Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Stoliczka (1871, Cretaceous fauna of southern India. Pelecypoda: xvi) designated Mactra striatella Lamarck, 1818, as type species, but this designation was invalid, as the latter was not an originally included species. Dall (1898, Transactions of the Wagner Free Institute of Philadelphia, 3(4): 886-887) validly fixed Mactra fragilis Gmelin, 1791, as type species, which makes Standella a senior objective synonym of Mactrotoma; see Petit (2012, Zootaxa 3214: 95. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Gray originally included in Standella two nominal species, S. fragilis and S. aegyptiaca [without author/date]. The type species fixation is discussed by Petit [2012, Zootaxa, 3214: 95], who accepted that Dall [1898, Transactions of the Wagner Free Institute of Philadelphia, 3(4): 886-887] had fixed Mactra fragilis Gmelin, 1791. However, Huber [2015, Compendium of bivalves 2: 834] argued that Gray's description of Standella fragilis applied to M. pellucida Gmelin, 1791, and not to M. fragilis Gmelin, 1791, and under Art. 70.3 he fixed "Spisula fragilis Gray, 1853 (= Mactra pellucida Gmelin, 1791) non Mactra fragilis Gmelin, 1791", as type species of Standella[details]
