Strophiops variata Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1919

Original Description

"The binomen Strophiops variata was used by Maynard (1919c:55; figs. 27, 28) as an example of a taxon with margins malformed following incorporation of a limestone granule in the peristome, and accompanied by figures of three specimens labeled "S. variata M. & C."  The association of a new species group name with an illustration of the taxon being named prior to 1931 makes the name Strophiops variata Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1919c [December 31]:55, figs. 27, 28 available (Article 12.2.7, ICZN, 1999:17) prior to the intended description of this species (Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1921a [May 2]:134, Plate 32, figs. 1, 2)." Harasewych et al. (2007:443)


Intended description:

"84. S. variata.

Size and costae as in last [S. jenneyi]; white with darker markings. Crab Key, common on low bushes. 1132. Plate 32, figs. 1, 2." (Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1921a:134)
