Daphnella Pupoidea, H. Adams

Daphnella Pupoidea, H. Adams.

H. Adams, Proc. Zool. Soc, 1872, p. 14, pl. iii., fig. 27; Tryon, loc. cit., p. 314, pl. xxxiv., fig. 92. Mangilia victor, Sowerby, Proc. Malac. Soc, i., 1894, p. 45, pl. iv., fig. 19.

The single specimen from Funafuti is smaller and slighter than Adams' type specimen, from the New Hebrides, now in the Australian Museum. Melvill and Standen report it* from Lifu, Loyalties, and I have obtained it at Port Moresby, British New Guinea, and at Panie, New Caledonia. Drillia pygmœa, Dunker, seems to be suspiciously like this species.
