An intermediate-sized Eocene carditid species from the southern North Sea Basin classically indicated as ‘ Venericardia ’ carinata Sowerby, 1820, turned out to be different than the material from the Eocene Hampshire Basin on which the taxon was based. Here we described the species that are both attributed to the genus Claibornicardia Stenzel & Krause, 1957.
