From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender should be masculine in application of Art. 30.2 of ICZN; Römer did not make any specification on grammatical gender except for a statement that he had taken the name from Adanson's (1757) "le Pitar", which is masculine; otherwise if gender of an arbitrary combination of letters is not specified it should anyway be treated as masculine. Nevertheless there is an extensive usage for the name in feminine gender, Poirier (1954, "An up-to-date systematic list of 3200 seashells from Greenland to Texas: translation, explanation, and gender of their names") wrote "Every conchologist, however, considers Pitar as feminine, and I would not change the gender of this arbitrarily formed word."
