The solution, of course, in order to be formal, requires detailed studies on type, topotype and additional materials, and we must proceed on that soon, but it is not the scope for this contribution.
A review of the type series indicates that the lectotype (one articulated specimen, BM3281) and syntype (the two separated valves of the same specimen, BM3282) correspond to different sediments than those of the topotype, L9744 (Mongin, 1961: plate 15).

The UGA/27/70 and UGA/2/97 viruses were assigned to topotypes V and VI, respectively (5); because the UGA/1/13 is [approximately equal to] 20% different from these strains, it could be designated as a new topotype.
Of 5 outbreaks in South Korea during 2000-2011, 4 were caused by type O virus, 2 were caused by the Middle East-South Asia topotype, and 2 were caused by the Southeast Asia topotype.
From the studied collection it is likely that the holotype of Xerxespirifer iranicus is within the margins of significant morphological variability characteristic of Stegocornu procerum, but additional study based on the topotype material is still required to resolve the problem of taxonomic relationships between Stegocornu and Xerxespirifer.
Analysis showed that FMDVs causing serotype O outbreaks form 2 genetic clusters related to viruses within the Southeast Asia topotype (O/SEA/Mya-98 lineage), which are usually restricted to mainland Southeast Asia (online Appendix Figure, panel B).
