Nomenclature The taxonomy for this species here follows Severeyn et al. (1994). However, these authors used as valid the name "Polymesoda solida (Philippi, 1846)" because they did not correctly date the primary homonym Cyrena soplida Dunker, 1843, which invalidates the name Cyrena solida Philippi, 1847.
