Taxonomy Although Tellina vulsella Hanley, 1846 is a senior synonym, Petit (2003, p. 27) noted that "Hedley was unaware that this species had already been named 377 Tellina vulsella Hanley, 1846 but his admonition that Perry’s name should be utilized remains true. As Perry’s name was treated as valid by Hedley after 1899, and has been used in more recent years (e.g. Kira, 1964: 158; Matsukuma et al, 1991:187) it cannot be dismissed as a nomen oblitum even if Hanley’s name can be demonstrated to have been used in 25 works in the last 50 years which is very doubtful." [details]
