The arguments brought forward by Van der Burg (1996) to contradict our opinion on the identification of a fossil pectinid shell with a colour pattern (Van der Burg, 1995, fig. 1) are discussed. We maintain our opinion that this shell belongs to Palliolum tigerinum (Müller, 1776), and not to P. gerardi (Nyst, 1835).
