Names and Taxonomy

Taxonomy

Kantor & Harasewych (1999) compared the holotype of Sipho gaini Lamy, 1910 with the holotype and paratypes of Belaturricula antarctica Dell, 1990, and found the two taxa to be conspecific.  In their redescription of the species, they provide the following synonyms:

Belaturricula gaini (Lamy, 1910)
Sipho gaini Lamy, 1910: 319, Lamy, 1911: 7, pi. 1, figs 7-8.
Prosipho? gaini - Thiele, 1912: 262.
?Chlanidota gaini -Powell, 1951: 142.
