Volume 31, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



A specimen from the original type material of Calliostoma multiliratum (Sowerby, 1875) has been located; it is figured and designated lectotype. C. multiliratum appears to be a Chinese/Japanese species. No similar material is known from South Africa and local material previously known as C. multiliratum should be referred to C. crossleyae Smith, 1910. An updated synonymy and a summary of information currently available for C. crossleyae are given.
