Taxon Notes:This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
Scientific Name Notes:Streptopinna is included here as a subgenus of Pinna, following Lemer et al (2014), and it is likely that its status will be reduced to a full synonym with further genetic work on the group.
