Abstract

An article published last year in this journal (Ferreira et al., 2023) advocated the use of the name Crassostrea gasar (Dillwyn, 1817) for an amphi-Atlantic mangrove oyster. We challenge this terminology, which is not supported by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, and defend the status quo accepting the name Crassostrea tulipa (Lamarck, 1819).
