Strophiops nivia Maynard, 1913b:186; Harasewych et al., 2007:415, fig. 72.

Original Description: Click to view

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

Type Locality: Nassau, New Providence Island, Bahamas

In an old cemetery near Eastern Parade, [Nassau, New Providence Island, Bahamas].

Type Material: Lectotype, MCZ 10279 = Holotype of Strophia curtissii nivia Maynard, 1894


This taxon was described as new, appearing as "S. nivia new", while the  preceding taxon, S. varia-nivia was incorrectly listed as being previously described, appearing as "S. varia-nivia Mayn."  This is almost certainly an error in typesetting.  Strophiops nivia Maynard, 1913 is a junior homonym of Strophia curtissii nivia Maynard, 1894. 

The holotype of Strophia curtissii nivia Maynard, 1894 (MCZ 10279) was designated as the lectotype of Strophiops nivia Maynard, 1913 by Harasewych et al., 2007, making Strophiops nivia Maynard, 1913 both a junior homonym and an objective junior synonym of Strophia curtissii nivia Maynard, 1894.
