Abstract

Seventy-one bivalve species, including fifteen new species living in the waters of Easter and Salas y Gómez Islands are herein described: Nuculana (s.l.) anakena sp. nov., Lasaea eastera sp. nov., Borniola pasca sp. nov., Hyalokellia tahaia sp. nov., Tellimya pauciradiata sp. nov., Tellimya tahaia sp. nov., Thecodonta rainesi sp. nov., Acrosterigma triangulare sp. nov., Herouvalia rapanui sp. nov., Moerella laperousea sp. nov., Abranda lamprelli sp. nov., Timoclea keegani sp. nov., Hyphantosoma crassum sp. nov., Hyphantosoma tenue sp. nov. and Austroneaera eastera sp. nov. Illustrated for the first time is the type material of Tindaria salaria Dall, 1908. Results of this study also revise previously accepted levels of endemicity as well as species affiliation with other biogeographical areas.

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.
