Description

Biology

Etymology

  • Clenchi. In honor to Dr. William James Clench, (1897-1984), Curator of Molluscs between 1926-66 at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, USA. He founded (1941) and edited “Johnsonia” (named for Charles Willison Johnson). Although, Clench himself mainly was interested in freshwater and land molluscs, he also published rather much on marine molluscs and had several well-known students, who worked on marine fauna (Rehder, Tucker Abbott, Ruth Turner, Rosewater, Robert Robertson, etc.).
