(A.) acuteplicatus (Alth, 1850), L. (A.) subinflexus nom.nov., L. (A.) subaratus (Nilsson, 1827), L. (A.) sarumensis (Woods, 1902) (L. (A?) ternatus (Muenster in Goldfuss, 1838), L. (A?) trigeminatus (Goldfuss, 1833), Lyropecten? Septemplicatus (Nilsson, 1827)L. (A.) subinflexus is a new name for Pecten inflexus Von Hagenow, 1842, non Poli in Lamarck, 1818.L.
