Cerion knipensis H.B. Baker,1914
Cerion uva knipensis
Baker, 1924:102-103, pl. 19.
Station Cb17b. Valley between Seroes Palomba and Baha Hoendoe, northern Curaçao. This north-facing canyon was collected during a rainstorm, when the molluscs were moving around on the surface; for this reason, the shells appeared much more abundant than in the other localities examined. However, this was the most heavily wooded valley visited. Most of the shells were obtained near its mouth, by Drymaeus virgulatus was more numerous at its head, near the saddle between Seroes Palomba and Baha Hoendoe (211.9 meters).
The type specimen is identified in the caption to Plate 19. [Pl. 19, F5]
