Spelling Specific name spelled paulucciae by most subsequent authors but in the original description this is clearly treated as a name in apposition, not a genitive (in the same work, Aradas & Benoit used also this construction for Mactra targioni). The emendation has the status of unjustified emendation (ICZN art. 33.2) in Locard (1890) who cites both spellings and uses paulucciae, but is merely an incorrect subsequent spelling (ICZN art. 33.3) in other cases (e.g. Monterosato, 1878)  [details]
