Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature The earlier name Cardita rufescens Lamarck, 1819 has been put forward by Huber (2010: 653) as the valid name to be used for this species. However the name Cardita senegalensis Reeve, 1843 is in usage, including in palaeontological literature on Quaternary warm-water fauna, and the provisions of ICZN art. 23.9 may apply. Awaiting either confirmation that the requirements of this article are met, and formal declaration of respectively “nomen oblitum” and “nomen protectum”, or bringing the case to the ICZN, the name in prevailing usage is here maintained as “accepted”.  [details]
