A molecular phylogeny of heterodont bivalves (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Heterodonta): new analyses of 18S and 28S rRNA genes
A new molecular phylogeny is presented for the highly diverse, bivalve molluscan subclass Heterodonta. The study, the most comprehensive for heterodonts to date, used new sequences of 18S and 28SExpand

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE LUCINOIDEA (BIVALVIA): NON‐MONOPHYLY AND SEPARATE ACQUISITION OF BACTERIAL CHEMOSYMBIOSIS
The bivalve superfamily Lucinoidea is usually considered to comprise six separate families: Lucinidae, Thyasiridae, Ungulinidae, Fimbriidae, Mactromyidae and Cyrenoididae. ChemoautotrophicExpand

Functional anatomy, chemosymbiosis and evolution of the Lucinidae
Abstract All Lucinidae species studied so far possess sulphide-oxidizing, chemosymbiotic bacteria housed in bacteriocytes of gill filaments. The ecology, functional anatomy and evolution of theExpand

Evolutionary relationships of the bivalve family Thyasiridae (Mollusca: Bivalvia), monophyly and superfamily status
Molecular analyses of 13 species of the marine bivalve family Thyasiridae, using sequences from 18S rRNA and 28S rRNA genes, showed that the family is monophyletic despite the anatomical disparityExpand

Lucinidae (Bivalvia) – the most diverse group of chemosymbiotic molluscs
Recent molecular analyses have demonstrated that the traditional Lucinoidea, comprising the extant families Lucinidae, Thyasiridae, Ungulinidae, Fimbriidae, and Cyrenoididae, is not monophyletic.Expand

Molecular phylogeny and classification of the chemosymbiotic bivalve family Lucinidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia)
A new molecular phylogeny of the chemosymbiotic bivalve family Lucinidae is presented. Using sequences from the nuclear 18S and 28S rRNA genes and the mitochondrial gene cytochrome b, 105 specimensExpand

A family-level Tree of Life for bivalves based on a Sanger-sequencing approach.
The systematics of the molluscan class Bivalvia are explored using a 5-gene Sanger-based approach including the largest taxon sampling to date, encompassing 219 ingroup species spanning 93 (or 82%)Expand

A GIANT LUCINID BIVALVE FROM THE EOCENE OF JAMAICA – SYSTEMATICS, LIFE HABITS AND CHEMOSYMBIOSIS (MOLLUSCA: BIVALVIA: LUCINIDAE)
The giant bivalve Lucina megameris Dall, 1901, from the late Eocene White Limestone Group of Jamaica and by far the largest known species of the family Lucinidae, is placed in a new genusExpand

Lucinid bivalves of Guadeloupe: diversity and systematics in the context of the tropical Western Atlantic (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Lucinidae).
Intensive sampling of molluscs from the intertidal to depths of 800 m around the islands of Guadeloupe in the Lesser Antilles (KARUBENTHOS 2012, 2015) recovered 25 species of Lucinidae. All theExpand
