Note Huber [2010, Compendium of bivalves: 71]...  
Type species Huber [2010, Compendium of bivalves: 71] argued that Meek's designation
was invalid because Poli supposedly included Venus chione in Callistoderma, not in Callista. He thus treated Callista as a genus without originally included species, and designated Callista coccinea Poli, 1795 [established, without description, for the animal occupying the shell of Venus chione] as type species. [details]
