From editor or global species database
Authority The name is usually credited to Lamarck but it appears only as a vernacular "Donacille", without a description, in Extrait du cours de zoologie... (1812: 107). It is mentioned (again as vernacular "donacille") in Animaux sans vert├Ębres (1818, vol. 5 p. 489) in synonymy of Amphidesma where one of the included species is named A. donacilla. The name has been latinized by de Blainville (1819) in Dictionnaire des Sciences Naturelles, vol, 13 p. 428, without a description but with reference to both of these works where Amphidesma donacilla could have been taken as type species by absolute tautonymy. However Opinion 1141 of ICZN (Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature, 36 (1979): 122-124) has suppressed Donacilla Blainville, 1819 and placed Donacilla Philippi, 1836 on the official list with D. lamarckii as type species.  [details]
