Strombus Pugiloides

Stromboidea


Original Description of Strombus pugiloides by Guppy, 1873, p. 82:

  • "The shell for which I propose the above appellation considered to be Strombus pugilis by Mr Carrick Moore. The name was misprinted fragilis in his paper in Journal of the Geological Society, vol. xix, p. 511. In my papers on the tertiary fossils of Jamaica and the Westindies the species was recorded under the name Str. pugilis. In ordinary specimens like those usually found in Haiti, and elsewhere the only well-marked differences that can be noticed between the fossil shell and the recent Strombus pugilis are that in the former the last whorl is usually devoid of the spiniform tubercles and that the shell is of shorter and broader figure. But some examples supplied me by my friend Mr. Vendryes exhibit an unexpected character. They show cheyron-shaped bands of color about 12-15 on tho last whorl. Each band takes the shape of a V, the apex of which occurs near the middle of the whorl and forms an angle of about 30° pointing backwards or away from the aperture. These bands of color are about 2 mm. wide and the spaces between are about 3 mm. Numerous specimens of the recent Str. pugilis have passed through my hands, but I have noticed the slightest approach to such a character. The recent shell is pale red or pink only relieved by an indistinct band of paler tint following the middle of the whorl. A less constant difference may be found in the low rounded lamellar dentition inside the outer lip which is very faint or altogether wanting in Strombus pugilis, but more marked in the fossil."
