Ranularia cynocephalum, Lamarck 1816

Ce Ranularia cynocephalum vient d' une brocante des Hauts de Seine donc de provenance inconnue. Il porte bien son nom s' il vient de l' Indo-Pacifique ou Côte est de l' Afrique mais devrait se nommer Ranularia cynocephalum f. caribbaeum (Clench & Turner, 1957) s' il venait des Caraïbes. Cymatium moritinctum (Reeve, 1844) est un synonyme ce qui m' avait amené a le taxoner Cymatium moritinctum f. caribbaeum, Clench & Turner 1957 qui n' existe pas! Taille: 68 mm..

This Ranularia cynocephalum comes from a flea market of the Hauts de Seine therefore of unknown provenance. It is aptly named if it comes from the Indo-Pacific or East Coast of Africa, but should be called Ranularia cynocephalum f. caribbaeum (Clench & Turner, 1957) if it originated from the Caribbean. Cymatium moritinctum (Reeve, 1844) is a synonym which had brought me to the name: Cymatium moritinctum f. caribbaeum, Clench & Turner 1957, which does not exist! Size: 68 mm ..
