History and Synonymy


Strombus intermedius Grateloup, 1847, pl.32, fig. 8

Strombus intermedius var. Grateloup, 1847, pl.32, fig. 13


Harzhauser & Kronenberg, 2013:

  • "Numerous subspecies and variations have been affiliated with Persististrombus nodosus by Sacco (1893) and Cossmann and Peyrot (1923). These Aquitanian and mainly Burdigalian taxa from the Aquitaine and the Colli Torinesi are largely conspecific with P. nodosus. Exceptions are “Strombus” intermedius Grateloup, 1834—a relatively small sized species with strongly sculptured last whorl and distinct inner lip, that is probably a Persististrombus and “Strombus” mitroparvus Sacco, 1893, (see Lozouet et al. 2001b for illustrations) that may be ancestral to the Western Pacific “Strombus” micklei Ladd, 1972 and “Strombus” blanci Tröndle and Salvat, 2010."
