Abstract

Scarabino V. & Scarabino F. 2010. — A new genus and thirteen new species of Scaphopoda (Mollusca) from the tropical Pacific Ocean. Zoosystema 32 (3): 409-423.

A new genus and 13 new species of Scaphopoda (ten Dentaliida and three Gadilida) are described from the tropical Pacific Ocean in the Coral Sea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Wallis Island and Tonga. The new genus is named Boissevainia n. gen. and the new species are Paradentalium choneides n. sp., P. danielleae n. sp., Fustiaria electra n. sp., F. diaphana n. sp., Gadilina lauensis n. sp., Episiphon joanae n. sp., E. wallisi n. sp., E. indefensum n. sp., E. kantori n. sp., E. lacteum n. sp. (Dentaliida); Bathoxiphus kathieae n. sp., Annulipusellum aenigmaticum n. sp. and Boissevainia mossiae n. gen., n. sp. (Gadilida). The new taxa not only highlight the diversity of the class in the tropical Pacific Ocean, but also indicate the presence of morphologies not yet recorded for the region or described for the class.
