  Oliva annulata Complex

I am obliged to Juan de Roux a colector
from Colombia for his correction of my
Oliva maculata, which I had classified as
Oliva annulata forma guttata.  I decided to
put my olives of annulata complex in this
page to be certain they are now correct.
Kindly send your comments if you think that
something is wrong
