Scissurella maraisorum Geiger, 2006 

maraisorum  Geiger, 2006: 10-11, figs 7 (holotype), 8 (paratypes) [ Scissurella  , 20 m, Aliwal Shoal, KwaZulu-Natal south coast, Republic of South Africa. June 2003. 30.250°S, 30.817°E (col. J.P. and A.P. Marais): 0.72 mm].

Material examined.

Holotype. South Africa • KwaZulu-Natal, Aliwal Shoal, 30.2507°S, 30.8177°E, depth 20 m; SCUBA diving, don. D. Geiger, 28 Mar. 2006; T1616; NMSA-MOL 0W3498; Fig. 19View Figure 19 (Larger diameter: 0.74 mm).

Paratypes. South Africa • 2; same data as holotype; T1617; NMSA-MOL 0W3499.

Current status.

Scissurella maraisorum  Geiger, 2006; original combination.

Remarks.

The shell of the holotype is attached to the gelatine capsule and was not photographed to avoid possible damage. Visual examination confirms that it is the shell illustrated in the original description and larger diameter was measured using ocular micrometer, through the gelatine capsule. There are nine paratypes in other collections (see Geiger 2006: 10), all from the type locality. Coordinates were incorrectly rounded up in the original description.
