Textularia striata Ehrenberg 1840 is the type species of Striataella Aliyulla, 1977 if it is a Planoheterohelix then Planoheterohelix is a subjective junior synonym of Striataella except if Striataella is a junior homonym of an other genus. I am sure Brian will be interested.

I've forwarded this comment to him. Do you have the reference for Aliyulla 1977?
