The origin of the anomalodesmatan bivalves and the relationships of the constituent families are far from being settled. Phylogenetic uncertainties result from the morphological heterogeneity of the Anomalodesmata and from parallel/convergent evolution of several character complexes due to similar life habits. Here, we assess these problems with 26 near-complete anomalodesmatan 18S rRNA sequences from 12 out of 15 families and a selection of heteroconch outgroup taxa. The robustly monophyletic… Expand
A molecular phylogeny of heterodont bivalves (Mollusca: Bivalvia: Heterodonta): new analyses of 18S and 28S rRNA genes
TLDR
A new molecular phylogeny is presented for the highly diverse, bivalve molluscan subclass Heterodonta, indicating that the basal clades of Crassatelloidea, Anomalodesmata and Lucinoidea diverged very early in the Lower Palaeozoic. Expand
Reconstructing the Anomalodesmata (Mollusca: Bivalvia): morphology and molecules
TLDR
The results of an enhanced analysis of 32 anomalodesmatan species indicate the need for a re-distribution of the families traditionally placed in the Thracioidea and Pandoroidea into a 'thraciid' lineage and a 'lyonsiids' lineage. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
The Complete Mitochondrial Genomes of Six Heterodont Bivalves (Tellinoidea and Solenoidea): Variable Gene Arrangements and Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
Comparisons of mitochondrial genomes of six species belonging to Heterodonta support that comparisons of mt gene order rearrangements, to some extent, are a useful tool for phylogenetic studies. Expand
Spermatozoa of the Anomalodesmata (Bivalvia, Mollusca) with special reference to relationships within the group
TLDR
Results for C. latesulcata suggest septibranch origins before the development of a posteriorly positioned acrosomal complex and mitochondrial asymmetry, congruent with the most recent phylogenetic analyses that recognize distinct 'thraciid' and 'lyonsiid" clades. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of four nuclear protein-encoding genes largely corroborates the traditional classification of Bivalvia (Mollusca).
TLDR
The utility of four nuclear protein-encoding genes-ATP synthase β, elongation factor-1α, myosin heavy chain type II, and RNA polymerase II-for resolving the basal relationships of Bivalvia are evaluated and the stability of the basal tree topology to dataset manipulation is indicative of signal robustness in these four genes.

Sticky bivalves from the Mesozoic: clues to the origin of the anomalodesmatan arenophilic system
TLDR
Instances of preserved secretion in fossil Pholadomya, ranging in age almost to the initial appearance of the genus in the Late Triassic, suggest that fossilized arenophilic secretion may aid systematic studies of problematic fossil groups traditionally included in Anomalodesmata. Expand
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. Expand

Abstract Although ancient anomalodesmatans were apparently abundant shallow and deep burrowers, in Recent seas the subclass comprises some of the most specialized rarest of all bivalves. TheExpand
A molecular phylogeny of Heterodonta (Bivalvia) based on small ribosomal subunit RNA sequences.
TLDR
Molecular data clearly show that the Myoida species included in this study belong to Veneroida, thus undermining the legitimacy of the division of Heterodonta into two orders, and that considerable differences in the phylogenetic relationships obtain among superfamilies. Expand
Investigation of molluscan phylogeny on the basis of 18S rRNA sequences.
TLDR
These data do not provide support for a close relationship between Platyhelminthes (Turbellaria) and Mollusca, but suggest that the latter group belongs to a clade of eutrochozoan coelomates, and obtain strong preliminary support for phylogenetic inferences at more restricted taxonomic levels.

TLDR
A phylogenetic reconstruction based on 506 nucleotides near the 5' end of the 18S subunit of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) in 2 gastropod, 3 chiton and 28 bivalve mollusks could not confidently establish either the monophyly or the phylogenetic relationships of the morphologically well defined subclasses Pteriomorphia, Protobranchia, and Anomalodesmata.

TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses including nearly complete bivalve small-subunit rRNA sequences demonstrate support for the monophyly of the family Mytilidae and the subfamilies Crenellinae and Lithophaginae, however, theSubfamilies Mytilinee and Modiolinae appear polyphyletic. Expand

TLDR
The 18S rDNA data reject the Diasoma in favour of a Scaphopoda–Cephalopoda clade as proposed in the helcionellid concept, and there is no support for the families Dentaliidae and Gadilidae. Expand
