Taxonomy Divalinga quadrisulcata is usually claimed as having a huge latitudinal range (ca
42°N to 27°S) in the north from Nahant, Massachussets to Ilha de Santa Catarina in southern Brazil (Britton 1970;
Bretsky 1975) including the Bahamas, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. However, we suspect that two similar
species may be confounded together. Shells from the northern part of the range at localities along the eastern coast
of the USA from northern Florida to Massachussets differ from the syntypes and other Caribbean samples. The
divaricating ribs of the northern shells are narrower and more closely spaced (Fig. 24), the ligament and escutcheon
is relatively longer and straighter and the anterior adductor muscle scar is slightly less detached from the pallial
line. There is a name available for the northern form and this is Lucina strigilla Stimpson, 1851, described from
Nantucket, the type is lost but named specimens from North Carolina with labels in Stimpson’s handwriting exist in
the USNM 24669 and NHMUK 1861.6.15.5 (Fig. 24). The two putative species overlap in Florida; shells
conforming to D. quadrisulcata occur in the Florida Keys (NHMUK collections) and from Bahamas (Redfern
2013, fig. 1034). Further study of the species and with molecular sampling across the range is needed to confirm or
refute the existence of two species. (Taylor & Glover 2016) [details]

Taxonomy Divalinga quadrisulcata is usually claimed as having a huge latitudinal range (ca
42°N to 27°S) in the north from Nahant, Massachussets to Ilha de Santa Catarina in southern Brazil (Britton 1970;
Bretsky 1975) including the Bahamas, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. However, we suspect that two similar
species may be confounded together. Shells from the northern part of the range at localities along the eastern coast
of the USA from northern Florida to Massachussets differ from the syntypes and other Caribbean samples. The
divaricating ribs of the northern shells are narrower and more closely spaced (Fig. 24), the ligament and escutcheon
is relatively longer and straighter and the anterior adductor muscle scar is slightly less detached from the pallial
