The Genus Harpa Lamark (Mollusca:Gastropoda) In Northern South America

J. Gibson-Smith, W. Gibson-Smith


In a recent number of this joumal the occurrence of Harpa americana Pilsbry, 1922, in the Quebrada Camarones section of northwest Ecuador, was divulged by Pitt (1981, p. 155). It was noted that this extended the range of this taxon into the Pacific Region, previous reportings being from the Mio-Pliocene of the Caribbean only: from the Dominican Republic (type locality) by Gabb (1873, p. 214) as H. rosea Lamarck, 1816 (non Lamarck) being renamed later by Pilsbry (1922, p. 337), and from Veracruz, Mexico, by Perrilliat Montoya (1960, p. 24).
