This dataset is from a paper by Emilio Garcia (2004) which is the third part of a study of Indo-Pacific Epitoniidae in which extensions of known geographical ranges of a number of species and the description of new species is reported (Garcia, 2003, Garcia, 2004). The present article deals with epitoniid species placed in the genus Cycloscala Dali, 1889. The material used in these reports was obtained as a result of expeditions by the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD, Nouméa) and the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle (MNHN, Paris).
All described Indo-Pacific taxa referable to the epitoniid genus Cycloscala Dali, 1889 are listed and evaluated. The type species, Cycloscala echinaticosta (d'Orbigny, 1842) is discussed. Four described Indo-Pacific Cycloscala species, considered valid herewith, are treated: Cycloscala crenulata Pease, 1867; C. gazae Kilbum, 1985; C. hyalina Sowerby II, 1844; and C. revoluta Hedley, 1899.
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 52 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.
