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 28S rRNA genes for 103 species from 49 family groups with species of Palaeoheterodonta (Trigoniidae, Margaritiferidae and Unionidae) as outgroups. Results confirm previous analyses that the Carditidae/Astartidae/Crassatellidae clade is basal to all other heterodonts including Anomalodesmata (often… 
Molecular phylogeny and classification of the chemosymbiotic bivalve family Lucinidae (Mollusca: Bivalvia)
TLDR
A new molecular phylogeny of the chemosymbiotic bivalve family Lucinidae is presented and membership of the Lucininae and Myrteinae is considerably revised compared with Chavan’s commonly employed ‘Treatise’ classification.
A Molecular Phylogeny of Bivalve Mollusks: Ancient Radiations and Divergences as Revealed by Mitochondrial Genes
TLDR
It is suggested that eulamellibranch gills and heterodont hinge are ancestral characters for all Autobranchia, which would entail a re-evaluation of bivalve symplesiomorphies.
Into the deep: a phylogenetic approach to the bivalve subclass Protobranchia.
Evolution of symbiosis with Lingula (Brachiopoda) in the bivalve superfamily Galeommatoidea (Heterodonta), with description of a new species of Koreamya
TLDR
The two Koreamya species with remarkably differently shaped shells were monophyletic, suggesting that their symbiotic associations with Lingula have the same evolutionary origin and the possibility of host switching between sea anemones and Lingula.
A multilocus phylogeny of archiheterodont bivalves (Mollusca, Bivalvia, Archiheterodonta)
TLDR
Strong support is recovered for the monophyly of Archiheterodonta, within which Astartidae is the sister group of Crassatellidae, and these two constitute the sister clade of Carditidae, which is paraphyletic with respect to Condylocardiidae.
New molecular phylogeny of Lucinidae: increased taxon base with focus on tropical Western Atlantic species (Mollusca: Bivalvia).
TLDR
A new molecular phylogeny of the Lucinidae using 18S and 28S rRNA and cytochrome b genes includes many species from the tropical Western Atlantic as well as additional taxa from the Indo-West Pacific and a new species of Parvilucina is identified from molecular analyses.
Taxonomy of some Galeommatoidea (Mollusca, Bivalvia) associated with deep-sea echinoids
TLDR
It is concluded that the two species are not conspecific and that K. symmetros cannot be placed in the genus Axinodon, although it is probable that this genus belongs to the Thyasiridae.

Evolutionary relationships of the bivalve family Thyasiridae (Mollusca: Bivalvia), monophyly and superfamily status
TLDR
Molecular analyses of 13 species of the marine bivalve family Thyasiridae showed that the family is monophyletic despite the anatomical disparity and inclusion of both chemosymbiotics and asymbiotic species, and elevated the rank to superfamily Thyasiroidea.
Molecular phylogeny of Anomalodesmata (Mollusca: Bivalvia) inferred from 18S rRNA sequences
TLDR
Tests of various alternative topologies showed that all are significantly longer but optimal likelihood trees with monophyletic carnivorous taxa and/or Thraciidae are not significantly less likely andPalaeontological data and homology decisions for selected characters are evaluated in the light of the molecular trees.
Molecular phylogeny of the Bivalvia inferred from 18S rDNA sequences with particular reference to the Pteriomorphia
TLDR
A phylogenetic hypothesis is proposed showing Mytiloidea and Arcoidea as the basal pteriomorph groups, the latter giving rise to the clade uniting the pinnoid-ostreoid-pterioid and the anomioid-limoid-pectinoid lines.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE LUCINOIDEA (BIVALVIA): NON‐MONOPHYLY AND SEPARATE ACQUISITION OF BACTERIAL CHEMOSYMBIOSIS
TLDR
The implication of non-monophyly of the superfamily Lucinoidea is that Thyasiridae represent an independent acquisition of bacterial chemosymbiosis and this is reflected in major morphological differences from the Lucinidae.
Phylogeny of giant clams (Cardiidae: Tridacninae) based on partial mitochondrial 16S rDNA gene sequences.
TLDR
The first DNA molecular phylogenetic analysis of giant clams was performed and the resulting phylogenetic hypothesis indicates that the genera Hippopus and Tridacna are monophyletic sister taxa.
Phylogeny of Veneroidea (Mollusca: Bivalvia) based on morphology and molecules
TLDR
New phylogenetic analyses on 114 taxa tested the monophyly of Veneroidea, Veneridae, and 17 nominal venerid subfamilies, using morphological and molecular data and molecular sequences from mitochondrial (16S, cytochrome oxidase I) and nuclear (28S, histone 3) genes.
Phylogenetic structure of the Sphaeriinae, a global clade of freshwater bivalve molluscs, inferred from nuclear (ITS-1) and mitochondrial (16S) ribosomal gene sequences
TLDR
This work reconstructed phylogenetic relationships of the Sphaeriinae, a cosmopolitan sphaeriid subfamily, using variation in nuclear ribosomal first internal transcribed spacer (ITS-1) and mitochondrial large Ribosomal subunit (16S) gene fragments to revise current sphaerine taxonomy.
Cladistic perspectives on early bivalve evolution
TLDR
Parsimony analysis suggests derivation of the Bivalvia from monoplacophorans rather than from rostroconchs, and indicates that a phylogenetic classification of the Heteroconchia can be achieved by erecting the superorder Nuculaniformii nov.
Molecular data from the 16S rRNA gene for the phylogeny of Veneridae (Mollusca: Bivalvia)
TLDR
The results obtained using the maximum-parsimony and neighbour-joining methods indicate that the current placement of the genera into subfamilies does not always reflect a natural subdivision of the family.
Sphaeriid and corbiculid clams represent separate heterodont bivalve radiations into freshwater environments.
TLDR
This work constructed a representative molecular phylogeny, based on domains D1-D3 of the nuclear large subunit 28S rDNA, for 18 heterodont bivalves and for two oyster outgroup taxa, and found that the results do not support the monophyly of the Corbiculoidea and are consistent with the hypothesis that all three families of freshwaterheterodonts represent independent colonization events by marine ancestors.
