Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Records of Lunatia fusca, Lunatia pallida and Lunatia montagui are only known from older literature (de Malzine, 1867; Colbeau, 1868; Pelseneer, 1881;, Maitland, 1897; Vonck, 1933). They are possibly completely or partly based on wrong identifications of fossil species that also occur at the Belgian coast. [details]
