Remarks

From Hollick (1930) (p. 115)

"There can be but little doubt in regard to the identity of our specimen with this well-defined, unique species, as depicted by Heer, from the Patoot beds of Greenland. Heer's specimen is larger than ours, but otherwise the two compare perfectly in every detail. The species has not been heretofore recorded from elsewhere than the type locality in Greenland."
