Nomenclature Oliver (2013) wrote "In the Atlantic the only other species referred to Saxicavella is S. angulata [= S. carinata of authors, not Brocchi 1814] but that species has cardinal teeth (Fig. 5C) and as noted above should be referred to the genus Basterotia.". If this is followed, the Indo-Pacific Basterotia angulata (H. Adams, 1871) becomes a secondary homonym and the earliest potentially valid name seems Basterotia caledonica (P.Fischer, 1886) [details]
