Original Description of Strombus marginatus by Linnaeus, 1758, p. 744:

History and Synonymy

Margistrombus marginatus (Linnaeus, 1758: 744) (Strombus)

  • Syn.: Lambis carinata Röding, 1798: 62

1766

Canarium latum in Rumphius, 1766, pl. XXXVII, fig. X

1777

Martini, 1777, pl. 79, fig. 816

1786

Schröter, 1783, p. 431 about Strombus marginatus:

  • "XII. Strombus marginatus. Linn. Spec. 499. p. 1209. Die Lappenschnecke, Müller, das Flügelhorn, Gronov. holländ. Vlerkhooren. Meine Kupfertafeln tab. 2. fig. 10. Strombus testae labro prominulo, dorso marginato laevi, cauda integra. Linné. Die gesäumte Flügelschnecke des Linné hat einen hervorragenden Flügel, einen gesäumten glatten Rücken, und einen ganzen oder ununterbrochenen Schwanz. Der Flügel gleichet im Bau dem Flügel der vorhergehenden Schnecke, nur daß er in einer geraden Linie ununterbrochen bis zur Nase fortgehet, und das heißt hier cauda integra. Der ganze Rücken ist glatt, ausser die Nase ist quergestreift, und oben fast am Ende der ersten Windung liegt ein scharfer Saum, der noch an der vierten Windung sichtbar ist; hinter diesem Saum und auf alle den folgenden Windungen sichtbar ist; hinter diesem Saum und auf alle den folgenden WIndungen sieht man die feinsten Querstreifen, und die letztern vier Windungen haben feine Einkerbungen. Die Mündungslippe hat inwendig schwache Zähne, sie ist innig weiß, so wie die schmale Spindellefze, welche unten an der Nase vier kurze kaum sichtbare Zähne hat, die aber nicht in die Schnecke hinein gehen. Die Grundfarbe ist braungelb, mit einigen schmalen weissen, mit einigen braunen Fädens unterbrochenen Bändern. Der Saum des Rückens ist auch weiß, die obern Windungen sind bräunlich sehr helle, und die drey letztern sind rosenroth. Diese Schnecke muß sehr selten seyn, weil ihrer, ausser Linné, kein Schriftsteller gedenket, und auch keine Zeichnung vorhanden ist. Zwar wird ihrer in Gronov Zoophylacio p. 311. n. 1405. gedacht, und Rumph tab. 37. fig. S. angeführt, allein da die Rumphische Zeichnung weder dorsum marginatum, noch caudam integram hat, vom Linné auch selbst zu Strombus luhuanus, wohin sie auch gehört, gerechnet wird, so ist wahrscheinlich, daß auch Gronov den wahren Strombum marginatum nicht vor sich gehabt habe. Siehe Tab. II. Fig. 10."

1788

Chemnitz, 1788, pl. 156, fig. 1489, 1490

1798

Original Description of Lambis carinata by Röding, 1798, p. 62:

  • "779|6 L. Carinata. Die ausgehöhlte Flügelschnecke. Gmel. Strombus marginatus. sp. 15. Chemn. 10 t. 156. f. 1489. 1490 Martini 3. t. 79.f. 816. 4 St."

1817

Dillwyn, 1817, p. 665:

  • "Marginatus. 18. Shell transversely keeled, slightly nodulous, and both the lips pointed above; outer lip with a broad thickened margin.
  • Strombus marginatus. Linnaeus Syst. Nat. p. 1209. Inhabits the coasts of China. Humphreys.
  • Schroeter, Gmelin and Chemnitz appear to have mistaken S. accinctus for this species, and a shell which Mr. Humphreys sold me, under the name of S. marginatus, answers better to the Linnaean definition; it is about sixteen lines long, and half as broad, and the spire occupies about two fifths of the length; the colour is pale chestnut or fawn colour, slightly mottled with white, and the margin of the aperture and the pillar are white; both the lips are much thickened, and their pointed terminations are attached to the second whirl of the spire; the aperture is yellow."
