Species Fusus regularis Sowerby 1846

Discussion / Comments:
Griffin & Nielsen (2008):
TYPE MATERIAL. Holotype of Fusus regularis?: NHM-G26414 (Navidad). REMARKS. Fusus subregularis d’Orbigny is a replacement name for Fusus regularis Sowerby, the type material of which is also the type material of Fusus subregularis (ICZN 1999, Art. 72.7). Fusus darwinianus was equally introduced as a replacement name for the same species by Philippi, obviously not having access to the work of d’Orbigny (1852). The “type material” of Philippi therefore has no type status (ICZN 1999, 72.2) even though it is labelled as such. Most specimens labeled as Fusus darwinianus in the Philippi Collection at the Museo Nacional in Santiago (Chile) are conspecific with Fusus subregularis. However, one of them (SGO.PI.554, Navidad) seems to belong to one of the other Penion species common at Navidad. Specimen SGO.PI.584 (Navidad) is labelled “lectotipo” (lectotype), SGO.PI.4533, SGO.PI.4534 and SGO.PI.4535 (all from Navidad) are labelled “paralectotipo” (paralectotype).
