Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature The earlier name Flexopecten coarctatus (Born, 1778) has been put forward by Huber (2010: 625) as the valid name to be used for this species. However the name Flexopecten flexuosus is in usage and the provisions of ICZN art. 23.9 apply. This has been declared “nomen oblitum” and Ostrea flexuuosa Poli, 1795 “nomen protectum”, by Cosel et al. (2014).  [details]
