Taxonomy of tropical west african bivalves ii. psammobiidae



Taxonomy of tropical west african bivalves ii. psammobiidae



Bulletin du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle Section A Zoologie Biologie et Ecologie Animales 11(4): 693-732



Of the eleven known Eastern Atlantic species of the bivalve family Psammobiidae, five are members of the European fauna and are also found in more or less long ranges on the coast of tropical West Africa. Four species are restricted to the West African tropical zone, one is exclusively European and one is only known from a small coastal strip of Northern Angola, and from Cote d'Ivoire. Gari jousseaumeana Bertin, 1880, G. depressa (Pennant, 1777), G. costulata (Turton, 1810) seem to have a disjunct distribution with a probable distribution gap within the tropical zone. Three species are new: Gari pseudoweinkauffi n. sp. from infralittoral sandy bottom, hitherto misidentified with the Red Sea species G. weinkauffi (Crosse, 1864), G. gofasi n. sp. from infralittoral sandy bottom of the West African tropical zone, and Sanguinolaria africana n. sp. also from tropical West Africa and hitherto confounded with the Caribbean S. sanguinolenta (Gmelin, 1791). [Other species described are G. fervensis, G. intermedia, G. castrensis, G. tellinella and Heterodonax parvus.].
