Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Bucquoy, Dautzenberg & Dollfus (1883) designated Pleurotoma anceps Eichwald, 1830 as the type species but encompassed in their concept of this species the Recent representatives now considered a separate species Teretia teres (Forbes, 1844). Therefore, ICZN Art. 70.3 could apply. They refer to a suggestion by Bellardi that Pleurotoma anceps [the fossil species] could deserve a new genus, making preferable this option as the type species. Anyway this has no bearing on current taxonomy, where both species are considered congeneric, if not conspecific.  [details]
