A new Tudora from Venezuela

In the most recent number of Basteria Hovestadt published a short paper on the Peninsula de Paraguaná in Venezuela, describing a new Annulariid species: Tudora paraguanensis. The new species is the first record of Tudora from the South American mainland, and although the collected specimens are regarded as ‘subfossil’, it cannot be excluded that the finding of living specimens is possible.
