Most likely, ...
this was one of Frank's unpublished Cerams - of which there are many more that I am aware of. Swift and Ray (2008), IMHO, were just tying up taxonomic loose ends. Out of respect, I'd like to think, they left Frank's original paratype label in place.

Thanks for posting the data that accompanies the specimen.
