Lectotype of Helix bacca. Formosa, coll. Swinhoe, from collection of H. Cuming (NHMUK 20040577/1), new designation, 16.6 × 24.5 mm, whorls 5.5. (Figure 3F)

This species was usually considered as a member of Pancala Kuroda & Habe, 1949. Hwang (2011) transferred it to the current genus because of genital and conchological similarities. Besides, Pancala is preoccupied by a dipteran genus (Enderlein 1936). The only mature specimen is designated as lectotype.
