 Cernohorsky, W.O. 1991. p.138 [ Quoy & Gaimard's Mitra conovula is a composite species. The species illustrated on pl. 45 bis, figs, 18, 19, is the conovula of authors, and since the type specimens can no longer be traced in the MNHN, Cernohorsky (1991) designated these figures as the illustrated lectotype. The specimens called a "varieté" of M. conovula is actually I. olivaeformis (Swainson, 1821). ]  Type information
