Nomenclature Contradictory to earlier opinions, the name Turritella concava Hutton, 1877 is not pre-occupied within Turritellidae, as Say's name (1826) refers to a species of Terebridae, and J. de C. Sowerby's name (1829) to a species of Cerithidae. As such, Finlay's 1924 replacement name becomes invalid. [details]
