Original Description: Click to view

Geographic Distribution: New Providence and Adjacent Islands, Bahama Islands.

Type Locality: Rose Island opposite Green Key, New Providence Island, Bahamas


Maynard (1921b:145) provided measurements 1.35 by .52 [inches; 34.3 by 13.2 mm], and references to illustrations that were issued in 1925, but listed a different locality "West shore of Hog Island opposite Green Key"  and noted 25 specimens, some perhaps subsequently collected.  Gould and Woodruff (1986:475) regarded this taxon to be a synonym of Cerion glans (Küster, 1844).
