Type material.

Holotype: ZMA.MOLL. 138319 [original publication indicates ZMA 3.87.105]; two paratypes: ZMA.MOLL. 138320.

Type locality.

Curaçao /Aruba [according to Jong and Coomans (1988: 124), the holotype was selected from mixed material from those two localities].

Remarks.

Ondina stocki  (Figure 3 c–e) was originally described in Evalea  , based on a sample of shells from Aruba/ Curaçao; the original illustration is a simple drawning that precludes a precise generic allocation, but the photographs of the holotype (Figure 3c) and of a young and an adult paratypes (Figure 3 d–e) clearly shows that this species belong in the genus Ondina  . The shell shape is similar to Ondina hendersoni  , but the shell is narrower, and the spiral grooves are less numerous.

Lee (2009) recorded Evalea stocki  from Jacksonville Beach, Florida, (USA) based on a young specimen. The author, in the same work, referred to a color illustration of that species, published by Gundersen (1998), but named by Gundersen (1998) as Amoura hendersoni  . The figured shells from Sanibel Island in Gundersen (1998) and that from Jacksonville in Lee (2009) clearly can be ascribed to the genus Ondina  , but the images provided by the authors as well as the drawing of Amoura cf. hendersoni  by Odé (1994), do not allow a precise separation between O. stocki  or O. hendersoni  . Also, the simple drawing of Amoura cf. hendersoni  from Texas in Odé (1994) does not allow a conclusive identification, in spite of the pattern of spiral grooves resembling that found in O. stocki  .

Therefore, we consider that the only confirmed occurrence of O. stocki  is that restricted to the type locality area.
