Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #11836
Comment from Dr. Richard Willan: According to Michael Miller's first study on the Tergipedidae (Miller 1977), Catriona was synonymised under Cuthona. This synonymy remained in his second study (Miller 2004), but of course the generic name got changed from Cuthona to Trinchesia. So it stays as Trinchesia columbiana.
