Status An early available name may be Cerithium heteroclites Lamarck, 1822. A shell in the Geneva Natural History Museum, reputed to be the holotype of this species (Figure 14IK), has a label written in Lamarck's hand citing New Holland (Australia) as a locality. However, the specimen is difficult to attribute to any known species because it is badly
deformed, especially on the body whorl. It is probably Cerithium atratum Born, a western Atlantic species, but it may also be a deformed specimen of Cerithium zonatum (Wood), which fits the cited locality. For this reason, it is cited as a synonym of Cerithium zonatum with a query. If it is shown that this specimen is truly conspecific with C. zonatum, the name heteroclites has priority.
