Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature The earlier name Pinctada anomioides (Reeve, 1857) has been put forward by Huber (2010: 602) as the valid name to be used for this species. However the name Pinctada maxima (Jameson, 1901) is in usage and, even if the provisions of ICZN art. 23.9 do not apply to declare it “nomen oblitum”, the case should be brought to the ICZN. Meanwhile, the name in prevailing usage is here maintained as “accepted” for this commercially important species.  [details]
