Note 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature The first entry of Amusium into binominal scientific literature was of Röding (1798) with the type species Ostrea pleuronectes Linnaeus, 1758. Herrmannsen (1846) introduced 'Amussium' as emendation for Amusium, which was not necessary.
Afterwards several worker followed Röding or Herrmannsen. Smith and Dautzenberg & Bavay used 'Amussium' for most of the deep-water glass-scallops (now Propeamussium and Parvamussium). [details]
