Donax bruneirufi and Donax baliregteri, Two New Deltachion from the Central Indo-Pacific (Bivalvia: Donacidae)


Huber, Markus (2012). Donax bruneirufi and Donax baliregteri, Two New Deltachion from the Central Indo-Pacific (Bivalvia: Donacidae). Conchylia, 42(1-4):97-104.

Abstract

Two new species of Donax from the central part of the Indo-Pacific are described and named after their type locality and their collectors. Both species belong to the small group of Deltachion IREDALE, 1930 which encompasses rather small, keeled, denticulated Donax. Deltachion is an Indo-Pacific subgenus, extending into South African, South Australian, and Japanese waters. The new species are compared with the Australian type species D. brazieri, and its congeners D. bipartitus, semigranosus, semisulcatus and spinosus.
