Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Römer described this species under the genus Murcia, section Anomalocardia. In the original publication the name appears as "A. membranula", which has been often interpreted as denoting combination with Anomalocardia. However, this is the only instance in that work where the abbreviated generic name for a species seems to be that of the Section rather than the Genus. I believe this indicates a lapsus calami and that the original spelling should consequently be corrected to "Murcia membranula", following ICZN article 32.5. [details]
