Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Pre-occupied d'Orbigny, 1847 yet not requiring replacement following synonymy with T. declivis.
Not pre-occupied through recombination by Cerithium excavatum Sowerby in Reeve, 1865 as this is a granulated Colpospira australis (Lamarck, 1822) which eliminates the recombination necessity.

Both Tryon (1886:205) and Kobelt (1897:50) treated this name as synonym for Turritella exoleta (Linnaeus, 1758), and are here considered misidentifications. [details]
