Abstract

Recent Pectinoidea (Propeamussiidae, Cyclochlamydidae and Pectinidae) of Australia and neighbouring seas are revised and 105 pectinoidean species (30 species of Propeamussiidae, 2 of Cyclochlamydidae and 73 of Pectinidae) are recorded and compared with similar species from the tropical Indo-West Pacific and temperate Australasian regions. Seven species (five Propeamussiidae: Parvamussium lamprelli, P. slacksmithae, P. whissoni, Cyclopecten reticulatus, Similipecten colmani, and two Pectinidae: Hyalopecten ponderi, Mimachlamys spinicostata) are newly named. A further 29 species (12 Propeamussiidae and 17 Pectinidae) are new records from Australia. Subfamily Pedinae Bronn, 1862 and tribe Pedini have priority over subfamily Chlamydinae von Teppner, 1922 and tribe Chlamydini, and are adopted. The following taxa are newly synonymized: Amussium electrum Pelseneer, 1911 = Propeamussium caducum (Smith, 1885), Amussium scrobiculatum Schepman, 1908 = Juxtamusium maldivense (Smith, 1903), Pecten lentiginosus Reeve, 1853 and Mimachlamys gavena Iredale, 1939 = Mimachlamys punctata (Gmelin, 1791), Pecten ustulatus Reeve, 1853 = Mimachlamys gloriosa (Reeve, 1853). Lectotypes are designated for Pecten superbus G. B. Sowerby II, 1842, Annachlamys leopardus rena Iredale, 1939, Pecten reevei A. Adams & Reeve, 1850, P. macassarensis Chenu, 1845, P. amaliae Kobelt, 1887, P. irregularis G. B. Sowerby II, 1842, P. cuneatus Reeve, 1853, Mimachlamys deliciosa Iredale, 1939, O. punctata Gmelin, 1791, Chlamys wilhelminae maculata Bavay, 1904, Pecten bednalli Tate, 1887, P. challengeri Smith, 1891, P. albolineatus G. B. Sowerby II, 1842, and P. lentiginosus Reeve, 1853. Neotypes are designated for Amusium magneticum Röding, 1798, Ostrea pedum Röding, 1798, Pleuronectia laevigata Swainson, 1840, Pecten funebris Reeve, 1853, Pecten roseopunctatus Reeve, 1853, P. elegantissimus Deshayes, 1863, P. quadriliratus Lischke, 1870, and Pecten (Amussium) milneedwardsi Gregorio, 1898, and Mesopeplum caroli Iredale, 1929. A new combination is introduced for Mimachlamys punctata (Gmelin, 1791) (= Pecten lentiginosus Reeve, 1853).
