Strophiops clappii Maynard, 1913

Original Description

S. clappii new. A tiny dwarf .50 by .20, aside from size, exactly like ornatula. Very abundant living on a salina north of the Current Settlement. This salina was nearly surrounded by fields containing absolutely millions of dead shells of this and the two preceding. I have named this beautiful lit­tle shell in honor of Mr. William F. Clapp who has taken great interest in my studies in this family.
