Iredale, 1931, p. 212:

  • "Captain Comtesse then produced another species of Stromb which he had separated from campbelli, also found in the Harbour, though previously known only from the North Coast. This proved to be vittatus, and for this well-known group I provide the name Doxander, vittatus being named as type."
