Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Type locality designated by neotype locality, 49.1797222, -123.3005556, is Straits of Georgia, Canada.

Strictly Straits of Georgia is beyond Puget Sound, but this seems immaterial given the vague original location of Stimpson's sample [G. Read ed's comment] [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material "The original material was deposited in the Smithsonian and later transferred to Chicago when William Stimpson was appointed director of the local Academy of Sciences in 1866, but [...] destroyed in 1871 during the great Chicago fire ..." [details]
