Cerion ramsdeni Welch, 1934
Playa Rincon, Ensenada de Mora, Oriente, found in large numbers on the sea grape (Coccoloba) trees, approximately a dozen to the square meter, by Welch, August 15, 1927. These were identified by Dr. de la Torre, and I learned he had been there previous to my visit. Further series were collected by Pilsbry and Welch, August 3, 1928.
This taxon was originally published as Cerion ramsdeni Torre, but Boyko & Rosenberg (1999:43) noted that this name should be attributed to Welch rather than Torre.
