Playa Rincon, Ensenada de Mora, Oriente, found in large numbers on the sea grape (Coccoloba) trees, approximately a dozen to the square meter, by Welch, August 15, 1927.   These were identified by Dr. de la Torre, and I learned he had been there previous to my visit.  Further series were collected by Pilsbry and Welch, August  3, 1928.

Type Material: Holotype, ANSP 152727


This taxon was originally published as Cerion ramsdeni Torre, but Boyko & Rosenberg (1999:43) noted that this name should be attributed to Welch rather than Torre.
