Type material 1 sample consisting of 3 specimens, NHMUK Type collection, currently no registration number and no type status as such. According to a note on the back of the wooden tablet accompanying the three specimens, the largest and smallest specimen originate from Mus. Cuming, and can as such not be considered type material. According to the same note, the middle sized specimen is from an "old collection". Whether or not this refers to the Tankerville collection (from which the species was described) remains an open question at the moment.
Sowerby (1825; app. p. 14) also mentions two specimens he bought from G. Humphrey. These specimens have not yet been located.
Despite their non-type status, the three specimens are considered congruent to the description, and are of the species commonly referred to as Eglisia spirata (G. B. Sowerby I, 1825). In that respect, the sample has been returned to the Type Collection awaiting further results of background examinations.
