Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification Often credited to Linnaeus (1767) but the name is validly introduced in an erratum, p. 824, of Linnaeus (1758) "p. 679 line 62, muricatum read aculeatum", this because there is another Cardium muricatum (still in current use) on p. 680.  [details]
