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 may apply. Awaiting either confirmation that the requirements of this article are met, and formal declaration of respectively “nomen oblitum” and “nomen protectum”, or bringing the case to the ICZN, the name in prevailing usage is here maintained as “accepted”.  [details]
