Abstract: Strongly inequivalve scallops of the genus
Pecten (s.str.) are represented in the western
and central Pacific by relatively few living
forms, most of which have widely separated
distribution areas in Japanese and Australasian
seas. Their fossil record and morphological affinities
have suggested a rather unusual history
of late Cenozoic' dispersal and speciation, at
least for the majority of Western Pacific species,
which are discussed in a recent publication
(Fleming, 1957). The most isolated of all Pacific
scallops, recorded from the Hawaiian Islands as
two new species, Pecten waikikius and P. diomedeus,
by Dall, Bartsch, and Rehder (1938),
were known only from left valves, and as a consequence
their relationships have been difficult
to interpret.
