Colurella cf. geophila  Donner, 1951
Catalog Number: ANSP 1192
Ploimida:Lepadellidae
Original Identification: Colurella sp.  
Locality: St Paul's Island, Pribilof Islands
Country, State/Province: USA , Alaska
Collected: 7 July 1914  by G.H. Parker
Specimens: 2 females
Preparator: F.J. Myers
Remarks: Based on the morphological variability in C. hindenburgi, especially with respect to size and shape of the lorica, Segers (1998) considers C. geophila a new synonym of C. hindenburgi. The Alaskan record of C. geophila, deposited sub "n.sp." in the collection, however, largely agrees with the Austrian species description given by Donner (1951, p. 637-638, fig. 27). As the taxonomy of the C. obtusa-group, to which both C. hindenburgi and C. geophila belong, is unsettled, we provisionally identify the specimen as C. cf. geophila in order to draw attention to its peculiar morphology. A sketch of this species was found in Myers' notebook.
