Growth lamellae on the left valve of the type species of Aviculopecten M'Coy are shown to swing ventrally in interspaces between costae, not dorsally as stated by Newell (1938). Therefore the genus is possibly closely allied to Limipecten Girty (1904). Some of the species referred by Newell (1938) to Aviculopecten should be reassigned to Heteropecten Kegel & Costa (1951) and some of the others to Etheripecten Waterhouse (1963).
