Cerion (Strophiops) lucayanorum
Clench, 1938: 326-327, pl. 25, fig. 2.
"This species is closely related to C. maynardi P. & V. from the southern tip of Great Abaco Island. It differs from this species in being more attenuated in proportion to its width, possessing more numerous ribs and in having a less thickened lip. From C. abacoense P. & V. it differs in its greater proportionate attenuation and the less thickening of the lip. The ribs on the body whorl of C. lucayanorum are less in number as there are 31 to 38 on abacoense as defined by Pilsbry (loc. cit., p. 249). From C. chrysaloides, known only from Eight Mile Rock, Grand Bahama Island, it differs by being very much larger and possessing more ribs on the body whorl (the three paratypes of chrysaloides received from Plate vary from 17-19 ribs.)."
