Species Turritella affinis Hupe 1854

Discussion / Comments:
Griffin & Nielsen (2008):
TYPE MATERIAL. There are 10 syntypes present in the d’Orbigny Collection at the Laboratoire de Géologie under number MNHN-Gg2002/49. REMARKS. Hupé (1854), Philippi (1887) and Möricke (1896) noted the close relation to the Recent Turritella cingulata Sowerby, 1825 (type species of Incatella DeVries, 2007) living along the Chilean coast. Möricke (1896) described Turritella cingulatiformis as a Pliocene intermediate form between those two species (see Herm 1969). Incatella hupei is common in the Miocene sediments of Navidad, Arauco and Chiloé. DeVries (2007) erected the genus name Incatella for the species group leading the to Recent type species Turritella cingulata. Turritella affinis Hupé, 1854 is a junior primary homonym of Turritella affinis Müller, 1851.
