Cerion (Umbonis) asperum
Clench & Aguayo, 1952:428-430, pl. 56, figs. 1-2..
Maynard (1920d:116) reported this taxon to be abundant, but mostly dead. Out of 1500 specimens collected only 70 were living. Maynard (1924a:167) contradicted this number, stating that of 953 collected, 70 were living, and provided more detailed descriptions of the shell, ecology and anatomy of this taxon. Clench & Aguayo (1951) considered Cerion asperum to be a valid species and the senior synonym of Strophiops scalariformis.
