Strophia picta Maynard, 1889
Maynard, 1889a:18-20,pl.2,figs.6,6B.; Harasewych et al., 2007:378-379, fig. 6.
This species occurs in a very limited area, on the west end of Little Cayman. Near the southern termination of the western path that extended across the key, or rather near its junction with the main path, was a patch of guinea-grass; in this, were numerous open spots, and in them, or on their borders, these Strophias lived, occupying in all about a half acre.
The habits of the Painted Strophias are rather more social than those of the Pictured, as they occur in small groups of a half dozen or more, but are nowhere common." (Maynard, 1889:18-20)
Clench (1964:368) designated MCZ 247019 as lectotype. The other syntype became a paralectotype. The remaining 73 specimens have no status as types (Harasewych et al., 2007:378).
Clench (1964:368) regarded this taxon as a synonym of Cerion pannosum (Maynard, 1889).
