Species Ostrea transitoria Hupé 1854

Alternative name:
Ostrea (Ostrea) transitoria Hupé 1854
Discussion / Comments:
Griffin & Nielsen (2008):
TYPE MATERIAL. There are 21 syntypes of this nominal species in the Collection of the Laboratoire de Géologie in the MNHN in Paris, under numbers MNHN-Gg2002/90. As discussed under Ostrea rostrata, syntypes of this latter species might be included in these 21 syntypes. REMARKS. This species is based on juveniles of Ostrea maxima but O. maxima is a junior primary homonym of O. maxima Linnaeus, 1758 so O. transitoria must be used for this species. See entries under maxima Hupé, 1854 [Ostrea] and rostrata Hupé, 1854 [Ostrea] herein.
