"A neotype from Las Palmas is selected for Astrononion stelligerum (d'Orbigny). External sutural plates in this and some other species of Astrononion are shown to have developed from sutural tubes; consequently, the genus Pacinonion Vella, erected for species with sutural tubes, is considered a junior synonym of Astrononion. Three subgenera of Astrononion are proposed."
