Strophiops praedivinauniversa Maynard, 1913
Maynard, 1913c:196; Harasewych et al., 2007:426, fig. 91.
Maynard (1913c:194) noted that S. praedivinauniversa occurred on Upper Fleming [Key, 20 miles NE of New Providence Island, Bahamas], both living and fossil. Although S. universa was reported from Upper Fleming, Great Pimlico, and the northern end of Rose Island, the type locality of S. universa, and therefore of S. praedivinauniversa is Green Key, New Providence Island, Bahamas, per Article 76.3 (ICZN, 1999:87).
The original description did not distinguish among the 25 specimens examined, and there was no mention of type material in the other parts of this publication. Thus, all 25 specimens were syntypes. This taxon was never illustrated, nor did it appear in any of Maynard's subsequent publications or catalogs. The description is limited to the statement "Intermediate between pdræivina [sic] and universa, but inclined to be more like the latter." No specimens bearing the name Strophiops praedivinauniversa could be located in museums, nor could this taxon be identified based on its limited description. The lectotype of Strophiops universa Maynard, 1913 (MCZ 76287) wasdesignated as the neotype of Strophiops praedivinauniversa Maynard, 1913 by Harasewych et al. (2007), making Strophiops praedivinauniversa Maynard, 1913 an objective synonym of Strophia universa Maynard, 1913.
Clench (1952:109) listed this taxon as a synonym of Cerion exiguum (Maynard, 1913).
