This paper presents for the fi rst time the types of Ostrea imputata, Cardium leve, Tellina divergens, Tellina palliderosea, and Mactra cojimbensis described by H. E. ANTON (1837 and 1838). All types are unambiguous and conform to the original diagnosis. Vepricardium leve (Anton, 1838) is a valid earlier name for V. multispinosum (G. B. Sowerby II, 1839) which is the type species of Vepricardium Iredale, 1929. Tellina s. l. palliderosea Anton, 1838, is the valid, earlier name for the well known South African T. alfredensis Bartsch, 1915. Tellinella divergens (Anton, 1838) is the valid earlier name for T. exculta Gould, 1850, known from Australia and Melanesia, and for T. fl ammula Deshayes, 1855, from unknown locality. Mactra cojimbensis (Anton, 1837) is a junior synonym. The true identity of Ostrea imputata is as yet unknown.
