This dataset is a paper from Richard E. Grant (1983) describing a new species of brachiopod, Argyrotheca arguta, from the Marshall Islands.
Argyrotheca arguta is characterized by small size (maximum width 2.8 mm), white, clear or translucent shell, and weak to absent costae. It occupies cryptic habitats under coral fronds or in recesses, and has been found on the seaside and the lagoon side of the reefs at Enewetak and Bikini atolls.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 6 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
