Specimen labelled as the holotype of Cypraea carneola var. propinqua var. minima Dautzenberg & Bouge, 1933 aka Cypraea carneola propinqua minima Dautzenberg & Bouge, 1933. Reference: Dautzenberg, Ph.; Bouge, J.-L. (1933). Les mollusques testacés marins des établissements Français de l'Océanie [part 2]. J. Conchyliol. 77(2): 145-326 [accessed from https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/cb343487782/date1933.item]. Dautzenberg & Bouge (1933: p. 270) used the name Cypraea carneola var. minima Vayssière, 1923; their specimen is not that of Vayssière (1923, Ann. Mus. Hist. Nat. Marseille, Zoologie 18: p. 47) and therefore cannot be the holotype. Furthermore the name is preoccupied by Cypraea minima Monterosato, 1897. The real identity of the specimen (to be established by a cowry specialist) is probably either Lyncina carneola (Linnaeus, 1758) or Lyncina propinqua (Garrett, 1879). 1° étiquette: Cypraea carneola var. propinqua var. minima Dautzenberg & Bouge, 1933 Holotype, Papeete loc. --- MT2494 - BE-RBINS-INV-TYPES-MT-2494-Cypraea-carneola-propinqua-minima - MT-2494-Cypraea-carneola-propinqua-minima-RXFrench Polynesia, 2°étiquette: Cypraea carneola Lin. v. crassa f. minor Cullieret leg & ded. 1890.
