 Cernohorsky, W. O. 1976. p.516 [ The type-specimen of C. pasithea which was illustrated by Tomlin and which has a repair scar above the outer lip and which was said to be in SAMC (no. A-3434) is now in BMNH. Tomlin stated that several examples were dredged, and since no holotype was designated by Tomlin in the original publication (nor was any specimen marked as such), the existing specimen in BMNH was designated the lectotype by Cernohorsky (1976). ]  Type information
