This taxon was placed in the synonymy of Bothriembryon rhodostomus (Gray, 1834) by B.J. Smith (1992: 106), apparently not based on examination of the type material. The figure shown by Köhler (2007; here reproduced) is a shell much larger (H = 44.5) than any of the taxa currently considered to be Bothriembryon rhodostomus, and the colouration is with darker tones. We tentatively follow here Smith’s judgement, but further studies should clarify the status of this taxon.
