Abdel-Gawad, 1986, p. 111:

  • "The studied specimens coincide with those described by Kaunhowen (1897) and Müller (1898) from Kunrade (the Netherlands) and West Germany, respectively. The species C. granulata Kaunhowen differs from this species in having a relatively elevated spire and granular ornamentation. The studied specimens from Piotrawin and Janowiec come from the Kongiel's Collection."
