A new species of Ischnochiton from the late Pleistocene of Archi S. Francesco (Reggio Calabria) is described in this paper. Valves of Ischnochiton crovatoi sp. nov. were found in the sandy-pebbly marine sediments of Archi S. Francesco (located on the left side of the Valley of the river Torbido), very rich in mollusks of infralittoral to circalittoral facies. The new species is characterized by the tegmental sculpture of head valve, lateral areas of intermediate valves and postmucronal area of tail valve consisting of nodulose radial riblets. The differences between the new specie and I. rissoi (Payraudeau, 1826) and I. zbyi Dell’Angelo & Silva, 2003 are discussed.

Abstract

A new species of Ischnochiton from the late Pleistocene of Archi S. Francesco (Reggio Calabria) is described in this paper. Valves of Ischnochiton crovatoi sp. nov. were found in the sandy-pebbly marine sediments of Archi S. Francesco (located on the left side of the Valley of the river Torbido), very rich in mollusks of infralittoral to circalittoral facies. The new species is characterized by the tegmental sculpture of head valve, lateral areas of intermediate valves and postmucronal area of tail valve consisting of nodulose radial riblets. The differences between the new specie and I. rissoi (Payraudeau, 1826) and I. zbyi Dell’Angelo & Silva, 2003 are discussed.
