Mitra Tabanula, Lk., var. Caledonica, Recluz.

Recluz, Journ. Conch., iv., 1853, p. 248, pl. vii., fig. 7; Tryon, loc. cit., p. 146, pl. xlii., fig. 247.

A form represented by four specimens from the outer reef of Funafuti is thus doubtfully determined. It is smaller, smoother, and narrower than the shell figured by Recluz, but approaches nearer to it than to any other illustration.
