"I found Strophia albea on the south side of Spruce Key (See fig. 40), clinging to the scanty shrubbery that grows from the naked rock on this nearly desolate little island. It evidently forms an example of a nearly extinct species for, although, in company with Mr. Curtiss I searched with great care, but three living specimens were obtained on the entire key, yet the ground was strewn with dead specimens, many of which showed marks of having been on the rocks for years." (Maynard, 1894:128-129)
