Thyasira ockelmanni (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Veneroidea), A new species of Thyasiridae from the Norwegian Sea
MetadataShow full item record
A new species of Thyasiridae, Thyasira ockelmanni n.sp. is described from the abyssal depths of the Norwegian Sea. The generic assignment is tentative and possible alternatives are discussed. The new species has some resemblance to Thyasira subovata (Jeffreys, 1881) and Adontorhina similis Barry & McCormack, 2007, but the posterior outline is rounded and not angulate or truncate as in these species.
