During the Rumphius Biohistorical Expedition (1990) to Ambon 17 Pectinidae species were collected, nine of which were described by Rumphius (1705) and five illustrated by Rumphius. One species, viz. Decatopecten plica (Linnaeus, 1758), illustrated in Rumphius (1705: pl. 44, fig. O), has not been refound. No decisive evidence is found of Rumphius' pectinids kept in either the Gualtieri collection at Calci, or in the Naturhistorisches Museum at Vienna.
