Original Description: Click to view

Type Locality: Unknown

"Several hundreds of this species were obtained by Mr. John Ford from a barrel of shells from the Bahamas, exact island unfortunately unkn own. On comparison with the nearly complete series of Cerion in the collection of the Academy it is evident that a new polymorphic species is before us, probably from an island or region of an island hitherto unexplored for this genus." (Pilsbry and Vanatta, 1897:366).
