A note of the nomenclature of the West African mangrove oyster


The West African mangrove oyster has a considerable economic potential and is currently
engaging research attention in this country. This paper discusses the confused nomenclature
of the species. Reasons are given for the preference for the generic name Crassostrea to
Ostrea and Gryphaea, and the specific name tulipa to gasar. It is concluded that the
nomenclature of this oyster should be Crassostrea tutipa (Lamarck, 1819)
