New information on Pleurolucina hendersoni (Britton, 1972) (Bivalvia, Lucinidae) from the Dutch island of St. Eustatius, West Indies
Basteria , Volume 80 - Issue 4/6 p. 157- 160
Pleurolucina hendersoni is a West Indian lucinid, of which virtually no records exist other than that of the species description. In 2015, two valves of the species were found in shallow water off St. Eustatius, in contrast to the type material, which was from c. 100–220 m depth. Both 2015 valves exceed the maximumknown size, and one has a predation drill hole. Comments are made on these valves and also on valves that the senior author found in beach drift on St. Kitts. The authors speculate about possible habitat preferences.
