From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Neuter, as based on the greek noun πέρας, meaning end or limit, which is neuter, Authors generally treat this name (which means "acute end") as feminine, possibly because it is commonly combined with specific epithets originally described as Mactra or Spisula, but this is incorrect. Only Glibert & van de Poel (1970) seem to have noticed the correct gender.  [details]
