Nomenclator of Bivalve Families with a Classification of Bivalve Families

  title={Nomenclator of Bivalve Families with a Classification of Bivalve Families},
  author={Philippe Bouchet and Jean-Pierre Rocroi and R{\"u}diger Bieler and Joseph G. Carter and Eugene V. Coan},
ABSTRACT Some 1,048 names at the rank of subtribe, tribe, subfamily, family and superfamily have been proposed for Recent and fossil bivalves. All names are listed in a nomenclator giving full bibliographical reference, date of publication, type genus, and their nomenclatural availability and validity under the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Another 274 names, established for categories above the family-group are listed separately. A working classification attempts to group all… 
Family-group names in Coleoptera (Insecta)
A catalogue of 4887 family-group names based on 4707 distinct genera in Coleoptera is given, which recognizes as valid 24 superfamilies, 211 families, 541 subfamilies, 1663 tribes and 740 subtribes.
Annotated nomenclator of extant and fossil taxa of the Paludomidae (Caenogastropoda, Cerithioidea)
This nomenclator provides bibliographic details on all names in the family-, genus-, and species-group of the the family Paludomidae, including junior homonyms and objective junior synonyms as well as unavailable names such as nomina nuda, infrasubspecific names and, to some extent, incorrect subsequent spellings.
Re-analysis confirms the polyphyly of Lamprotula Simpson, 1900 (Bivalvia: Unionidae)
Zhou et al. (2007, Acta Zoologica Sinica, 53: 1024–1030) reported the eastern Asian freshwater mussel genus Lamproula sensu lato Simpson, 1900 (Unionidae) to be polyphyletic and advocated a revision
Superspecific Taxonomy of the Far Eastern Unionids (Bivalvia, Unionidae): Review and Analysis
A critical analysis of the subspecies taxonomy of the Far Eastern Unionidae Rafinesque, 1820 has been performed and it is noted that the previously described subfamily Nodulariinae Starobogatov et Zatrawkin, 1987 can be regarded as the tribe Nodularityiini.
Comprehensive Database on Induan (Lower Triassic) to Sinemurian (Lower Jurassic) Marine Bivalve Genera and Their Paleobiogeographic Record
This was a critical time for bivalve evolution and diversification, which began with the recovery from the Permian—Triassic extinction and ended with the Recovery from the Triassic—Jurassic extinction.
Rudist classification for the revised Bivalvia volumes of the 'Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology'
An updated phylogenetic classification of rudist bivalves is proposed for the revised Bivalvia volumes of the 'Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology', leaving 8 poorly known genera as incertae sedis.
Bivalve molluscs of the subfamily Sphaeriinae in the Kama region waterbodies (the Middle Urals, Russia)

An annotated and illustrated check-list of species of the subfamily Sphaeriinae (family Sphaeriidae) of the Kama region (the Middle Urals, Russia), with enumeration of species’ localities, is
Spheniopsidae Gardner, 1928 (Bivalvia): Conchological Characters of Two New Species from off Brazil, Southwestern Atlantic
The new species from Brazil represent the first finding of these rare minute bivalves of this family from the southwestern Atlantic and may represent further evidence for the relatedness of spheniopsids and cuspidarioideans.
A new cladistic insight on comparative anatomy and phylogeny of rudists (Bivalvia, Hippuritida)
The phylogenetic history of rudist bivalves is reviewed using a cladistic analysis based on 41 morphological shell characters and a new topology is proposed and it is highlighted that ‘pallial canals’ can be homologous to four specific cavities that have merged during rudist evolution.
Morphology and taxonomic position of the bizarre Permian pachydomid bivalve Leinzia from Western Gondwana
Detailed stratigraphic data indicate that the vertical distribution of Leinzia is constrained to the middle part of the Guadalupian Serrinha Member of the Rio do Rasto Formation, southern Brazil, and strongly suggest a Pachydomidae (Edmondioidea) rather than a Crassatelloidea affinity for LeinZia.


Taxonomic concepts and superfluity in bivalve nomenclature
The taxonomy of the Bivalvia is threatened by a cloying nomenclature both at specific and higher categorical levels and reappraisal of various, recently proposed, systematic arrangements and judicious application of Occam’s Razor may allay the malaise of superfluity.
Phylogeny of North American amblemines (Bivalvia, Unionoida): prodigious polyphyly proves pervasive across genera
Parsimony and Bayesian analyses suggest that most amblemine genera, as currently defined, are polyphyletic, and the extent of Amblemini and the relationships of some genera previously assigned to that tribe remain unclear.
The origin and early taxonomic diversification of pelecypods

  • 1978
It seems likely that the solemyids are descendants of Ordovician palaeotaxodonts, and the group Heterodonta may be polyphyletic, as the taxa included within it seem to be derived from variousOrdovician groups, herein regarded as subclasses.
Reconstructing the Anomalodesmata (Mollusca: Bivalvia): morphology and molecules
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.
Taxonomy of and biological notes on the bivalve genus Microgloma, with comments on protobranch nomenclature
The protobranch bivalve genus Microgloma is proposed to be placed in the Nuculanidae (Nuculanoidea) from their similarity to young specimens of that family and sperm morphology and the development of five young born there, is concluded.
Morphological perspective on the classification and evolution of Recent Pterioidea (Mollusca: Bivalvia)
The proposed phylogeny integrates the cladistic analysis of the Recent Pterioid genera with the fossil record and suggests that the crown-group pterioideans probably originated in the Triassic from the Bakevelliidae, an extinct paraphyletic stem group from which the Ostreoidea are also ultimately derived.
Middle to Late Jurassic bivalves of the subfamily Astartinae from New Zealand and New Caledonia
These factors provide evidence for the temporary opening of an epicontinental seaway along the Gondic corridor, linking the Tethys Sea with the Bay of Antarctica, at least twice during the Middle Jurassic.
The genus Shikamaia has a unique ligament, modified from typical du- plivincular ligaments in occupying only half of the cardinal area, and having ligament sheets that extend themselves towards the beak with continued growth.
The Arcoidea (Mollusca: Bivalvia): a review of the current phenetic-based systematics
Previously published molecular data are reviewed and these support the inclusion of the Glycymerididae in the Arcoidea and indicate, however, that polyphyly is probably widespread at the subfamily level.
Phylogeny of Veneroidea (Mollusca: Bivalvia) based on morphology and molecules
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.
