Determination history

new name for C. leve Quoy & Gaimard, 1834 non C. leavis Perry, 1810
, . - More molluscan name changes, generic and specific. Proceedings of the Malacological Society of London 12: 322-330
Citation: p. 326 Remarks. — "The original species nameproposed by Quoy & Gaimard (1834) was spelled "/eve" but most subsequent authors have used "laeve." This name is preoccupied by Cerithium laevis Perry, 1810, which although slightly different in spelling, does not vary enough to constitute a significant difference (see Code, Article 58), Quoy &Gaimard's name thus becomes a junior primary homonym"
