Salinator burmana (Blandford, 1867) 

Amphibola burmana Blanford, 1867: 66  , pl. 13, figs, 7–10. Ampullarina burmana  ; Nevill 1878: 249.

Salinator burmana  ; Benthem Jutting 1956: 451, fig. 116. Salinator fragilis  ; Smythe 1975: 336.

Remarks: Salinator burmana  is distinguished from S. fragilis  by fine growth striae, flattened whorls, shallow sutures and a narrower umbilicus ( Benthem Jutting 1956). The distribution includes Java, Thailand and India. Smythe (1975) synonymised S. burmana  with S. fragilis  , based on similarities of the operculum and radula between Australian specimens of S. fragilis  and amphibolid specimens collected in the Persian Gulf. Benthem Jutting (1956) mentions that the opercula of Javanese specimens of S. burmana  bear faint spiral ridges around the nucleus. Specimens from the Persian Gulf, incorrectly attributed to S. fragilis  by Smythe (1975), may represent the western limit of this taxon if they are indeed conspecific. Given the imprecise nature of this taxon and its remarkably wide distribution across most of southern and western Asia, it may well comprise of many cryptic species.
