Atlanta lesueurii J.E. Gray, 1850 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, pterotracheoidea, atlantidae): specific name conserved
Abstract

The specific name of the heteropod Atlanta lesueurii J.E. Gray, 1850 (atlantidae), originally published as a primary homonym of the pteropod Atlanta lesueurii d'Orbigny, 1836 (currently Limacina lesueurii), is hereby conserved by ruling that the name is not invalid by reason of being a junior primary homonym.
