Taxonomic remark Iredale (1929) established Quidnipagus and Quidnipagus palatam with the following statement: "As the species [Cochlea palatam Martyn, 1787 {unavailable name}] cannot be classed in Tellina (s. str.), a different generic name Quidnipagus is here proposed, naming Martyn's Cochlea palatam as type". Several authors (e.g. Oliver, 1992) consider that Iredale introduced Quidnipagus as a subgenus of Tellina. However, because Iredale used the words "generic name" rather than "subgeneric name", I preferred to follow here the interpretation that Quidnipagus was established as a genus.  [details]

Taxonomic remark Iredale (1929) established Quidnipagus and Quidnipagus palatam with the following statement: "As the species [Cochlea palatam Martyn, 1787 {unavailable name}] cannot be classed in Tellina (s. str.), a different generic name Quidnipagus is here proposed, naming Martyn's Cochlea palatam as type". Several authors (e.g. Oliver, 1992) consider that Iredale introduced Quidnipagus as a subgenus of Tellina. However, because Iredale used the words "generic name" rather than "subgeneric name", I preferred to follow here the interpretation that Quidnipagus was established as a genus.  [details]
