Subgenus Maynardia

Original Description

"Subgenus Maynardia Dall, 1894.

            Armature resembling that of Strophiops, but the parietal tooth short, not exceeding three times its height, and rather abruptly terminated at the inner end. Type S. neglecta Maynard, Andros Island, Bahamas. (Figure 1.)

            Strophia alba Maynard, S. protea Gundl., S. maritima Pfr., S. cyclostoma Küster, and S. incana Binney, belong to this group, which is common to Cuba, the Bahamas, and South Florida. C. Agassizii also seems to belong here, though somewhat less characteristic than the recent species."
