 Lucapina sowerbii (G. B. Sowerby I, 1835), = Lucapina adspersa (Philippi, 1845)

6/13/15: It appears that the prior treatment of Lucapina adspersa (Philippi, 1845) as a synonym has gone by the wayside and the proper treatment should be Lucapina adspersa (Philippi, 1845) [= L. sowerbii auctores non (G. B. Sowerby I, 1835)].  I believe this means many past treatments confused Lucapina adspersa as the same as L. sowerbii.  However, as of 10/20/17 WoRMS accepts these as separate species.  The below presentation presents the shells accepted as Sowerby's  L. sowerbii.  See also Jaxshells.
