Cerion djerimensis H.B. Baker, 1914
Cerion uva knipensis form djerimensis
H. B. Baker, 1924:103, pl. 19, fig. A1.
Station C17b. Top of shore cliffs. This lot comes from the top of the high shore cliffs (about 10 meters) between Plaja Djerimi and Knip Baai. It is a considerably more barren substation (fig. vi-14) than the nearby seroe.
Station C17c. Sides of Plaja Abau. Plaja Abau ends in a beach of dazzling white, coral sand. On either side, the overhanging shore cliffs (8.2 meters) extend for a short distance inland; the calcareous zone at their summits is very narrow. The valley mouth itself is choked with mangroves and brush.
Type identified in caption to Plate 19 [Pl. 19, fig. A1].
