Wrobel and Mills, 1998. Acta Errata: p. 74, Photo 134; p. 104. The species we labelled as Corolla calceola is actually Corolla spectabilis Dall, 1871. We missed a recent paper revising this genus by J. Rampal (Beaufortia, Aug. 1996), who points out the differences between these two species - C. spectabilis has 12 mucus glands in a row, while C. calceola has 18. Only C. spectabilis seems to occur in the east Pacific. (Thanks to Carol Lalli.). http://faculty.washington.edu/cemills/ActaErrata.html
