Dr. Philippe Bouchet, Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris, kindly brought to my attention that the name ModestellaHautmann, 2001, which I introduced for a Triassic trigonoid bivalve genus (type species: Trigonia zlambachensisHaas, 1909), is preoccupied by Modestella Owen (inCasey), 1961 (Brachiopoda, Terebratulida). I therefore propose to replace ModestellaHautmann, 2001 by the new name Modesticoncha. The new name derives from the combination modestus (Latin) = modest, referring to the lack of ornamentation, and concha (Latin) = shell.
