Status Bush (1905: 248, 250) used Spirorbis corrugatus Montagu for sinistral specimens from Ireland, and pointed out that Caullery & Mesnil's dextral form with spiral lines to which they applied Montagu's name "must be distinct", creating the new species Spirorbis pseudocorrugatus for it. The Knight-Jones's 1975 review of Janua confirms this assignment, stating "Spirorbis corrugatus Montagu ( 1803) was an inadequately described sinistral species, possibly Spirorbis rupestris Gee & Knight-Jones (1962) to judge from Montagu’s ecological notes. S.corrugatus Montagu sensu Langerhans (1880) was dextral and seems to have been a species of Janua (Pillaiospira) (p. 116). The dextral S.corrugatus sensu Caullery & Mesnil and most modern authors was renamed pseudocorrugatus by Bush (1904) who realised the other name was preoccupied [their categorisation for a misidentification wrongly using Montagu's name]" [details]

From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Probably best this name is not revived for use as firstly the concept is confused with what became Neodexiospira pseudocorrugatus. Secondly the better-known name Spirorbis (S) rupestris Gee & Knight-Jones, 1962 is the current name for the entity, with Knight-Jones more than once indicating her name was probably junior to S. corrugatus, although without implementing a synonymy [details]

Status Bush (1905: 248, 250) used Spirorbis corrugatus Montagu for sinistral specimens from Ireland, and pointed out that Caullery & Mesnil's dextral form with spiral lines to which they applied Montagu's name "must be distinct", creating the new species Spirorbis pseudocorrugatus for it. The Knight-Jones's 1975 review of Janua confirms this assignment, stating "Spirorbis corrugatus Montagu ( 1803) was an inadequately described sinistral species, possibly Spirorbis rupestris Gee & Knight-Jones (1962) to judge from Montagu’s ecological notes. S.corrugatus Montagu sensu Langerhans (1880) was dextral and seems to have been a species of Janua (Pillaiospira) (p. 116).
