Coordinate Remarks: from "AN ANNOTATED CHECKLIST AND BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE LAND AND FRESHWATER SNAILS OF MÉXICO AND CENTRAL AMERICA" by Fred G. Thompson, 2011: "Von Martens (1899) sug-gested that the orthography of Chopatilo probably is incorrect. He gives three localities with different spellings that may have been the place of origin of the types, one in Michoacán, one in Sonora and one in Nuevo León. The latter locality is here selected as the most probable: Hacienda Chapotito, near Cerralvo, Nuevo León, México (26.10º N, 99.62º W)."
