Strophiops reliqua Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1921a:130 (as relequa), Plate 27, figs. 7, 8 (as S. reliqua); Harasewych et al., 2007:488, fig. 184.

Original Description: Click to view

Geographic Distribution: Grand Bahama Island, Bahama Islands.

Type Locality: Holmes' Key, [SW Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas]

Type Material: Lectotype, MCZ 76206

There are 191 paralectotypes, including MCZ 76205.


The taxon name appears as relequa in the text and reliqua on the plate, both published on the same date.  The taxon is listed as S. reliqua in Maynard (1924:[7]). The spelling relequa is an "incorrect original spelling" [Article 32.5.1, ICZN, 1999:39] and thus has no separate availability [Article 32.4, ICZN, 1999:39].   Clench (1957:160) listed this taxon as S. relequa.
