Original Description:

Although the North American shells have been so carefully studied for many years, new species are still turning up. Mr. W. G. Binney sent me recently a fine new Zonites or Hyalina, found in North Carolina. This species, which I shall call Z. Carolinenses, is allied to Z. sculptilio, but differs in its fewer whorls, its straighter columellar margin, its fewer sculptured lines, and its less lunar aperture. Fig. 231 in Binney's "Man. Am. Land Shells " is Carolinensis, and not sculptilis, as there stated.
