misapplication Severeyn H.J., Garcia de Severeyn Y. & Ewald J.J. (1994) Taxonomic revision of <i>Polymesoda solida</i> (Philippi, 1846) (Bivalvia: Corbiculidae), a new name for <i>Polymesoda arctata</i>, the estuarine clam of Lake Maracaibo and other estuaries of the tropical Atlantic coasts of America. <i>Ciencia</i> [<i>Revista cientifica de la Facultad Experimental de Ciencias</i> (Maracaibo, Venezuela)] 2(2): 53-65., available online at http://revistas.luz.edu.ve/index.php/cien/article/view/5400/5249
note: According to Huber (2015: 797), Severeyn et al. misidentified Polymesoda solida; it is not an earlier name for P. arctata; also it is preoccupied by Dunker, 1843. [details]
