|Distribution||Cephalopod Bed, levesquei Zone, Toarcian of Gloucestershire, England|
|Type||Holotype: NHM E19867|
|Classification and/or Status||Subjective junior synonym of Galeropygus sublaevis (M'Coy, 1848)|
|Remarks||See revision by Barras (2006). Differs from the type of Galeropygus sublaevis only in having a slightly asymmetrical peristome. There are no other specimens to determine whether this is a consistent difference, and Barras (2006) treated the two as synonymous.
