History and Synonymy

1982

Ladd, 1982, p. 35:

  • "Two typical specimens from river debris (station SG79) on the Sarakata River, Santo, New Hebrides, are probably Pleistocene in age. The figured shell measures: length 44,8 mm, diameter 25,3 mm. As Abott pointed out. this species is characteristic of the western Indian Ocean area. Shells in the National Museum collection, however (No. 609962), are from New Caledonia. Abbott (1960) questioned the Vredenberg report of an occurence in the Gaj beds (upper Miocene) in West Pakistan."

Strombus (Dolomena) plicatus columba in Ladd, 1982, pl. 4, fig. 11, 12

  • Comment Wieneke: "This does not look like a D. columba sensu Sowerby, it seems to be a separate species closely related to D. wienekei
