Nassarius sp. Santos Brazil
8/25/14 Harry Lee:
There is a fundamental difference in the anterior shell between it and "Nassarius" coppingeri.
As you originally indicated on LTS, I believe this species is related to U. scissurata (Dall, 1889).
8/28/14 Harry Lee:
Do you think the São Paulo and
Santos specimens may belong to
a single species?
At this point, now that I've seen more
material from that area and noted the
large range of mature sizes, variability
in fine cords belwo suture, and
considering that the shells presented
as N. sp. Santos Brazil were dead-
collected, probably they are.
