Fusus canaliculatusGray, 1839, p. 116, [Yen 1942, pl. 21, fig. 140] [Basis of the current name] Type Locality: 'China' [in error] Range: 30°N to 20°N; 97°W to 89°W Maximum Reported Size: 112 mm Distribution: USA: Texas; Mexico: Campeche State, Yucatan State References: Yen (1942) T Comments: Liu, Foltz & Stickle (1991) demonstrated allozyme differences in sympatry in the northern Gulf of Mexico between S. haemastoma canaliculata and S. haemastoma floridana. They are thus distinct species, not subspecies, so Stramonita canaliculata is used here as a full species. Combining Genera: Thais
Thais floridana haysaeClench, 1927, p. 6-8, [Clench 1930, pl. 2, fig. 1] [Synonym] Type Locality: Grand Bayou, Mississippi delta, Louisiana Range: 30°N to 28.3°N; 96.5°W to 85.28°W Depth: 0.3 to 11 m Maximum Reported Size: 112.5 mm Distribution: USA: Florida: West Florida; USA: Louisiana, Texas References: Clench (1927) M; Harry (1942) d; Clench (1947) N; Parker (1955) SW; Springer & Bullis (1956) DE; Kool (1993: 210); Abbott (1974) s Comments: Clench (1927) cited pl. 1, fig. 1, but the plate was not published. This omission was corrected in 1930, where the species is illustrated on pl. 2. The caption for the plate says "Figs. 10, 11. Thais floridana haysae Clench, Nautilus XLI, p. 6"; however, the text in 1927 shows that fig. 11 is a specimen of Thais floridana from North Carolina for comparison and is not part of the type series of haysae.
