Don't think for a moment this isn't the first misID of this kind ever
perpetrated. In the mid 1960's Stan Levine gave a memorable talk to
the NY Shell Club entitled "Phony Conus." He drew heavily on juvenile
strombids, the columbellid genus Parametaria, and certain taxa then
placed in the Turridae.
I don 't recall seeing a stromboid notch in any juvenile strombid
such as the topical one appears to be.
