Although no type material is available for N. albus, and many interpretive illustrations have been published, the shell illustrated here is clearly not even close to Say's description. The illustrated shell is most definitely Nassarius vibex (Say, 1822). Note that this page is very confused by being labeled N. candei, but N. albus is supposedly presented.
