Remarks

"This species has affinities with C. columna of Inagua, C. regium of Castle Island, C. lentiginosum and C. album of Rum Cay.  The first is more elongated and pillar-like, with very dark mouth; the second is stouter, heavier, with far wider, thicker lip – in fact, a lip of quite Ethiopian characteristics; and the two forms from Rum Cay are distinguished from all the preceeding by close, even microscopic costulation of their early whorls." (Clench, 1961:250).

Clench (1961:250) synonymized six Pilsbry & Vanatta taxa under regina.
