    Definitions

From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Pseudopotamilla oculifera (Leidy) has been synonymised with P. reniformis in the past. No recent re-evaluation appears to exist, and Hartman (1938) does not mention the name in her presentation of Pseudopotamilla species. Later, in the Hartman catalogue (1959:557) she lists it as valid, but gives it as a "perhaps" P. reniformis. [details]
