Strophia levigata Maynard, 1889
Maynard, 1889a:12-13,pl.2,figs.2,2B.; Harasewych et al., 2007:375-376, fig. 2.
The habits of the Smooth Strophias are even more solitary than those of the Ragged Strophias, as they occur in isolated groups of four or five individuals, and these groups are scattered at rather wide intervals along the only two paths that cross the key anywhere; these start together on the south side but emerge about a mile apart, on the north side, near the west end. They may have occurred elsewhere in the interior, but the almost impassable character of the thick jungle, and the rough ground from which it springs, render traveling very difficult, often impassible without cutting away the shrubbery." (Maynard, 1889:13)
Clench (1964:368) designated MCZ 247021 as lectotype. There is one paralectotype. The remaining 148 specimens have no status as types (Harasewych et al., 2007:375).
Clench (1964:368) included this species in the synonymy of Strophia pannosa Maynard, 1889.
