Drillocerithium marosticum
status

 

marosticum, Drillocerithium  [ Cerithium vulgatum  –complex] taxon inquirendum ( Figures 9I, J View Figure )

1910: 73, pl. I, fig. 15 [LIX: 1201, 1205, fig. 15]—available name

Type material. MCZRAbout MCZR –M–8861 —1 sh “Drillocerith. marosticum Monts. S. Nicola Isole Tremiti (Adr.)  sulla spiaggia”// 3 sh “C. di S. Nicola Isole Tremiti (Adr.) 1906 legit Cecconi”

Type locality. Described from S. Nicola Is. ( Italy). 

Remarks. Recorded as a synonym of Cerithium protractum Ant. Bivona in And. Bivona, 1838  by MolluscaBase (2018). Based on the examined type shells it belongs rather in the Cerithium vulgatum  –complex [new status].

monterosati, Cerithium  (ex Brusina ms.) [ Cerithium renovatum Monterosato, 1884  ] ( Figures 9K, L View Figure )

1900: 400 [LI: 1144]—available name

Type material. MCZR– M–8928— 1 sh + 1 frg “ renovatum M. Kerinia  (Cipro) Cecc. [= Cecconi] 1899” // 4 sh “ C. monterosatoi Brus. Dalm.  ” ex Brusina // 3 sh “ C. monterosati Brus. Dalmazia  dedit Prof. Xxxx [unreadable] ex Coll Stalio”

Type locality. Described from Kérinia ( Cyprus), Sicily (ex. Philippi) and 'Dalmatia' (ex Brusina).

Remarks. Recorded by MolluscaBase (2018) as taxon inquirendum. Taxon introduced for Cerithium minutum de Serres, 1828 sensu Philippi, 1836  , considered as a distinct species. Type material probably also in Philippi’s collection. The material from Cyprus belongs to Cerithium renovatum Monterosato, 1884  [new synonymy]. However, the samples from Dalmatia may belong to another species ( C. lividulum  ?) confirming the problems in the morphological classification of these species (e.g. Garilli & Galletti, 2006).

opinatum, Drillocerithium  [ Cerithium protractum Ant. Bivona in And. Bivona, 1838  ] ( Figures 9M, N View Figure )

1910: 72, pl. I, fig. 10 [LIX: 1200, 1205, fig. 10]—available name

Type material. MCZRAbout MCZR –M–30005 —2 sh “Drillocerith. opinatum  M. fig. 10, p 72 1910— Pal. Foss. di Nizzeti ”  . Type locality. Described from Nizzeti † (Sicily)  .

Remarks. Recorded by MolluscaBase (2018) as taxon inquirendum. The type material belongs to Cerithium protractum Ant. Bivona in And. Bivona, 1838  [new synonymy].

plicornatum, Gladiocerithium  [ Cerithium alucastrum ( Brocchi, 1814)  ] ( Figures 9O, P View Figure )

1910: 71, pl. I, fig. 4 [LIX: 1199, 1205, fig. 4]—available name

Type material. MCZR–M–8644 —4 sh “ Gladiocerithium plicornatum, Monts. Sperlinga  ! Palermo”

Type locality. Described from Sperlinga † (Sicily). 

Remarks. Recorded as a synonym of Cerithium alucastrum ( Brocchi, 1814)  by Garilli et al. (2017) and MolluscaBase (2018). However, this Pliocene form does not fully correspond to the Recent C. alucastrum  . We keep it in the synonymy of Brocchi’s species, but urge a revision of this complex that may include more species.

prismaticum, Gladiocerithium  [ Cerithium alucastrum ( Brocchi, 1814)  ]

1910: 70, pl. I, figs 8, 9 [LIX: 1198, 1205, figs 8, 9]—available name

Type material. Not found

Type locality. Described from Valencia ( Spain) and Ficarazzi † (Sicily).

Remarks. Recorded as a synonym of Cerithium alucastrum ( Brocchi, 1814)  by Garilli et al. (2017) and MolluscaBase (2018). However, the two shells figured (in photos) by Monterosato do not fully correspond to the specimen figured as Cerithium alucastrum ( Brocchi, 1814)  by Garilli et al. (2017: 7, fig. 4F), and reported as a “shell conforming to Gladiocerithium prismaticum Monterosato, 1910  ”.

pugioniferum, Hirtocerithium  [ Cerithium vulgatum Bruguière, 1792  ] ( Figures 9Q, R View Figure )

1910: 74, pl. I, fig. 18) [LIX: 1202, 1205, fig. 18]—available name

Type material. MCZR–M–8664 —3 sh “Hirtocerith. pugioniferum Monts  , quatern. Di Larnaca (Cipro), tipi figurati in Conchiologia, note Cerith. viv. e foss. Pal. 1910, p. 74 t. I, f. 18”

Type locality. Described from Larnaca † ( Cyprus). 

Remarks. Name introduced by means of a figure (description lacking). Recorded by MolluscaBase (2018) as a synonym of Cerithium vulgatum Bruguière, 1792  .

renovatum, Cerithium  [ Cerithium renovatum Monterosato, 1884  ]

1884h: 120 [XXXI: 776]—available name

Type material. Type material in Philippi’s collection: lectotype and one paralectotype in ZMHUAbout ZMHU (Gofas, Garilli & Boisselier–Dubayle, 2004: 100).

Type locality. Sicily. 

Remarks. Nomen novum pro Cerithium vulgatum var. pulchella Philippi, 1836  , which—once raised to species level—becomes homonym of Cerithium pulchellum Dujardin, 1837  . Recorded by MolluscaBase (2018) as Cerithium renovatum Monterosato, 1884  .
