About this book

Language: Italian

Volume 5 describes 117 fossil shell species from the superfamily Caenogastropoda.

Every species is accompanied by the original name and the book’s title where the author described it. This is followed by a large bibliography, the distinguishing characteristics, and, where possible, the original diagnosis. Also included is a list of the fossil beds and their temporal and spatial distribution. Finally. observations on similar species and comments on nomenclature and ecological spaces are given. There are alphabetic indices by species name and generic and subgeneric name. The bibliography lists 233 titles. Four new species are described: Chiton capecchii, Clanculus bonfittoi, Gibbula verae, and Skenea bogii.

Malacofauna Pliocenica Toscana isn't only a series dealing with Tuscany's Pliocene fossil shells: it starts from Tuscany's Pliocenic Malacofauna and links it to Miocene, Pliocene, Pleistocene European fossil shells and the current Malacofauna of the Mediterranean Sea.
