Bulimus physoides Reeve, 1849 – Wikispecies link – Pensoft Profile
- Bulimus physoides Reeve 1849 [1848–1850]: pl. 70 fig. 507; Breure and Ablett 2012: 31, figs 2H–I.
NHMUK 1975224, three possible syntypes (Cuming coll.).
See the remarks in Breure and Ablett (2012) about the type status of the specimens and the relation with Bulimus physodes Menke, 1843. B.J. Smith (1992: 105) has synonymized Menke’s taxon with Bothriembryon melo (Quoy and Gaimard, 1832); E.A. Smith (1894: 95) mentioned several differences between the two taxa and gave Menke’s taxon full species status. We tentatively follow the opinion of B.J. Smith, but further studies are needed to solve the systematic arrangement of both taxa.
