Lucinidae – Codakiinae: Lucinoma yoshidai Habe, 1958 (‘Yoshida’s lucine’)

Synonym(s): yoshidai Habe, 1958.

Typical shell-length not yet determined. Lives in offshore waters. Native. Occurs in southeastern Australia (TAS only); also Japan. In Tasmanian waters, this species is currently known only from a single record (unverified by SG) offshore from the southeast coast; however, it may refer to a different species since Tasmania is well beyond the normal range for this species.
