new species Turritella carlottae.
