Strophomena imbrex semiglobosina

Strophomenata - Strophomenida - Rafinesquinidae

Strophomena imbrex semiglobosina was named by Davidson (1870).

It was recombined as Rafinesquina (Playfairia) semiglobosina by Reed (1917); it was recombined as Dactylogonia semiglobosina by Williams (1962) and Candela and Harper (2014).

If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

F. R. C. Reed 1917Shell subquadrate to semielliptical, strongly concavo-convex; valves closely appressed, sometimes subauriculate; hinge-line equal to (rarely less than) maximum width of shell; cardinal angles usually rectangular. Pedicle-valve swollen, moderately to strongly convex, not geniculated but regularly arched; lateral angles sometimes flattened; beak small, not much incurved; hinge-area triangular, rather narrow, steeply inclined to plane of valve, with triangular delthyrium. Interior of pedicle-valve with small subcircular forked muscle-scar, well defined at sides, less than one-fourth the length of valve, composed of two flabellate diductors divergent anteriorly, with narrow elongate adductor scar between them; teeth small. Brachial valve regularly concave, with inconspicuous beak and narrow hinge-area nearly at right angles to plane of valve. Interior of brachial valve with strong submarginal thickening coarsely corrugated radially; cardinal process large, thick, prominent, bilobed, deeply cleft to base, with grooved subtriangular face to each lobe; crural plates stout, thickened, continued round posterior adductors; muscle-scars deeply sunk; posterior adductors transverse, subcircular; anterior adductors elongate, forming much narrower less-defined scar in front. Ovarian areas closely pitted. Shell finely punctate. Surface of shell covered with 30-50 primary thread-like regular equidistant equal riblets, with usually a secondary one arising in each interspace at half their length midway between them; primaries and secondaries all equal in strength and equidistant on margin; 3-7 much finer radial lines in each interspace between primaries and secondaries; short concentric corrugations near hinge-line sometimes present.
