Strophiops inexpecta Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1920d: Plate 25, figs. 3, 4; Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1921a:127.

Original Description: Click to view

Geographic Distribution: Exuma Group of Islands, Bahama Islands.

Type Locality: westernmost Brigadier Key, [Exuma Group, Bahamas].

Type Material: Lectotype, MCZ 76307

There are an unspecified number of paralectotypes, including MCZ 357008 (8 specimens), and MCZ 118187.


The captioned illustrations (Maynard 1920:pl. 25, figs. 3, 4) were published prior to the text.  The taxon thus dates from the publication of the name in the caption accompanying the illustrations, not from the subsequently published text (Article 12.2.7, ICZN, 1999:17).  The date of publication is September 30, 1920. Plate 25 was issued as part of "Part Two" of the Contributions to the History of Cerionidae, therefore authorship of this taxon is attributed to Maynard and Clapp.
