Huber, M; Schniebs, K (2009). The type specimens of recent molluscs described by ANTON (1837 and 1838): 8. Ostreidae, Cardiidae, Tellinidae, and Mactridae. Staatliches Museum für Tierkunde Dresden. Mollusca, 27(2):201-208.

Abstract

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.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
