Discussion / Comments:
Griffin & Nielsen (2008):
TYPE MATERIAL. Syntypes NHM-L27686 and NHM-L27685. REMARKS. Syntype NHM-L27686 is the small, broken and glued specimen figured by Sowerby (1846, pl. 2, fig. 23), showing the interior of the valve. Syntype NHM-L27685 includes two specimens, one of them a large nearly complete valve of which the hinge only was figured by Sowerby (1846, pl. 2, fig. 22). The other specimen seems to be the incomplete hinge of the opposite valve of the same specimen.
