oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Designation of lectotype and type locality for Haliotis rugosa Lamarck, 1822 (Mollusca: Gastropoda: Haliotidae)

Volume 31, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



A lectotype for Haliotis rugosa Lamarck, 1822, is designated. Conspecific material has been collected in the Mascarene Islands. The Mahebourg area of Mauritius is designated as type locality. The taxon appears to be a Mascarene endemic, but the possibility that it is a synonym of, and an earlier name for, H. pustulata Reeve, 1846, needs to be investigated.
