Remarks

The names Cerithium pulchellum C.B. Adams, 1850   or Triphora pulchella   were used by many authors (e.g., Abbott 1974; Rios 2009). It is a junior homonym of Cerithium pulchellum Sowerby, 1832   , a senior synonym of the cerithiopsid Horologica pupa (Dall & Simpson, 1901)   (De Jong & Coomans 1988; Rolán & Espinosa 1992) and its type material is lost (Clench & Turner 1950). Thus, C. pulchellum C.B. Adams, 1850   is not a synonym of S. intermedia   , as suggested by Rolán & Fernández-Garcés (2007, 2008), but T. pulchella   auct. non C.B. Adams, 1850 is indeed a synonym.

Another problematic name is Triphoris pulchellus A. Adams, 1854   , which Albano et al. (2019: 171) wrongly indicated was regarded as a synonym of Similiphora intermedia   by Rolán & Fernández-Garcés (2008); actually, Rolán & Fernández-Garcés (2008) referred to the species of C.B. Adams (1850), not A. Adams (1854). Because the single type of Triphoris pulchellus A. Adams, 1854   has a broken apex (without protoconch, preventing a precise identification) and the type locality is unknown, it must be regarded as a nomen dubium (but not regarded as homonym of the cerithiopsid Cerithium pulchellum C.B. Adams, 1850   ). If this is indeed a Caribbean shell, the most similar species is Triphora atlantica   Smith, 1890, although apparently without the spiral microsculpture observed in T. pulchellus A. Adams, 1854   (Albano et al. 2019: fig. 7h).
