Aulacodiscus laevis Brightwell 1860, p. 95; pl. 6, fig. 13
CommentsIt is not specified that this is the name of a new taxon. Illustrated as “Aulacodiscus, abnormal specimen”. In the “errata and corrigenda” for this paper (p. 139), Brightwell notes: “Aulacodiscus laevis. I find this form has been named and distributed by Dr. Arnott as A. kittoni; the specific name of “laevis” should, therefore, be canceled, and “kittoni” substituted”
