 Lirophora varicosa (G. B. Sowerby II, 1853)   Previously L. latilirata (Conrad, 1841)

Mikkelsen & Bieler, authors of Seashells of Southern Florida - Bivalves 2008, note that "Lirophora latilirata is a Miocene fossil; the living species that has been referred by this name for which we assign this name remains unnamed (P. Roopnarine, pers. comm., August 2005)."  Subsequently, the name L. varicosa (G. B. Sowerby II, 1853) has been assigned to this shell.
