Strophia intermedia Maynard, 1889
Maynard, 1889a:13-15,pl.2,figs.3,3B.; Harasewych et al., 2007:376, fig. 3.
The Small Rough Strophia is found on the coast of the south side of Little Cayman, west of a large mangrove swamp that nearly divides the island into two unequal portions, and along the beach on the south side of Cayman Brac, as far east as the cocoa-nut grove extends, now about half the length of the key.
They are much more common than the Ragged Strophia, and although they mingle occasionally with the colonies of the Common Strophia that border the shore, they are never found far from the beaches. They are more common on Little Cayman than on Cayman Brac; see further remarks under habits of S. copia." (Maynard, 1889:13-15)
Harasewych et al., 2007:376 selected one of two syntypes as the lectotype [MCZ 2076067]. The remaining syntype became a paralectotype. The other 2,998 specimens mentioned in the original description do not have any status as types.
Clench (1964:368) included this species in the synonymy of Strophia pannosa Maynard, 1889.
