Geographic Distribution: Abaco, Bahama Islands.

Type Locality: Abaco, Bahamas (Robert Swift). [25° 51.5' N, 77° 10.5' W]

Type Material: Lectotype, ANSP 25338


Dall 1905b:36 mentions a manuscript name Strophia alta that was associated with this taxon in the USNM collections.


Fossil with C. eleutherae var., above "Glass Window," Eleuthera Island, at Station 22.  Living on Rum Cay, Maynard; Abaco, Pilsbry.


The fossil specimens agree closely with a specimen from Rum Cay, named for the U. S. National Museum by Mr. Maynard.  It recalls C. grayi Maynard in its sculpture, but is smaller and more fusiform.


Clench (1934:209) believed Dall (1905:41) to be in error in citing C. maynardi as occurring on Rum Cay.  He believed that an extreme form of C. lentiginosum was very probably identified as this species.


Clench (1934:209) reports this species from Cedar Point; 2 mi. SE of Cedar Point; South West Point, Great Abaco (March, 1934).
