|Drawing of a shell of Neptunea angulata|
There is some confusion concerning the nomenclature (the naming) of this extinct taxon. The species was formerly known as Neptunea contraria. This is, however, the name of a modern extant species, and therefore the two names are not synonyms. This has been clarified by Nelson & Pain, 1986.
